Yoshi’s Woolly World Incredible World Map


One of my most anticipated games of this year is Yoshi’s Wolly World. The game just looks gorgeous and I have fallen in love with its adorable style (not to mention, it’s going to be pretty sweet to play with the fam). A recent screenshot of the games world has surfaced and it looks outstanding. Take a gander at the screen above and let us know what you think. Our good friends over at MyNintendoNews have also posted a number of new details regarding the game and you can read them below:

Enemies cannot be simply unraveled with Yoshi’s tongue, but instead have to be bested by first being bound in wool and then jumped upon

Enemies with the likes of Shy Guy, Nipper Plant, Lakitu, and Gusty

Every enemy has been rendered beautifully to reflect the artistic style whilst retaining the look and feel

Yoshi has a more traditional health bar and takes damage as you’d expect him to able to recover health by collecting hearts that have a distinct resemblance to the jumping star collectables from previous Yoshi games

Handles essentially identically to previous games in the series, with Yoshi’s iconic tongue being his primary method of despatching enemies

Yoshi doesn’t consume enemies and turn them into eggs, rather he unravels them and turns them into balls of wool

Can be used to bind larger enemies made of materials other than wool, create warp pipes, boxes, platforms, and many other parts of the world to help Yoshi achieve his goal

Also uncover hidden areas simply by unraveling them via a loose bow, revealing secret passageways or hidden items

Plenty of collectibles throughout the journey

Flowers allow you to achieve 100% in a stage and access a mini-game to garner more Beads

Beads are used as a generic currency and can be used to buy special badges that can assist you in a level

Stamp Patches are used to unlock Stamps to use on Miiverse once a certain amount have been collected

Collecting all five Wonder Wools in a level unlocks a new Yoshi design to use throughout any and every level should you so desire

Ranging from Flower Yoshi and Circus Yoshi to one that’s based upon the Shy Guy enemy

Yoshi can transform into an umbrella, a mole, a giant version of himself, and a motorbike

These transformations occur a few times per world and task you with reaching a goal within a certain time limit, or face having to restart it all again

Mellow Mode doesn’t remove all the challenge from the game

Difference in Mellow Mode is that you control Winged Yoshi whose Flutter Jump is replaced by the ability to float at Yoshi’s current height indefinitely

Easier to play in this mode, but you’ll still take damage and failing a level is still a very real possibility

You can have a friend join in the fun as a second Yoshi

Run around simultaneously in an effort to reach the goal, and should you run out of balls of wool, one Yoshi can be used as a short-range substitute
