    I know some people weren't big fans of Kirby's Epic Yarn and Yoshi's Woolly World gameplay (judging by the handcraft-y aesthetics, I'm assuming this new Yoshi game is also from the team at Good-Feel), but I had a really great time just unwinding while playing with those games. They ended up being good comfort food games for me, and I loved that they could be so welcoming and engaging for players of very different skill levels.Edited June 2017 by Godots17thCup

    Hopefully it is the Good Feel team again, while not matching Yoshi's Island Wooley World is still the next best Yoshi platform game we have ever gotten.

    He may not be made of yarn any more, but he still looks like a plushie.
