I like the idea but lets hope it isn't as bad as Yoshi's Story.

although the design is wonderful and the worlds vibrant, I cant help thinking that it looks too similar to epic yarn. notice the yoshi's foot and how it is slightly block-y and the yarn texture seems pasted on. i hope nintendo develops this much further.

It looks like an amazing mash-up of Yoshi's Story and Kirby's Epicc Yarn!
I'll admit that while I love Kirby games I didn't play Epic Yarn. As beatuiful as the artstyle was I couldn't get past the faact that You were playing an outline of pastel pink merging with lot's up other outlines of pastel colours. My eyes couldn't keep up with which outline was Kirby and which was an enemie or environmental piece.

The fact that Yoshi is a solid piece of knit-work has delighted me to no end! I loved playing Yoshi's Story when I was 10, and when I've replayed it since I always notice how lovely the artwork was with mixtures of patchwork cloth, cardboard cutouts and collages, and wooden blocks. My favourite levels were always the patchwork ones, so I'll be keeping my eye on this.

Never played Epic Yarn, but I still like the look of this. The style reminds me of Little Big Planet and Nintendo Land attractions. Lovely.

Yoshi is more recognisable to today's audience than kirby, so sticking him into this game was a wise move.

The whole Yarn work thing that nintendo has been doing certainly looks nice...but i feel like its losing its charm and originality a little.Not that this dosnt look good,the fact that yoshi is going back into the limelight(ah haaa...cause..the colour..nevermind..)Is always a brilliant thing,as hes a character that nintendo dont use a lot,and his games normally turn out great.So even if iam not too massivly into the whole yarn work thing,I still think it will fit yoshi quite well and this game certain is a reason for me to buy a wii U

I loved Kirby's Epic Yarn and if this game is more difficult, it will be a massive improvement

I don't know... I don't particularly like the style :(

I hope its a great game though, and not at all like Kirby's Epic yarn :/

That said, I'm still excited

I have to admit I'm not a fan of the Yoshi's Island game on GBA, either in terms of art style and also just the game itself, but this looks really nice and hopefully will be a bit different.
