Yoshi’s Woolly World is not a rip-off of Kirby Epic Yarn, but they share many attributes.
The Wii U platformer was shown in action during Nintendo’s E3 2014 broadcast, and as you can guess it features Yoshi laying and hurling eggs at a range of woollen enemies, while unravelling blocks to access hidden parts of a stage.
His butt bounce and hover moves are in there, as well as his tongue and transformations. There’s also two-player co-op. One Yoshi can swallow then spit out his fellow Yoshi to attack enemies or reach high spots.
We’ll add the trailer here once it’s live. Stay tuned.
