Custom-Painted SNES Pays Homage To Yoshi’s Island

Are you green with envy about this custom-painted Yoshi’s Island Super Nintendo? No, don’t answer. The answer is, yes, of course.

Designed by Zoki64, who seems to always magically conjure up specialty versions of classic video game hardware, this PAL region SNES (which, frankly is the best-looking version of Nintendo’s 16-bit console) is draped from console to controllers in a wicked shade of green, in honor of Mario’s dinosaur buddy, Yoshi. In particular, Yoshi’s Island.

Known for his long-stretchy tongue and unstoppable appetite, Yoshi has been a featured face to almost every Mario outing since his debut back in 1991’s Super Mario World. He’s even been the star of a few of his own games, including the splashy motif used for this custom SNES, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island from 1995.

Great work as usual from Zoki64. And don’t forget that you can see more of his wild console paint jobs over on his deviantArt page.
