HOW TO GET YOSHI IN SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY
Super Mario Odyssey is finally upon us, bringing along Mario’s newest hat companion Cappy. Much like F.L.U.D.D. from Super Mario Sunshine, Cappy grants you all kinds of new abilities to explore your world, mainly using his capture ability where you an take control of items and NPCs. But one question is still on the mind of every Super Mario fan, will Yoshi be making an appearance in any way, shape, or form in Super Mario Odyssey?
Super Mario Odyssey follows what Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto calls the “core side” of Mario 3D titles also including Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. The more “casual” games he credits as being the Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 3D World games. For the core games, Yoshi was never seen in Super Mario 64, but did make an appearance in Super Mario Sunshine in 2002.
To get Yoshi in Super Mario Odyssey, you must first complete the game and unlock the Mushroom Kingdom. You’ll see Yoshi’s favorite fruits everywhere and a Toad that tells you that he saw Yoshi just before. Over on the left side of Peach’s Castle you’ll find a Scarecrow where you can throw your hat onto. Do that, and you’ll unlock a temporary staircase to the top of Peach’s castle. Up top there, you’ll find Yoshi’s signature egg that you can crack open. Throw Cappy onto Yoshi and you’re now controlling the lovable green dinosaur.
There are lots of puzzles in Mushroom Kingdom that will require Yoshi’s healthy appetite for fruit and ability to flutter, so make use of Yoshi on your quest of getting all of the Moons (or Stars at least in the Mushroom Kingdom) in Super Mario Odyssey!
