Subscribe to on

Join Yoshi and his adorable friend Poochy for a dyed-in-the-wool platforming adventure that’s bursting with colour and texture in Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World, out now only on Nintendo 3DS family systems! Read all about it at our official Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World website.

That naughty knitwit Kamek has invaded Craft Island and turned most of the Yoshis into yarn with his magic. Oh no! Not to worry – the remaining Yoshis on this island paradise knit together and set off to rescue their friends, with the help of the ever-loveable Poochy, of course. On your adventure, you’ll explore every level from Yoshi's Woolly World on Wii U, and discover a number of extra courses where Poochy takes centre stage!


This loveable little scamp is always happy to give Yoshi a ride – he can run across obstacles that Yoshi can’t handle alone, and he's pretty good at jumping to collect beads, too! In the laid-back Mellow Mode, the Poochy Pups will even sniff out secrets for you. Glad to have you along for the ride, Poochy!

Of course, Yoshi’s got a whole knitting kit full of tricks himself. Unthread walls with a flick of Yoshi’s tongue, throw Yarn Balls to knit in new platforms and Flutter Jump to areas that seem just out of reach. At certain points, Yoshi can even enter a Transformation Door and re-thread into fun new forms, including Umbrella Yoshi, Moto Yoshi and the gigantic Mega Yoshi!


With the Yarn Poochy amiibo (sold separately or as part of a software bundle) you can enlist Poochy's help at any time! Other amiibo (sold separately) can let you play with Double Yoshi in single-player mode, save Yoshi patterns, or unlock Yoshi patterns based on other famous characters!
