Including Yoshi in the style of Kirby's Epic Yarn

Nintendo settled on a knitted yarn style for Yoshi's Woolly World and I don't know what's better: it or Kirby fashioned out of clay in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. Either way, we win.

There were other potential designs for this latest Yoshi outing, though. Nintendo EAD general manager Takashi Tezuka appeared on the company's E3 2014 Treehouse stream earlier today to share some prototypes, as shown in the gallery below, and oh my gosh. Adorbs.

Good-Feel, indeed.

Shame it's not out until 2015, a running theme for much of this year's E3 lineup. No Baby Mario, at least.
Yarn Yoshi is a pretty good name. Yoshi's Woolly World is an okay name. Yoshi's Yarn is a better name and what the game should've been called for the sake of alliteration and Yoshi's Story symmetry (a yarn is like a story!!!). I'm going to keep writing Yoshi's Woolly World as Yoshi's Yarn. Sorry.
At Nintendo's E3 Digital Event, Good-Feel gave us a long-awaited progress update on Yarn Yoshi, and it's without a doubt the Yoshi game we've been waiting for all these years. It's now called Yoshi's Woolly World and is set ...
