Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World

The ever-devious Kamek is up to his usual tricks and has kidnapped lots of the adorable Yoshis that inhabit Craft Island. The surviving Yoshis hold an important emergency Yoshi meeting and collectively decide to rescue their friends and chase the trickster responsible for stitching them up. And so another grand Yoshi adventure begins!


Introducing the new Poochy amiibo

Yoshi will have to jump, Ground Pound, gobble, and flutter in this side-scrolling platform game, across six captivating worlds, each knitted to life with its own uniquely-woven theme. Thankfully for Yoshi, he can now summon support from his woolly companion Poochy. By scanning a Yarn Poochy amiibo at any point during the game*, Poochy will accompany Yoshi and give him a helping paw**.

Scan a Yarn Poochy amiibo during Poochy Dash courses to unlock a collection of exclusive fast-paced and exciting Time Attack missions, that’ll have Poochy racing to beat the clock. Each Time Attack mission completed will also unlock a unique Poochy pattern. The Yarn Poochy amiibo will be available in a bundle with the game, or separately.

And the Poochy Pups!

Any less experienced players keen for a little help can easily switch to Mellow Mode at any point during the game to gain the assistance of Poochy Pups. These sweet little Pups will sniff out secrets and attack enemies, and can even double up as Yarn Balls, allowing Yoshi to throw them at enemies and otherwise unreachable items.


Stop Motion Animation

Players keen to see more Poochy and Yoshi hijinks can watch 30 delightful stop-motion animations, created by the Japanese animation studio Dwarf, included with the game. Enter Yoshi Theatre and watch as the Yoshis and Poochy get up to all kinds of light-hearted shenanigans. Keep your eyes peeled, as you’ll be asked a question at the end of each video.


Design your own Yoshi

Players can now design the look and feel of their own Yoshi character and play with it in-game. With ‘Easy’ and ‘Professional’ modes available, players can use their creative flair to truly customise their characters.
You can even share your Yoshi design with friends and family via StreetPassTM.

amiibo Compatibility

New to Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World is the ability to use the latest amiibo from the Animal Crossing and Splatoon series and more. Scan one of these compatible amiibo to unlock a personalised Yoshi, knitted to look like its counterpart.

Now Yoshi can explore Craft Island while looking like characters from the world of Super Mario, Animal Crossing and Splatoon such as Mario, Tom Nook, Isabelle, Callie and Marie.
