Yarn Yoshi revealed for Wii U

Yoshi's Island director and Kirby team in charge

Nintendo has announced a brand new Wii U Yoshi title, Yarn Yoshi.


Shown off on Nintendo's latest Direct broadcast, the unique looking platformer is being developed by the team behind Kirby's Epic Yarn.

Takashi Tezuka, director of Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Story, is supervising the development of the new game, which is said to be set in "a fanciful world of yarn and textiles."

Yarn Yoshi will be the first console game to feature Yoshi as the main character since 1998's Yoshi's Story for Nintendo 64.
