Continuing its ongoing efforts to create the cutest thing ever, Nintendo unveiled Yoshi’s Woolly World last year as something of a spiritual successor to the already criminally adorable Kirby’s Epic Yarn, only with more dinosaurs made of wool and fewer vacuum-powered puffballs made of yarn. With the game being scheduled for release within the next few months, Nintendo has shared more about the game behind the cuteness.

Story-wise, the adventure features Yoshi, who must save his fellow dino denizens of Craft Island who were turned into balls of yarn by the evil Magikoopa, Kamek. Nintendo promises Yoshi’s adventure will take him across “lush woolly meadows” and “fluffy mountain peaks” and that “an even fiercer villain behind this pesky plot.” Considering the franchise’s history, I wonder who that secret villain could be…

In terms of gameplay, Yoshi’s Woolly World will feature 50 levels filled to brim with a plethora of collectibles. The Smile Flowers, a series staple, are returning and will help unlock minigames. Miiverse stamps can be unlocked by finding Stamp Patches. Beads serve as currency with which you can buy Power Badges, items that grant perks, upgraded abilities, and give you companions to play alongside. Hearts, unsurprisingly, heal Yoshi. And finally, each level contains five Wonder Wools, which unlock new patterns for Yoshi to don in his epic quest to save his friend. Here’s a video that shows off these patterns, all the while reminding you just how cute the game is:

Yoshi’s Woolly World is scheduled to ship in Europe on June 26. North American and Japanese release dates have yet to be announced, though one can’t help but imagine that mystery will likely be solved sometime between now and the end of E3 next month. Hopefully, we’ll also get to learn more about how the new, woolly Yoshi Amiibo will be featured in the game as well.
