Nintendo released new screenshots for the upcoming Yoshi’s Woolly World. You will get to see the new Amiibo functionality for the Wii U exclusive as well as the Classic and Mellow modes. If you are interested in the 2D platformer, you can preorder it right now with this page. Check out the new screens below this paragraph.
If you haven’t heard already, Nintendo will be releasing a blue, green and pink Yoshi Amiibos. As you can see above, the figures are actually made of Yarn materials. With that said, the NFC chip is still included in the bottom. When scanned into the game, these products will unlock a second Yoshi that you can use to help discover new areas and fight off enemies.
The above-mentioned Classic mode will let you play the videogame normally. On the other hand, Mellow mode gives Yoshi wings so that the green dinosaur can fly around the levels. You will be able to switch between the two at any time during a course.
Yoshi’s Woolly World, as well as its Amiibos, will be released in North America later this fall. With The Legend of Zelda Wii U being delayed until 2016, Wii U gamers should definitely check out the new Yoshi game when it launches.
