Turns Out Yoshi’s Woolly World Was A Total Accident
It’s been put forward during Nintendo’s Direct that Yoshi’s Woolly World was in fact a concept that was stumbled upon by pure coincidence.
A commentary about the game showed a Nintendo employee, who confessed she was not developer or artist, telling the camera that knitted a yarn version of Yoshi and brought it into the office. From there, the idea from Yoshi’s Woolly World was born and built from the ground up, from the game’s entire concept right down to the amiibos it would support.
Yoshi’s Woolly World releases June 26.
