Ostern im Schwammerlland
Ostern im Schwammerlland (English translation: Easter in the Mushroom Kingdom) is the name of a 2-page comic published in the 2/1992 issue of the German Club Nintendo magazine. The story continues in Super Mario: Die unheimliche Begegnung der Yoshi-Art.
It's almost spring in the Mushroom Kingdom, and Mario decides to take a walk. On his way, he meets Luigi and both agree to invite Toad and Princess Toadstool to a picnic. All of them bring some food, drinks, and a badminton racket. They sit down, having their picnic, when Mario detects a pink rabbit, carrying a basket full of Eggs. Assuming that it is the Easter bunny, Mario and Luigi follow the rabbit in order to be the first to get their Easter eggs. They do not manage to reach the bunny; however, it drops an especially big, green-dotted egg off its basket. As it turns out in the sequel, it is a Yoshi Egg, and Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Toadstool wonder what will emerge from it.
