Unlock Skins for Yoshi with amiibo in Yoshi’s Woolly World
In addition to three wool Yoshi amiibo coming to market, most other amiibo also unlock content in Yoshi’s Woolly World in the form of skins / patterns for Yoshi. Nintendo announced this today.
Put Mario on your GamePad and Yoshi will be wearing blue dungarees and a red cap. He also gets a mustache on his nose. Donkey Kong unlocks a tan-beige Yoshi with a red tie in front. This way, every amiibo gives Yoshi a different look.
The following skins can be unlocked in this way: Bowser Jr., Olimar, Ganondorf, Palutena, Dark Pit, Zero Suit Samus, Ness, Pac-Man, Wario, Robin, Lucina, Meta Knight, King Dedede, Mega Man, Sonic , Captain Falcon, Shulk, Marth, Sheik, Toon Link, Bowser, Rosalina, Little Mac, Shulk, Pit, Luigi and Zelda.
In the game itself you can also unlock various colored Yoshis. You do this by finding the hidden wool in each level. Once you have found them all, you will receive a Yoshi.
The wool Yoshi amiibo have a different function. These add a second Yoshi to the game, so you can control two characters at the same time. Eating one Yoshi and throwing it away like an egg makes it easier for the other Yoshi to get to collectables.
Yoshi’s Woolly World will be available for Wii U from June 26. Also read: All amiibo waves with compatible games in a row.
