Yoshi's Woolly World features unlockable Amiibo skins

Compatible with more than 40 characters.

Yoshi's Woolly World will let you dress your main character in more than 40 Nintendo character skins - if you have the appropriate Amiibo figurine.

Mario, Link and Donkey Kong versions of Yarn Yoshi are showcased in the trailer below, but the Wii U platformer supports many, many more.

Almost every character from the existing Super Smash Bros. and Super Mario Amiibo series is supported (although apparently not any of the Pokémon).

Bowser Jr., Olimar, Ganondorf, Palutena, Dark Pit, Zero Suit Samus, Ness, Pac-Man, Wario, Robin, Lucina, Meta Knight, King Dedede, Mega Man, Sonic, Captain Falcon, Shulk, Marth, Sheik, Toon Link, Bowser, Rosalina, Little Mac, Shulk, Pit, Luigi and Zelda skins will all be unlockable.

The game also features its own set of woolly Yarn Yoshi figurines, sold separately. Tap one of these (or a regular Yoshi Amiibo) to your GamePad and you get a Double Yoshi - two playable characters at once.

But there will be plenty of skins to unlock whether you have an Amiibo collection or not. Each level features a separate woolly pattern to unlock - see a few examples in the bottom video.

"Just like its knitted Amiibo companions, Yoshi's Woolly World offers a charming exterior that covers a solid structure and plenty of technology - but there's more to the game than its soft and cutesy looks," Tom Phillips (hello!) wrote in Eurogamer's recent preview.

Yoshi's Woolly World is due to launch on 26th June in the UK.
