Yoshi’s Woolly World has a release date for North America, which was provided by Nintendo’s E3 2015 presentation.

In the game, players will collect, cooperate and “get crafty” using yarn, felt and other fabrics and textiles.

Pulling on strings in the game can leads to discoveries, while new transformations include a motorcycle, mole and airplane.

Tapping select amiibo characters to the GamePad creates new patterns for Yoshi, while new Yarn Yoshi amiibo let players control two Yoshis at the same time.

This first-ever two-player co-op Yoshi game includes Mellow Mode, which gives Yoshi wings.

Yoshi’s Woolly World will launch for Wii U in North America on October 16 and as previously announced, in Europe on June 26.
