Well, here are some Nintendo trivia you may never have heard of – Yoshi (as also known in a group as “Yoshies” or “Yoshis”) seem to have different names.
Whether or not you want to accept this lore is entirely up to you, but according to Nintendo of Europe materials from back then, each of the Yoshi in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island had a name. There was Yoshi – Mario’s main companion, and we also have Jonny, Sunny, Claudi, Eddi, Netty, Tommy and Marci.
As explained by Super Mario Broth thanks to a scan from a Twitter user @SiggiStab, these names were actually used in the official guide for the game in that region as well as in Club Nintendo Comics. As pointed out in a response, these names were allegedly based on the names of Club Nintendo employees at NoE who worked on all of these materials.
Although these names are admittedly not known outside of this region, it is nice to finally be able to give a name to all these friendly faces. Do you have a favorite yoshi? Tell us below.
