Yoshi Pulls a Kirby

Everyone’s favorite reptilian creature is back for more action as Nintendo has announced Yarn Yoshi for the Wii U. Taking a page out of Kirby’s book, Nintendo is converting our lovable creature into a full ball of yarn, and rightfully so as it’s the team behind Epic Yarn that will be leading the project. Expect more of an emphasis on the world and visual aspects, especially now that this is on an HD system.

Takashi Tezuka, best known for his work on The Legend of Zelda and Yoshi’s Island, will be supervising the development of the project. It has been a long time since we’ve received a full fledged Yoshi console game, but finally the wait will be over with Yarn Yoshi. Expect more announcements regarding the game to come during E3 (or hopefully sooner).
