Poochy & Yoshi\u2019s Woolly World is confirmed for release on\u00a03 February 2017. Yoshi\u2019s Woolly World is one of a number of Wii U games that probably didn\u2019t get the attention it deserved on its original release. The reasons are obvious, of course, so it\u2019s nice to see Nintendo give\u00a0the game a second chance and\u00a0bring it\u00a0to the 3DS early next year. Whereas the recent port of Super Mario Maker saw the removal of several key features,\u00a0Poochy & Yoshi\u2019s Woolly World sees a number of additions, making the game an enticing prospect, even for players who played\u00a0and enjoyed the Wii U version. Firstly, there\u2019s the\u00a0starring role for Poochy\u00a0and his accompanying Amiibo. By scanning a Yarn Poochy amiibo at any point during the game he will appear and accompany Yoshi, helping out where needed.\u00a0The Poochy figurine also unlocks exclusive Time Attack missions and special Poochy patterns. Support is also included for the recent\u00a0Animal Crossing and Splatoon amiibo collections which also unlock new character-based designs. Quite how the Wii U's glorious graphics will translate to the lower resolution screen of the 3DS is anyone's guess. It\u2019s certain to look better than it does in these press shots, and if the likes of Super Mario Maker and Super Smash Bros for 3DS are anything to go by, it should just about retain its yarny charm. Also included with\u00a0the game are 30 stop-motion animations created by the Japanese animation studio, Dwarf. The shorts feature\u00a0Yoshis and Poochy getting up to all kinds of mischief and one can be unlocked each day for 30 days. Poochy & Yoshi\u2019s Woolly World will be available as a stand-alone game or in a bundle with the new Yarn Poochy amiibo. Pre-order\u00a0Poochy & Yoshi\u2019s Woolly World on Amazon.
