Good news for all you Amiibo collectors and Yoshi fans, Nintendo is making a giant Yoshi Amiibo! Mega Yarn Yoshi will work the same as other Amiibos and will only be available in green.
The Amiibo will also work with Yoshi’s Woolly World in the same way as the normal Yarn Yoshi does in that it will bring a second Yoshi in to the game and the ability to save the player’s favorite Yoshi pattern to the amiibo.
Release dates were revealed by Nintendo yesterday dating the release of Yoshi’s Woolly world and the standard Yarn Yoshi Amiibos on October 16th. Mega Yarn Yoshi won’t be available until November 15th.
There were also some other releases announced as you can see from the image above with Falco and Mew incoming as well as Isabelle, Digby, K.K., Reese, Cyrus, Tom Nook, Mabel and Lottie from Animal Crossing to coincide with the release of Animal Crossing Amibo Festival.
Good news for those who were thinking of investing in a handheld as of August 20th the new suggested retail price of Nintendo 2DS gets a price drop to $99.99 and still comes with a free download code for the digital version of Mario Kart 7 .
No doubt the Mega Yarn Yoshi will sell out, so if you are thinking of picking one up it might be a good idea to pre-order.
