When Yoshi’s Woolly World launches later this year, it will arrive with some very nifty (and adorable) amiibo compatibility. The Yoshi amiibo, including the yarn based ones that will release alongside the game, will let you play with something called a Double Yoshi in the game.

What about Nintendo’s other amiibo? It’s ridiculous. It’s also amazing. The video above shows three amiibo patterns in action, and the tweet from Nintendo’s UK branch has a still of Yoshi all yarned up like Mario, including a fancy mustache.

Yep, that’s a good use for the pile of amiibo I have sitting around now. I’ll definitely be trying out all the ridiculous looking Yoshi.

Yoshi’s Woolly World is set to hit the Wii U later this year. We don’t have an exact release date yet, so stay tuned for that.
