Yarn-made Yoshi among new range of Amiibos

Upcoming Wii U title Yoshi's Woolly World will bring with it a special Yoshi Amiibo made of yarn.

The plush accessory will come in three colours – green, light blue and pink – and allows players to unlock a second on-screen version of the character in the aforementioned game, which itself is due out some time in the first half of this year.

There are lots of other new Amiibos on the way, too. Nintendo has confirmed that May will see the release of Super Smash Bros Amiibos for Charizard, Pac-Man, Wario, Jigglypuff, Robin, Lucina, Ness and Greninja.

In the same month three Amiibos will also launch alongside Wii U shooter Splatoon. They will be made available individually or as part of a three pack.

In July they will be joined by Dark Pit and Palutena while September will see the release of Ganondorf, Bowser Jr, Olimar, Dr Mario and Zero Suit Samus.

Some of these may be exclusive, too, with GameStop confirming that it has secured US exclusivity for Ness.
