Nintendo is all in on Amiibos, announcing new waves for many of the games coming to Wii U later this year. Yoshi's Woolly World is one of those games landing a small series of Amiibos...all made out of yearn. The series consists of three Yarn Yoshi Amiibos (pictured below). The Yarn Yoshi Amiibos bring a second Yoshi into the game, allowing players to guide "double Yoshi."

Nintendo also announced that Yoshi's Woolly World will feature two modes: classic Mode and Mellow mode. Classic mode is designed similarly to other Yoshi titles and is said to be quite challenging, even for veteran players. Mellow mode allows players to play as a winged version of Yoshi, who can glide easily through levels. Players can switch between the two modes at any time during play.
