Yoshi's Woolly World is a game for the Wii U. It was developed by Good-Feel, a game company that developed a similar game: Kirby's Epic Yarn . It is the next Yoshi game in the series after Yoshi's Story from the Nintendo 64. This game also supports usage of amiibos.


Yoshi's Woolly World is a platform game with textile and fabric environment which plays similarly to Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Story, with many features coming from these games. Yoshi is able to eat enemies but, instead of turning them into Yoshi Eggs as in earlier games, he now turns them into yarn balls, which can be thrown just like eggs. They can also be thrown at objects such as platforms and Warp Pipes made of strings and needles in order to make them solid.Smiley Flowers and Winged Clouds return and coins are replaced by beads. Each level contains 20 "Stamp Patches" hidden inside common-looking beads, similarly to the Red Coins found in Yoshi's Island games. Collecting a number of Stamp Patches grants the player a set of Stamps. The hit point system returns from Yoshi's Story. As the Yoshis are attacked by enemies, their Health Meter decreases and can be replenished with Hearts.

The game features two options for standard gameplay. The first is "Classic Mode," which is the standard gameplay similar to previous Yoshi platforming games. The second mode is "Mellow Mode." In this mode, Yoshi is Winged Yoshi and players can fly around freely, providing an easier experience. Players can switch between the two modes at any time via the pause menu.

In co-op mode, the players control two Yoshis, Green Yoshi and Red Yoshi. A Yoshi is able to eat their partner and either swallow them to use them as a yarn ball or spit them out to destroy obstacles. However, when a Yoshi eats their partner, the Yoshi getting eaten loses all of their yarn balls. If one of the Yoshis goes too far off screen it is placed into a flying Yoshi Egg and transported to the other Yoshi. When one of the Yoshis goes down a Warp Pipe the other one is transported with it simultaneously. A Yoshi is able to jump onto another Yoshi and use it as a platform.


Yoshi's Woolly World's director Takashi Tezuka has announced at Nintendo Direct on January 23, 2013 on the current development on this game. Tezuka is also known for directing Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Story.
