During today's Wii U Direct broadcast, host Satoru Iwata revealed that the developer behind Kirby's Epic Yarn, Good Feel Inc, is hard at work developing a new title for the Wii U: Yarn Yoshi.

This is the first console game to feature Yoshi as the main character since Yoshi’s Story for the Nintendo 64 way back in 1998.

Takashi Tezuka, director of Yoshi’s Island and Yoshi’s Story, is "pulling all the strings" behind the development of the new game.

No release date has been given for Yarn Yoshi, but we can't wait for this game. What are your thoughts? Are you excited for Yoshi's new adventure?
