Join Yoshi and his loyal friend Poochy in the Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World game, a lovingly crafted side-scrolling platform game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Launched on Feb. 3, the family-friendly game features six captivating and challenging worlds, each knitted to life with its own uniquely woven theme and bursting at the seams with secrets and collectibles.
By tapping the new Yarn Poochy amiibo figure – available separately or in a bundle with the game – Yoshi can summon support from his friend in each stage. The Yarn Poochy amiibo figure also unlocks timed challenges for Poochy-themed stages that reward new designs for Poochy once players complete the missions. And the Yarn Poochy is not the only amiibo figure that works in the game.
In addition to the game, one animated short starring Yoshi and Poochy will be unlocked every day for 30 days for people that own the game. These short stop-motion animations can be viewed through a menu in the game.
Less experienced players looking for a little help can easily switch to Mellow Mode while playing Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World to gain the assistance of Poochy Pups. These sweet little Pups will sniff out secrets and wrap up enemies, and can even double as yarn balls for Yoshi to throw.
