Yoshi’s Woolly World Launch Trailer is Adorably Gorgeous; Out Today on Wii U


Nintendo released an adorably gorgeous launch trailer for Yoshi's Woolly World, which launches today, exclusively for the Wii U console. You can view the charming new trailer below.

Yoshi's Woolly World takes us on a knitting adventure with gaming's most adorable dinosaur

Set off with a friend* through a wild, woolly world in this grand Yoshi™ adventure! A treasure trove of clever handicraft stages are ready for you to explore. Unravel their secrets and color your world with a spectrum of yarn balls to knit new paths and get every last collectible.

Knitting yarn, patchwork, and other handicraft materials combine into a whimsical and crafty backdrop for our knit Yoshi to explore. Instead of eggs, this time Yoshi tosses yarn balls that he can use to clear blocked paths, tangle-up enemies, or even knit together platforms and warp pipes. Yoshi can also tug at stray yarn to unravel walls and reveal hard-to-reach areas filled with hidden collectibles. Tackle challenges in local 2-Player co-op by partnering up with a friend. Gobble 'em up and spit 'em out to reach new heights or take out craftwork creepers like paratroopas, piranha plants and shy guys! It's time to get crafty.

  • Toss yarn balls to knit together background elements or tie-up enemies
  • Unravel puzzles and walls to discover hidden areas and collectables
  • Explore each crafty stage to discover new surprises—there's no time limit
  • Discover and explore new areas in 2-player cooperative multiplayer (additional accessories required for multiplayer mode; sold separately)
  • Mellow Mode gives Yoshi™ wings so everyone can enjoy

Yoshi's Woolly World is one of the biggest titles launching for the Nintendo Wii U this holiday season, and it serves as a testament to how innovative design and originality can overcome lack of raw processing power, to deliver an experience as gorgeous and visually appealing as the more advanced titles out there. Nintendo could achieve great things, and remains one of the few developers to deliver properly optimized games, with a number of great studios under its mantle.  Hopefully the company's next platform will allow for even greater things to come.

Yoshi's Woolley World is available exclusively for the Wii U platform. We will bring you any new information on the lovely platformer as soon as it becomes available.
