Yoshi’s Woolly World is coming out on October 16, 2015 so it makes sense that Nintendo would spend a good deal of time talking about the game during their Digital Event.
They showed an impressive gameplay trailer that gave a LOT of information. It was also featured heavily on Treehouse Live segments. We learned a lot.
First, we confirmed that it was adorable. I’ll admit this is pretty cheap, but… man… this game looks too cute for words. The yarn aesthetic is pulled off beautifully.
Second, the difficulty scales based on use preference. The game defaults to casual. You can just cruise through the levels if you want. BUT, if you or your children want a challenge there will be plenty to be had. Getting 100% on each level will be a significant challenge.
Third, the amiibo functionality, while not being a functional addition, added to the experience just by being super fun. Being able to drop a Mario amiibo onto the gamepad to make Yoshi take on a Mario skin is just hilarious.
We’ll be following this game closely to see if there is anything new to learn between now the release date. Keep your eyes on Engaged Family Gaming for updates!
