The evil Baby Bowser has cast a spell turning Yoshi’s Island into a picture book. Worse yet, the Super Happy Tree has been stolen, making the island dark and gloomy. Players must take control of six Yoshis, each a different color, and travel through six pages (worlds) of platforming adventure to recover the tree and return the island to normal! Featuring huge character models and bright, vibrant colors, the game’s various environments (such as woods, caves, mountains, and oceans) come alive in a uniquely gorgeous 2½-D look. Eat fruit, avoid enemies and obstacles, and throw eggs from the Yoshis’ never-ending supply in your quest to stop Baby Bowser’s plan from succeeding. If you’re good enough, you can aim for higher scores by being picky about the fruit you eat. And who knows, you might even find the mysterious black and white Yoshis!

From the brilliant mind of Super Mario 64 creator Shigeru Miyamoto comes a gorgeous game with a guaranteed storybook ending. Follow the adventures of six Yoshis as they search through sunny woods, dark caves, soaring mountains, steaming jungles, vast oceans and gloomy castles for the Super Happy Tree, which has been stolen by the dreaded Baby Bowser.
Back of Box (Australia):
Loosely based on the Super NES classic Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Story fully exploits the strengths of the world's most powerful game system. Yoshi can walk, run, swim, leap, flutter and fire his payload of eggs with unerring precision. The action takes place in storybook "pages" made up of bookmaking materials and other familiar textures, including cut-paper forests, denim clouds, inflatable plastic islands and stacks of colored spools.
Yoshi's Story pioneers use of the Rumble Pak as a key element of the game-play experience, as you'll be able to feel invisible but treacherous currents when Yoshi swims through oceanic depths. Yoshi's Story features the precise and responsive control players have come to expect from a Miyamoto game. With a light touch of the Control Stick you can float on a leaf, ride a friendly dragon and tiptoe past a swarm of angry bees!

Baby Bowser has taken the Super Happy Tree and cast a spell on Yoshi’s world, turning it into the pages of a picture book. The only Yoshis not affected by the spell were six hatchlings that were still protected by their shells. It’s up to them to reclaim the Super Happy Tree and restore happiness to the world. That is the only thing that can break Baby Bowser’s spell!
