Yoshi's Woolly World (ヨッシーウールワールド Yosshī Ūru Wārudo, Yoshi Wool World) is a platform game on Wii U developed by Good-Feel and published by Nintendo. It is the 13th installment in the Yoshi series and the first Yoshi game on a home console since Yoshi's Story in 1997. This game's graphics are stylized so that everything looks like it's made of yarn, similar to the Wii game Kirby's Epic Yarn also developed by Good-Feel.

In September 2016, a remake called Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World was annouced for Nintendo 3DS. It was released in January in Japan.

When the green, pink, light blue and Mega Yoshi amiibo figures are scanned on the gamepad, it will unlock Double Yoshi, which can join you in gameplay even if you're not playing multiplayer mode.



The game has two types of features involving amiibo.

Double Yarn YoshiEdit

When the player scan any of the yarn Yoshi amiibo in the gamepad, the Double Yarn Yoshi mode will start. In this mode, the player controls the two characters at the same time. One Yoshi can throw the other like a yarn ball, similar to Multiplayer Mode. This helps collecting hidden items in the stages.


amiibo PatternsEdit

Various different amiibo can be used in Yoshi's Woolly World to unlock special patterns/skins for Yoshi based on various character. For example, if you tapped the Mario amiibo in Yoshi's Woolly World, Yoshi would change its appearance and look like Mario.
