Mega Yarn Yoshi? There’s a Mega Yarn Yoshi?!





The original Yarn Yoshi Amiibo were already pretty much the cutest thing ever. We also think that Yoshi’s Woolly World is generally rather an excellent game.

Now Nintendo have blown the roof off the cuteness scale by introducing Mega Yarn Yoshi.


Now, we know that doesn’t sound cute. Mega Yarn Yoshi sounds like he’s been heavily irradiated and is coming to destroy Tokyo – in the traditional Godzilla and Mothra sense, not the “Let’s deal with these Kaiju by building grossly impractical giant mechs” variety – but trust us, Mega Yarn Yoshi is bloody adorable.

Just look:

Look at how cute he is! Look at how Mega Yarn Yoshi towers over those regular Yarn Yoshi Amiibo! He’s like a regular pig among guinea pigs:

Waaaa! We want one!

Mega Yarn Yoshi won’t be available until November 27, 2015. Until then, you can buy the regular Yarn Yoshi Amiibo from Amazon now.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
