Ever since his debut in Super Mario World nearly three decades ago, Yoshi has become synonymous with adorable charm. As his early pixelated rendition gave way to more recent, fuzzier adventures, it became increasingly hard to imagine how the green dinosaur could get any cuter — but Yoshi’s Crafted World pulls it off. The new Nintendo Switch adventure thrusts a woolly version of Yoshi into a handmade papercraft world where you can dress him up with a milk carton or a cardboard cow costume. It’s painfully adorable. Platforming games like this are often built around challenges and inventive design, and while Crafted World has some of this, mostly, it’s just a really pleasant place to be.
The game is structured like most Super Mario games, pushing you through a series of short levels across various themed worlds. Yoshi has his usual array of abilities: he can jump, pound the ground, and use his disturbingly long tongue to eat enemies and turn them into throwable eggs. The levels are simple but playful, with a typically leisurely pace. You clear out enemies, navigate environmental puzzles, and collect everything from smiling flowers to hidden souvenirs. Each stage is designed to be replayable, so you can go back later and search for hidden items or earn more coins. Every once in a while, you’ll control a giant Yoshi or race to kill as many moles as possible.
Much like its predecessor, Yoshi’s Woolly World, Yoshi’s Crafted World is a satisfying, if not particularly inventive, take on the Nintendo-style platformer. Don’t go in expecting Super Mario Odyssey-level creativity. But the game makes up for this through sheer charm. Yoshi and the rest of the characters are cuddly stuffed animals, complete with fuzzy exteriors, while the levels you’ll traverse look like they were made by an especially artistic eight-year-old. You’ll ride on trains made of cardboard, slip into discarded milk bottles to find coins, wear dinosaur skulls made out of clay, and use magnets to climb old aluminum cans.
The new Yoshi is far from the first game to utilize this aesthetic, but what sets it apart is the attention to detail. This is a game where texture matters. The rough feel of a piece of construction paper, the brushed metal of an old tin can, or the scribbled coloring of a young child all give the game a real sense of place. Sometimes, you can see the labels on a discarded box of cereal that now serves as a building, and you’ll run past candy wrapper billboards and street signs made of soda bottle caps. There are a few moments where you’re able to run through levels in reverse, so you can see how everything was put together, with the otherwise hidden bits of tape and string now on full display. The details are especially apparent when you play on your television as opposed to handheld mode.
One of the new features in the game is the ability to dress Yoshi in various papercraft costumes. As you earn coins, you can spend them at a capsule toy machine full of eggs that each contains a new look for Yoshi. They are — and I don’t say this lightly — among the cutest things I have seen in my life. In keeping with the game’s theme, they’re all handmade, so you can make Yoshi look like a cardboard cow or have him slip on an old orange juice box or a Labo piano. My favorite is the trash can, with the lid serving as Yoshi’s hat. These costumes aren’t just there to swoon over, either; they provide some very welcome armor, making it easier to take on some of the trickier boss battles.
Really, what Yoshi’s Crafted World does is show the importance of a well-defined world. The game itself is delightful in many respects, unremarkable in others, but greatly enhanced by the detailed space it takes place in. I kept playing because it was fun, yes, but I was more interested in simply seeing more of the clever handcrafted objects that Nintendo’s designers came up with. The hardest part of the game is picking what to wear.

Yoshi's Woolly World
2015 platform video game
2015 video game
|Yoshi's Woolly World|
|Platform(s)||Wii U, Nintendo 3DS|
|Release||Wii UNintendo 3DS|
Yoshi's Woolly World[a] is a side-scrollingplatform game developed by Good-Feel and published by Nintendo for the Wii U. The game is the seventh main entry in the Yoshi series of games, the first home console title in the series since 1997's Yoshi's Story, as well as the spiritual successor to 2010's Kirby's Epic Yarn. The game was released worldwide throughout 2015. A port for the Nintendo 3DS, known as Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World,[b] was released worldwide in early 2017.
On a knitted island filled with many Yarn Yoshis of varying patterns, the evil Magikoopa Kamek turns nearly all the Yoshis into bundles of yarn for his master Baby Bowser, scattering them across different worlds. However, two Yoshis manage to avoid being transformed themselves, and they set off to pursue Kamek and rescue their woolly friends. After traveling through six different worlds, Yoshi manages to storm Baby Bowser's castle. When Yoshis reach Baby Bowser, Kamek reveals that he stole the yarn so that he could use it to grow Baby Bowser to a much larger size. After battling Baby Bowser, the Yoshis rescue their friends from Kamek and Baby Bowser. Kamek and Baby Bowser fly away, but crash land on the moon.

