Editor’s Note: Yoshi’s Woolly World is out in Europe on June 26, but won’t be available in the U.S. until October 16.
Yoshi’s Woolly World is surely a contender for the cutest game ever made. Dozens of knitted dinosaurs inhabit an island crafted from felt, foam, cotton wool, and sequins. While Nintendo has already played with this style before in 2010’s Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Yoshi’s Woolly World does a much better job of exploring its potential. It’s always a pleasant adventure with interesting mechanics dotted about, but occasionally it pulls it all together and creates some really great levels, which feel specifically designed around Yoshi, and those really make it worth playing.
