Yoshi's Island for a Baby Mario-sized price


Artoon is in the news right now for the Mistwalker-assisting work of founder (and Sonic the Hedgehog character designer) Naoto Oshima. But before Oshima was designing blocky, vacant-eyed adventurers, he served as producer on a fairly high-profile Nintendo project: Yoshi's Island DS.

In case you have yet to see how the creator of Blinx: The Time Sweeper handled the sequel to one of the most beloved Mario games ever, Amazon is giving you the chance to check out the game for a painless $15. The critics got a kick out of it, at least. And if you're going to buy one game about taking care of babies, it may as well be this one and not ... one of the others. But be quick about it: this deal expires at the end of the day.

Now $19.99, thanks to DSFanboy. :(

I was browsing Amazon and checked their Deal of the Day (yesterday, my time, but after midnight EST, and Yoshi's Island was out of stock). So not knowing the price, I decided to check in the morning to see if Amazon restocked. I checked in the morning and found Yoshi's Island DS at $14.99! I quickly searched for another $10 item to qualify for the Free Super Saver Shipping option.

I had bought Yoshi's Island for my niece last year, but I couldn't afford to buy one for myself. :(

So after about 15 minutes, I found another item to get the Free Super Saver Shipping, but the price had changed to $19.99.

How could that have happened I asked myself?

Then I checked my favorite website, DS Fanboy, and lo and behold, the first thing I see is ... Yoshi's Island DS for $14.99.

:(

Peace.

Yoshi's Island DS is amazing.
Better then New Super Mario Bros by far.

Recommended for any age as well.
(I'm 21, but my sister, 15, loves it and a friends sister, 7?, also loves it)

Saw this game for $15 at Costco last night. Looks like that's the regular price, so forget Amazon if you can get your butt over there.
