You know what the problem with Yoshi is? He’s not cute enough. Yup, just way too hard-edged and badass for my tastes. Thankfully, Nintendo has heard my pleas and created Yoshi’s Woolly World, a game which stars an achingly cute knit version of Yoshi in an entirely fabric-based world.
There’s no precise word on when Yoshi’s Woolly World is coming out yet, but German YouTube channel ntowertv got their hands on the game and posted a nice, meaty 10 minutes of gameplay. Every second of this video will have you clutching at your chest from a cuteness overload, although the game is surprisingly challenging, according to some previews. Closer to the original Yoshi’s Island than the for-kids-only Yoshi’s Story.
So, are you looking forward to Yoshi’s Woolly World? Please note, we can’t be friends if you say you’re not.
Update: Nintendo just announced you’ll be able to use your existing Amiibo figurines to add bizarre Mario, Donkey Kong and Link-themed Yoshi’s to your game…
…if you weren’t into Woolly World before, you damn sure better be now.
