Poochy, the weird but good dog who appears in a variety of Nintendo’s Yoshi titles, is finally getting top billing in an upcoming 3DS port — and you can catch one of the new unlockable cut scenes from it now!
Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World is a 3DS port of the 2015 Wii U game Yoshi’s Woolly World, and will feature all of Yoshi’s levels plus lots of new extras. One of these is 30 stop-motion yarn figure animations in the game’s Scrapbook Theater, featuring scenes from the daily lives of Poochy and the Yoshis.
The new port will also include a Poochy Dash bonus mode, Poochy-Pups to help you in Mellow Mode, and the ability to do custom Yarn Yoshi patterns.
There will be amiibo support for the new game, including a Yarn Poochy amiibo who enters the game when tapped. Double Yoshi mode will also be making a return.
Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World goes on sale January 19 in Japan and February 3 in the US and Europe.
