We’ve done it again, internet. We’ve taken a sacred, beautiful thing that is a sea of singing Yoshis and peed on it.
Yoshi’s Happy Song plays throughout victorious moments in Yoshi’s Story, the 1998 N64 game that used to be full of innocence. Somewhere along the way through the 90’s and 2000’s, we found something. Something that can’t be reversed.
