We’ve now got some lovely new details regarding the sumptuous Yoshi’s Woolly World for Wii U. As well as the new details there’s also a number of screenshots that have been released which perfectly showcase the game’s gorgeous art style.

  • Enemies cannot be simply unraveled with Yoshi’s tongue, but instead have to be bested by first being bound in wool and then jumped upon
  • Enemies with the likes of Shy Guy, Nipper Plant, Lakitu, and Gusty
  • Every enemy has been rendered beautifully to reflect the artistic style whilst retaining the look and feel
  • Yoshi has a more traditional health bar and takes damage as you’d expect him to able to recover health by collecting hearts that have a distinct resemblance to the jumping star collectables from previous Yoshi games
  • Handles essentially identically to previous games in the series, with Yoshi’s iconic tongue being his primary method of despatching enemies
  • Yoshi doesn’t consume enemies and turn them into eggs, rather he unravels them and turns them into balls of wool
  • Can be used to bind larger enemies made of materials other than wool, create warp pipes, boxes, platforms, and many other parts of the world to help Yoshi achieve his goal
  • Also uncover hidden areas simply by unraveling them via a loose bow, revealing secret passageways or hidden items
  • Plently of collectibles throughout the journey
  • Flowers allow you to achieve 100% in a stage and access a mini-game to garner more Beads
  • Beads are used as a generic currency and can be used to buy special badges that can assist you in a level
  • Stamp Patches are used to unlock Stamps to use on Miiverse once a certain amount have been collected
  • Collecting all five Wonder Wools in a level unlocks a new Yoshi design to use throughout any and every level should you so desire
  • Ranging from Flower Yoshi and Circus Yoshi to one that’s based upon the Shy Guy enemy
  • Yoshi can transform into an umbrella, a mole, a giant version of himself, and a motorbike
  • These transformations occur a few times per world and task you with reaching a goal within a certain time limit, or face having to restart it all again
  • Mellow Mode doesn’t remove all the challenge from the game
  • Difference in Mellow Mode is that you control Winged Yoshi whose Flutter Jump is replaced by the ability to float at Yoshi’s current height indefinitely
  • Easier to play in this mode, but you’ll still take damage and failing a level is still a very real possibility
  • You can have a friend join in the fun as a second Yoshi
  • Run around simultaneously in an effort to reach the goal, and should you run out of balls of wool, one Yoshi can be used as a short-range substitute

Yarn Yoshi Amiibo Is Easily the Most Precious Object Conceived By Man

Not all Amiibo’s are created equal. Yarn Yoshi trades in the usual plastic for, well, yarn. It will function in the same way as other Amiibos, it will simply be far more cuddly. And, it will be available in three lovely colors!

Syncing up Yoshi will allow you to take a Yoshi pal along with you on your adventure, basically a two player approach to single player.

Wooly World will also offer two modes: Classic and Mellow. Mellow will allow newbies and weenies alike turn into Winged Yoshi, and breeze through tougher levels. Yoshi’s Wooly World will be available for Wii U this Fall.