Yoshi's Woolly World is a platform game in which players assume the role of Yoshi. Similar to games like Good-Feel's Kirby's Epic Yarn, the game is set in a world where the characters and environment are composed of yarn and cloth. Yoshi retains much of his moveset from the Yoshi's Island series of games, including using his tongue to swallow enemies and using his flutter jump to reach high areas. Many elements such as flowers and mystery clouds also return. However, unlike other games where swallowing enemies would produce eggs which Yoshi could then throw, Yoshi instead produces balls of yarn. These yarn balls have various uses when thrown, such as tying up enemies or filling in certain platforms and objects. Players can also gather white chicks in certain levels, which produce temporary cloud platforms when thrown. The game also supports up to two players cooperatively. With both players able to swallow and throw their partners, allowing them to reach otherwise inaccessible areas. In addition, some sections give Yoshi special transformations, such as a motorbike or umbrella.
Throughout each level, Yoshi can pick up beads, which can be spent on Power Badges. These can support the player during a level, such as granting more powerful attacks, or the ability to recover when falling into bottomless pits. Each level contains five Flowers, five Wonder Wools, and twenty Stamp Patches, which are hidden behind certain beads. Flowers increase the odds of entering a bonus game at the end of the level, and collecting all Flowers within a world opens up a secret level. Finding all the Yarn Bundles within a level unlocks a new pattern of Yoshi, which players can switch to while on the overworld map. Collecting enough Stamp Patches unlocks special stamps that can be used in Miiverse posts. At any point in the game, players can toggle between Classic Mode and Mellow Mode, the latter of which gives Yoshi a pair of wings, allowing less skilled players to fly indefinitely through a stage.
The game features compatibility with Amiibo figures, including a unique knitted Yarn Yoshi Amiibo. Using any Yoshi Amiibo allows players to create a duplicate Yoshi during Solo Play, allowing solo players to replicate actions otherwise only available in Co-op Play. Additionally, the Yarn Yoshi Amiibo can be used to save a design based on another character. Other compatible figures, such as Mario and Donkey Kong, can be used to unlock additional patterns based on the respective character. The game is playable with the Wii U GamePad, Wii Remote, Wii Classic Controller, and Wii U Pro Controller.
Yoshi's Woolly World was first announced by Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata on January 23, 2013 under the tentative title Yarn Yoshi. The game was stated to be in development by Good-Feel with game designer Takashi Tezuka supervising the project. The game was absent from E3 2013, but was playable at E3 2014, where it was given a tentative release time frame of "the first half of 2015." The soundtrack was handled by Good-Feel composers Tomoya Tomita (now freelance) and Misaki Asada, with the exception of the main theme, which was written by Nintendo's Kazumi Totaka.
Special editions of the game's retail release bundle the game with the knitted Yarn Yoshi Amiibo, which is available in one of three colors; green, blue, and pink. Bundles included the game with a single Yarn Yoshi Amiibo, or all three. Players who purchased the game on the European Nintendo eShop before July 23, 2015 received a free download code for a Virtual Console version of the Nintendo DS title Yoshi Touch & Go.
Yoshi's Woolly World (and Poochy)
Yoshi's Woolly World received generally positive reviews, receiving an aggregated score of 78/100 on Metacritic based on 83 reviews.
GameSpot's Rob Crossley gave the game a score of 6/10, saying "Some would say that gives Woolly World its inherent accessibility, in that players aren't forced to take the hard road. But if you want to be fully entertained, the hard road is the only real option. It is your own degree of curiosity, and your compulsive nature, that will determine which route you'll take."
IGN's Daniel Krupa gave the game a moderately positive review, saying "It's incredibly familiar, but the imaginative and attractive art style makes it feel fresh and appealing. Outside of those great few levels, Woolly World is a more forgettable and fragmented experience. Cool mechanics are cooked up, but they're dropped into levels which never realise their full potential and fixate more on unearthing frustrating collectibles."
Nintendo Life's Thomas Whitehead stated that the game featured "some of Nintendo's best co-op platforming" with "clever, witty stage design" and "gorgeous" visuals, but found that boss fights were "repetitive and disappointing".
The 3DS version received similarly positive reception, also receiving an aggregated score of 77/100 on Metacritic, based on 56 reviews. Reviewers applauded the port for being a successful transition of the original game to a handheld, though some complaints were raised over the visual downgrade and lack of local multiplayer, with Whitehead describing it as "certainly a pity if not entirely surprising".
Yoshi's Woolly World launched in Japan with roughly 31,000 physical copies sold, and after two weeks, 43,000 copies were sold. In the UK, it entered the charts in fourth place. As of March 31, 2016, the game had worldwide sales of 1.37 million copies. The Nintendo 3DS version of the game sold 80 percent of its initial shipment in Japan, but only entered the UK charts in twentieth place.
A stage based on the then-unreleased Yoshi's Woolly World appeared in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. An upbeat remix of the music from the game's trailers is also present.
