Billions of years ago, dinosaurs ruled the Mushroom World.....then they went extinct. But, two eggs survived. Millenia later, the eggs hatch. To their disliking, they're species no longer rules, the entire planet is ruled by a mutant turtle. Said turtle sees the dinosaurs and says "I can't believe it. My fortune teller was right, the two remaining dinosaurs have hatched and evolved into Yoshis.", then he runs away. The Yoshis decide they'll try to defeat the turtle and get dinosaurs ruling again. Since they just hatched and don't have names, they decide to just go by "Yoshi" and "Pink Yoshi" for now. At the end, they've gotten so used to the names they just keep them. After the credits, it is present day and humans are the dominant species, Yoshi has a written out plan on how to take over the world, and he still plans on using it.
Every odd numbered level is a platforming level like the ones in the Yoshi's Island games. Every even numbered level is a Mario & Luigi styled RPG level. Each boss level has the same gameplay as a normal VS. Match of the Super Smash Bros. series (with no items), Yoshi & Pink Yoshi even have the same moveset.
The game features a multiplayer mode where player 2 can play as Pink Yoshi. Similar to Super Mario Bros., if one player completes a level before the other, that player will still be on that level. But what's different, is both players play at the same time. If no player is using the gamepad, the TV screen will be a split screen. If the gamepad is being used, the gamepad weilder must look at the gamepad's screen, while the other player gets to look at the TV.
The game also features a level editor. You can make your own level for either platforming, RPG, or Boss Fight, then play all your custom levels either solo or against a friend.
- This game was orignally to be released on December 18th, 2013. But is was moved to November to celebrate the Wii U's one year run.
