Pried from the tight grip of Nintendo, modder ĐeäTh has brought the Wii U exclusive Yoshi’s Island DLC to the Steam version of Sonic Lost World.
Back in 2013, Sonic Lost World was the first in a notoriously ill-fated three-game Wii U exclusivity agreement between Sega and Nintendo, among Sochi 2014 and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric. However, because of the Wii U exclusivity, Lost World included two impressive additions: DLC stages based on Yoshi’s Island/Yoshi Story and The Legend of Zelda. These Nintendo-themed stages couldn’t make the transition when Lost World hit Steam two years later.
Yoshi’s Island Zone is an all-2D stage pitting Sonic against Shy Guys and Piranha Plants in a stage entirely reskinned to match the Yoshi series. In beautiful blasphemy, Sonic collects coins, discovers hidden flowers, and attempts to safely guide Yoshi eggs to the end of the stage. Though sadly, Sonic lacks the a decent throwing arm and a prehensile tongue.
It’s unclear if ĐeäTh, who previously brought Weapons Bed to Sonic Forces, is also interested in restoring Sonic’s trek through Hyrule, but for now, enjoy the embroidered seas and hand stitched hills.
