Yarn Yoshi is not supposed to be a sequel to Kirby’s Epic Yarn, but simply an entirely new game. By having the environments made of yarn, a lot of new abilities can be utilized.
Yoshi’s Woolly World will also support co-op play. Each player is able to eat the other player as part of the strategy. The environments and characters will have numerous threads of yarn to outline the details and make the game look significantly better.
