We haven’t heard about Yarn Yoshi since the January 2013, but the game finally reappeared today during Nintendo’s Digital Event. The game is now known as “Yoshi’s Woolly World”.

Here’s what we know:

– Not just a direct sequel to Kirby’s Epic Yarn
– Now that they are working with depth / a 3rd dimension, they had to focus on that in development Yoshi games, unlike Mario games do not have a time limit so you are able to vastly explore the game world
– Turning out to be an action game with the ability to have fun in a wide variety of ways
– As they were thinking about how to build the game, it was built with exploration as the focus
– 2 player mode is in the game, 2 Yoshi’s appear and are able to help each other out
