Everyone’s favorite little green dinosaur is about to make another Wii U eShop debut, as Yoshi’s Story is heading to the North American Virtual Console tomorrow.


Originally released for the Nintendo 64 in December 1997, Yoshi’s Story follows a technicolor tribe of the titular dinos as they head out on a quest to save the Super Happy Tree from the clutches of Baby Bowser. The entire game features an arts-and-crafts aesthetic, much like last year’s Yoshi’s Woolly World, with cardboard mountains and fabric skies. It was also the first time players heard Yoshi’s now iconic voice, courtesy of composer Kazumi Totaka.

Unfortunately Yoshi’s Story remains a divisive game, with many criticizing its short length and easy difficulty, while others love its design innovations. Tomorrow, for $9.99, you can open up Yoshi’s Story and see for yourself.
