“Thank you for rescuing me. My name is Yoshi. On my way to rescue my friends!”
In the second of our ‘core’ Super Mario Bros. series of podcasts, Leon, Darren Gargette and Sean Bell of Midnight Resistance launch into the 16-bit era. Super Famicom/Super Nintendo launch behemoth Super Mario World and cutesy swansong Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island capably book-ended the life Nintendo’s beloved early 90s machine. We remember a time of Switch Palaces and Star Roads, of Mode 7 and Super FX2 chips. Oh, and endlessly wailing infants.
