In case you haven’t been paying attention to the many Mario sports, party, and other assorted spin-offs, Yoshi has been making a habit of teaming up with the franchise’s other bipedal dinosauric character, Birdo. Known for being just a little bit weird, Birdo has gotten pretty close to Yoshi over the last 10 years, so it’s about time that they teamed up in a non-spin-off, perhaps taking advantage of that new fangled co-op everyone keeps talking about.
Imagine player one using the GamePad to control Yoshi while player two holds either the Pro Controller or a Wii Remote/Nunchuk combo. Both will possess similar speed and jumping abilities, but while Yoshi eats enemies and tosses eggs, the second player will spit eggs while looking fabulous in Birdo’s pink bow. And if she were included, we’d break that “no new babies” rule, because it’d be adorable to see Birdo accompanied by a toddler version of Princess Peach.
