Review Yoshi's Woolly World (Wii U)
Knitting ideas together
Nintendo has long been the leading light in the platforming genre, a part of that legacy being the focus of Super Mario Anniversary celebrations this year. It's a genre with plenty of scope for variety, however, which is something Nintendo pushed forward with the superb Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island on Super NES,...
Yoshi's Woolly World Guides
From the un-egg-ceptable to the egg-ceptional, as ranked by you
Yoshi! The little green dinosaur has been on our screens for a long time now — over 30 years, in fact — but did you know that his first-ever spin-off game was an underwhelming block-falling puzzle à la Tetris? Honestly, it's a miracle that Mr. Munchakoopas (to use his full name)...
Guide Funky Video Game Music - Groovy Playlist
Turn up the bass, baby
As part of our season of celebrating video game music that we're inventively calling the Nintendo Life VGM Fest, we're making a few lists of ~moods~, because that's pretty much how we organise our Spotify playlists these days. Everyone knows that video game soundtracks are full of epic orchestrations, relaxing melodies, and...
About The Game
A Warm and Fuzzy Adventure
￼Embark on a new Yoshi adventure in a world made from yarn, cloth and textiles. Explore the world by using yarn to weave wool platforms and warp pipes to reach new areas, and gleefully unravel its secrets and puzzles by pulling yarn walls apart. Add a little color to Yoshi's life with a spectrum of yarn balls. Then team up with a friend to have a ball together in this wild and woolly world.
- Players tangle, pull and stitch yarn to explore Yoshi's world in creative new ways.
- Yoshi has never been more adorable than as a toy knit from yarn. His entire environment is made from materials like felt, yarn, cloth and cotton, creating a gorgeous HD world that looks good enough to touch.
- Instead of eggs, Yoshi tosses yarn balls at enemies. He can incapacitate a Piranha Plant by muzzling it with a piece of colored string. Or he can even use the yarn to knit together background elements.
- Gobble friends and turn them into eggs. Then toss them into hard-to-reach heights and secret depths to discover in two-player cooperative play.
- The game is co-developed by Good-Feel, the developer that created Kirby's Epic Yarn, and Nintendo Co., Ltd under the supervision of Takashi Tezuka, producer of Yoshi's Story and the Yoshi's Island series.
Yoshi's Epic Return! This game will be mine day 1, most certainly. Love the visuals.
I hope it's not a ripoff of epic yarn. If it didn't look so great, I'd be pessimistic.
Yoshi reminds me of sack boy here
@2Sang It's made by the same team, I wouldn't call using your old ideas with a new character a rip-off. Just... not creative.
Yoshi looks more like a homemade plush animal than he is yarn...
finally a new yoshi game thats not mario riding him
@ReshiramZekrom You're right.
Anyway, this game looks like it could be neat. No as pumped for this as I am Wind Waker HD, but still maybe a reasonable game. Hopefully it ends up better than Yoshi's Story. Wait, it maybe different due to it having the developers of Kirby's epic yarn.
Little big Yoshi?
Kirby's Epic Yarn was cool with the graphics. Yoshi's games were always fun too IE Yoshi's Island. Will be getting this, maybe at release.
@Gansano i bet Mario is upset
I always found the idea of turning a Classic game series and taking a risk into something new that fans will love. Kirby's Epic Yarn was a gamble but, was (like in the title) epic! Yarn Yoshi will be on my Wii U checklist!
I am pretty excited about this. My wife and sons had a great time with Kirby Epic Yarn, i Hope it is as good.
Noticing Nintendo goes with material based like things for their games. Paper... Now yarn? Nintendo sure has an imagination, I like that.
@MrWalkieTalkie Hahahaha, epic ^^
This certainly aint for the hardcore gamer, more for the softcore ^^
@Gilius Yeah, I really like how some games are styled like that. Looking like they're made out of paper or yarn or other household objects like in Nintendoland, it's like they're hand crafted adventures Nintendo made during an arts & crafts session!
@Bumpon big little yoshi
Can't wait till he finally returns to his own adventure again.
We'll probably see some more info on this within the next couple of Nintendo Directs as we start to head into 2014.
Any Clue when this one is coming out? I'm getting very impatient.
Looks great, wanna get my hands on it to do a review.
Can't wait, KEY was one of my favourite games on the Wii. If they remove the un-killibility it would be amazing.
Don't forget that they made Wario Land: Shake It! either. That game was fairly easy for a normal play but was brutal to 100% just like Yoshi's Island was. Good-Feel is the perfect fit for Yoshi, in my opinion.
Wonder if it will have the casual multiplayer like Kirby's Epic Yarn as well. The game is dirt easy, but it's a blast to play with my wife, and my daughter will hopefully be playing too soon.
Its been a year nintendo and no more details about the game ... where is it ?
I love the aesthetic of this game. I bet this game is going to be great. Can't wait to play it.
I can't wait to play this game! It's gonna be awesome!
I loved Kirby's Epic Yarn and I plan to pick this game up as soon as it comes out. The WII U is building a catalog of outstanding platformers!
I think theres a possibility that kirby will appear in this game.
I was on nintendo's website, and under "games featuring our favorite characters" i clicked on kirby, and one of the games that came up was yoshi's wolly world.
Yoshi has always been one of my favorite Nintendo characters, so after seeing this game coming out, I was sure to get this game when I can... Because Yoshi is awesome
I love the art style in this game. I also like the new "claymation" style Kirby!
My first Yoshi game was Yoshi Cookie. Loved that game as a kid
yarn yoshi is soo adorable
Never liked Kirby's Epic Yarn,
Yoshi is my least favorite Mario character after Toad.
I suck at platformers.
Day one purchase for me.
Can't wait for this!
Just ordered this. I can't wait!
I find very little replay value in this game, sadly.
I adore this game. I can't wait for YCW.
