Splatoon could have had Yoshi as the main character

    No way. I'm glad they didn't put Yoshi or Rabbits in the game .-.

    But the development team were considering many different types of characters to put in the game. They were ever considering Mario. Now that's one character I'm glad wasn't made the main character. He has too many games already. It was about time for something new and fresh <3

    I have no idea why they'd consider putting in astronauts :panda:

    Man I really like Yoshi ,but I'm very glad that didn't happen. I like how the rabbits have the same vibe as the Inklings , but it's just too weird to look at for too long. lol Interesting idea for having an astronaut like suit . Maybe at one point there was talks about make space turf wars. They should at least made astronaut like gear as a throw back to this little idea.

    It would have been interesting if they put yoshi in the game. What exactly would Yoshi be doing in the game? Like mentioned I am glad they didn't put Yoshi in the game. It was great already on how they made the game. If they put yoshi in the game maybe it wouldn't be as good?

    The squid kids work pretty well in this case.

    If Yoshi were in Spaltoon 2 I could see Yoshi throwing eggs like paint grenades and covering a large area with corresponding colored ink. May be Yoshi could "eat" an Inkling and pop them out as an egg that would explode either as a time bomb (based on how long it takes to respawn) or throw them as an egg grenade. I don't play or own Splatoon 2 currently despite having a Switch, maybe I would be interested if Yoshi and other familiar Nintendo characters were in the game...

    Oh thank god. I don't hate yoshi but whenever Nintendo uses yoshis, the game sees very very childish... Splatoon has a very unique style that probably would not have worked with yoshi, or anything besides inklings.
