Nintendo has finally announced what everyone didn’t know they wanted until today and that is Amiibo made out of yarn, based on the upcoming Yoshi’s Woolly World. The three Amiibo are designed after everyone’s favorite dinosaur-like animal, Yoshi, and come in three colors: green, blue, and pink. It goes without saying that these are hands-down the cutest Amiibo on the market, but it should be said anyway: these are hands-down the cutest Amiibo on the market.

The usage of these Amiibo comes in the form of a second on-screen Yoshi to give the player some additional support. Akin to how second player would work in a traditional sidescroller, you can get the same functionality here in Wooly World. Additionally, you can use the second character to attack smaller enemies as you did in Yoshi’s Island with eggs, or use it to help cross barriers that would otherwise be left unexplored.

Yoshi’s Woolly World was also given a fall release window. With the game, these Amiibo will also be hitting store shelves and it’s to be assumed, like most other first-party game releases, there will be a bundle set that includes both the game and one of the newly announced yarn Amiibo. It doesn’t get much cuter than this; just take a look at these guys.
