A brand new family friendly game, Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World is about to land on the Nintendo 3DS console on February 3rd.
The game’s about to offer unlimited fun not just in-game but also has a supported Amiibo that you can buy individually to make the most out of it.
Noted as the cutest game of 2017, Nintendo made the announcement in their blog page confirming the launch date for Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World. The side-scrolling platform game expands into six large, captivating worlds with fun-filled challenges and objectives to achieve. Inspired by the Woolly world, each one of them features unique characters, gameplay style combined with addictive puzzles to solve.
Nintendo confirmed that the game is best experienced when you purchase the Yarn Poochy amiibo figure. The figure is not bundled with the base game. However, you can purchase it as a bundle along with the game or get it as a separate add-on. Tapping the amiibo will add a friendly character in-game allowing Yoshi to fight and complete levels alongside a friend. A great addition is that the developers have incorporated a lot of amiibos into the game to make it more fun.
If you already own any figures from the Splatoon or Animal Crossing, you can tap them so as to bring their characters into the game. The available ones include Callie, Marie, Isabelle and Tom Nook. While there could be more surprise entries, they were not listed right now. The game designed for the family of Nintendo 3DS systems is designed to work across multiple titles and various amiibos that you may own. The team wants you to try them all to check their compatibility.
Besides the challenging worlds, the game has a Craft Yoshi mode where players can create their custom Yoshi designs using the touchscreen on the 3DS console. The best and most colorful of them all can be shared on StreetPass for other gamers to check it out. As they specified, this is easily the cutest game of the year as the title adds in fluffy poochy pups when played in Mellow mode. The easiest mode in Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World is also the cutest which prompts the pups to find enemies, sniff secret areas and even can be used as a weapon during boss fights. Yoshi can turn the pups into yarn bulls to hit enemies with them.
Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World for Nintendo 3DS is priced at $39.99. A bundle including the amiibo will cost $49.99 or if you choose to buy it separately, it’s priced at $16.99.
