Yoshi rip-off game Era's Adventures changes main character, still looks like Yoshi


Remember Era's Adventures, the game that used a Yoshi character model and was up for sale on the Android app store? Those days have now come and gone. The developer has removed Yoshi and is evolving a character of his own. This is because Nintendo reached out to him on the matter. Here's what the dev had to say to Kotaku.

"Yes, and they did with rightly since the original Era was Yoshi's character. The new Era is also similar to Yoshi but we are cooperating with Nintendo about the changes required by them but till that time the only thing that we could do is to re-color it, remove the carapace and some other parts and make some changes in "Eras" head shape."

Want to see what the new character looks like?


I think Nintendo might request just a few more changes...

It's gone from the same model to "chinese counterfeit toy" model now.

The game is still awful, and also, he changed it awhile back. (about a month IIRC) I have both versions on my...now broken phone :(
edit: It's not necessarily his fault, he did pay like $60 for it, that other company shouldn't be allowed to sell him. (well, the game being awful and him not knowing about Yoshi is his fault, i guess)

...ok...

NOW it looks more like a character inspired by Yoshi rather than a complete ripoff it was before. xp

That's CLEARLY not a Yoshi anymore.

...it's a Yoshi made by someone who doesn't know what Yoshi is supposed to look like.

So bad. I'd still say it looks like almost a relative of Yoshi now with a hat on. :roll:

That's clearly bloshi. A completely original character he made by himself.

Just make it a different model now. Also, give him a tie.

The fireballs aren't even coming out his mouth, they're coming out of his forehead. That's how we know its not a real Yoshi, but an imposter!

How hard is to make a character? I mean, they made a full game, just to rip off Yoshi, why not use Yoshi body with other character head and make some changes and done, the second Yoshi is still Yoshi, ask anyone what character is and is Yoshi....

This game looks so bad, was he so strapped for any recognition that he couldn't come up with ANYTHING!? lol. Glad the trailer at least shows off how poor the game is.

I hope Nintendo reads this site, reads your comment, puts a Hip Hop Yoshi named Bloshi in the next Yoshi's Island on 3DS and gives him a tie like all the other comments are saying in this thread.

The only remarkable thing about what I've seen or rather heard is the music. It's kinda nice.
Bleh on all other fronts.

So he colored his belly a different color, took off the saddle, and threw a hat on him... Yeah, I don't think that's gonna cut it.
By the way that game looks terrible. I like how it says "founded keys" in the top right though. :lol:
