Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World is a Nintendo 3DS port of the Wii U title Yoshi's Woolly World. The game was released in Japan in January 2017, and in February 2017 worldwide.

Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World launched alongside a yarn Poochy amiibo, which was also included with bundles for the game.


This version of the game features every stage available in the Wii U release, as well as additional new stages based on Poochy known as "Poochy Gold Rush", which replace the original bonus stages.[6] In these stages players run along a set path toward the goal, collecting as many beads as possible.[2] Another new feature for this version is the addition of Poochy Pups, small Poochy-like dogs that act as renewable eggs and help Yoshi find secrets by indication suspicious areas.[2] The Poochy Pups will only appear while playing in Mellow Mode.[6] Players can also scan the Poochy amiibo while playing a stage to have him appear and assist.[7] Unlike the original, this version of the game will not include multiplayer.[8]

In addition to the in-game Yoshi patterns (including the amiibo patterns[9]), players will also be able to create their own custom Yoshi patterns.[10] The Yoshi pattern editor includes two both easy and advanced settings for creating Yoshi designs.[8] Players can also share their patterns over StreetPass.[9]

As a bonus feature, this version contains 30 stop-motion animated shorts featuring Poochy and Yoshi, animated by Dwarf.[2]

Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World runs at 60 frames per second when played on a New Nintendo 3DS system, and at 30 frames per second when playing on the original hardware.[8]
