Yoshi's Story was released on March 10, 1998 in North America.
The game was deemed too easy and little rewarding, thus Nintendo of America demanded that the difficulty of the game increased. The game's international release was delayed, and the designers decided to polish the game, cleaning up the graphics, adding white fences on cardboard courses, Egg Blocks with colors matching the Yoshi character in use, new locations for items, a slightly different ending when the player finishes levels with only melons and additional secrets, including a save feature for Story Mode.
Re-released on the Wii's Virtual Console service on sept.17, 2007 in North America, oct.26, 2007 in Europe.
