Nintendo announced back in 2016 that when Yoshi’s Woolly World will be coming to the 3DS under Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World in 2017, they also stated that shorts will be releasing up to the game’s launch. Recently two of them released, one for NA/EU (above video) and another one on Nintendo’s Japanese YouTube channel (below video).
These are really charming, as they show Yoshi and Poochy having fun interacting with each other. I love how in the first video, Yoshi is trying to make Poochy ‘fetch’ the Yarn balls but he just smiles and watches Yoshi throw hundreds of them. It is great seeing Nintendo expand it’s characters a bit into other mediums and when the final game releases, it will contain a number of these shorts.
Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World releases on 3DS February 1st in NA/EU but will release first in Japan this month.
