Yoshi's Island Zone is a DLC Zone featured in the Wii U version of Sonic Lost World. The level in particular is a crossover between the Yoshi franchise and the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, and it features a design based on Yoshi's Story in particular.
In Yoshi's Island Zone, Sonic travels to Yoshi's Island to save the Yoshis. Sonic travels through a 2.5D side-scrolling Zone featuring an influx of items from both the Sonic the Hedgehog and Yoshi franchises. The level contains elements from various Yoshi games such as Blue Warp Pipes, Piranha Plants, and Shy Guys. Rings are replaced with Coins too.
Throughout the level there are Yoshi Eggs that can be picked up. If the player then completes the level without taking any damage, the eggs hatch into various colored Yoshis and give Sonic several 1-Ups. After beating Yoshi's Island Zone, the level disappears until the player gets another 100,000 points.
