Mega Yarn Yoshi is coming back in stock soon, still 'extremely limited'

There's almost always an exception to any given rule, and Mega Yarn Yoshi is it for amiibo. For the most part in the past few waves, Nintendo has been doing a good job at providing ample stock for their customers. There are store exclusives...

These early Yoshi's Woolly World concepts are neat

Before Nintendo settled on the name Yoshi's Woolly World, the game was known as Yarn Yoshi. Do you remember that? It was only a few short years ago. The art direction was originally more in line with Good-Feel's prior game, Kirby's Epic Yar...

The hunt is on for the Mega Yarn Yoshi amiibo, here is what I found

Ever since July, I haven't waited in line for an amiibo launch. Today it would be my undoing it seems, as I missed out on the Mega Yarn Yoshi figure today at Toys"R"Us. Why did I go? My wife loves Yoshi, and hell, the thing is basically a s...

Yoshi's Woolly World is such a happy game

I'm about halfway through Yoshi's Woolly World and I am so grateful to have a dedicated co-op partner. There's this intoxicating contrast between the cute, handcrafted aesthetic and our innate desire to screw one another over as much as pos...

There are some unsettling amiibo outfits in Yoshi's Woolly World

Yoshi's Woolly World has been out in Europe since June, but it's only now available in North America. During that wait, I mostly forgot about the game's extensive amiibo support. Compatible amiibo grant a new look for Yoshi, but these aren'...

Damn you Nintendo! A Mega Yarn Yoshi amiibo exists

Nintendo of Europe just tweeted out the existence of a "Mega" Yarn Yoshi amiibo, which is set to launch in the region on November 27. Damnit. As a general rule, I'm done with hunting down amiibo. If one happens to cross my path or the abili...

With all of the poor handling of amiibo from Nintendo, you'd think it couldn't get any worse, but then things like this happen. Following on the heels of an entire shipment of Splatoon amiibo (and copies of the game) being stolen, Hype...

Yoshi's Woolly World is unbelievably beautiful

While I was a huge fan of Kirby's Epic Yarn on the Wii, it was never a game I could really recommend that people play. The gameplay was overly simple, it was tough to actually die and the art style, while beautiful, really suffered for bein...

Fly away from life's problems with Yoshi's Woolly World's mellow mode

Yoshi's Woolly World certainly doesn't look to be a stressful affair. Throwing clouds, floating through the air, and tongue-lashing with your yarn whip all seems so delightful. But, the game still poses a challenge, of course. However...

Double Woolly Yoshi! Double Woolly Yoshi! Double Woolly Yoshi!

We've already known for a while now what Yoshi's Woolly World's amiibo support would look like. Tap one of your Smash amiibo on the GamePad, and turn into some sort of dinosaur Mario mashup. I can't condone it; it's almost as off-putt...

Yoshi is trying to seduce me

This new Yoshi Figuarts toy is dawwwsome

What's the verdict on Yoshi's Woolly World? Unsurprisingly, Max says it looks and feels good. He's a huge fan of the original Yoshi's Island on Super Nintendo and after the recent Yoshi's New Island, this game and its adorable hand-crafted aesthetic can't come soon enough. Shame it's not out until 2015, a running theme for much of this year's E3 lineup. No Baby Mario, at least.   read

Sequin Yoshi, beaded Yoshi, and other cute prototypes

Hands-on: Yoshi's Yarn
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.   read
