Yarn Yoshi Amiibo

The Amiibo news just keep coming from today’s Nintendo Direct with an adorable Yarn Yoshi Amiibo. These figures are actually made from yarn and will be available in green, pink, and light blue colors. You can expect to collect them all when the Yoshi’s Woolly World game launches in Fall 2015.

According to the video shown in the Nintendo Direct, simply tap one of these yarn amiibo to the Wii U GamePad to make another Yoshi appear in the game. Playing with double Yoshi allows you to turn the other Yoshi into a yarn ball to throw at enemies or cross long jumps.
