Yarn Yoshi announced for Wii U

From the team behind Kirby's Epic Yarn.

The team behind Kirby’s Epic Yarn is working on a new Yoshi game for Wii U, Nintendo announced during today’s Nintendo Direct presentation.

Takashi Tezuka, director of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island on Super Nintendo and Yoshi’s Story on Nintendo 64, is supervising the new game’s development, which is set in a “fanciful world of yarn and textiles.”

A title and release date was not announced. Though, Nintendo headlined this as Yarn Yoshi in their press release, so that’s what we’ll be calling it until it gets a real name.
