NXpress #16: Virtual Boy 20 Year Anniversary & ‘Super Mario World 2 Yoshi’s Island’




The Virtual Boy proved to be a dismal failure for Nintendo but on its 20-year anniversary, we look back and discuss what was good about the console. Afterwards, we continue our Super Mario Bros. celebration and review Super Mario World 2 Yoshi’s Island. Since appearing in Super Mario World, Yoshi has received largely positive reception and has become one of the most recognizable characters in Nintendo’s roster. Ending the podcast is a discussion about what makes him so special.
