Yoshi's Woolly World is an upcoming side-scrolling platform game for the Wii U. It is being developed by Good-Feel, and is the first home console Yoshi video game since the release of Yoshi's Story in 1998. The game is expected to be released in 2015.
Yoshi's Woolly World is a platform game in which the player assumes the role of Yoshi. Much like Good-Feel's previous title, Kirby's Epic Yarn, the game is set in a world where the characters and environment are composed of yarn and cloth. Yoshi retains much of his moveset from the Yoshi's Island series of games, such as swallowing enemies and using his flutter jump to reach hard areas. Elements such as flowers and mystery clouds also reappear. However, unlike other games where swallowing enemies would produce eggs which Yoshi could then throw, Yoshi instead produces balls of yarn. These yarn balls have various uses when thrown, such as tying up fearsome enemies or filling in certain platforms and objects. The game also supports up to two players co-operatively, with players able to swallow and throw their partners, allowing them to reach otherwise inaccessible areas.
