I was thinking about Yoshi's Island, and how every time they try to make a sequel to the game it ends up failing. So I was just thinking a lot about what other things they could do for another Yoshi game. And then I thought...
Why doesn't Yoshi have any dinosaur friends?
So I started drawing some dinosaurs, Yoshi style! The tough thing about Yoshi, is that even though he's a dinosaur, he doesn't give off a prehistoric vibe. So when designing other dinosaur friends it's difficult to achieve the Yoshi spirit without treading into prehistoric territory. Part of the reason for this is because Yoshi was purely designed around gameplay, these little guys that I drew look to have some gameplay in them, but more like in the sense of a power-up, almost like the animal buddies from the DKC series. Or a gameplay alternative to transformations.
I'm sure I'm not the first person to give Yoshi some dinosaur friends either. But I really felt like showing them to the Nintendo fans out there. Suggest some ideas for names if you want too.
Oh, and Poochy!
