Welcome to Craft Island

Set off with a friend* through a wild, woolly world in this grand Yoshi™ adventure! A treasure trove of clever handicraft stages are ready for you to explore. Unravel their secrets and color your world with a spectrum of yarn balls to knit new paths and get every last collectible.

Spin a yarn and get set for adventure!

Kamek is back, and this time he's turning everyone into wool! Only Yoshi can rescue his friends and stop this magikoopa's mischief once and for all.


Help out a friend— or eat up a frenemy!

For the first time in a Yoshi game, you can team up* in story mode. Toss your partner to hard-to-reach areas or gobble them up and turn them into a yarn ball. Play nice or play naughty—it’s up to you!

Bounce it!

Stop and smell the Smiley Flowers

Exploring Craft Island can be fun and rewarding! Some of the goodies you can find include:


Unleash amazing abilities with Power Badges

The further you get in Yoshi's Woolly World, the harder it gets. Luckily, you collect beads in the game to purchase Power Badges, which temporarily boost your Ground Pound, bounce you out of pits, reveal hidden items, and more.


Simple to start, devilishly difficult to finish

The gameplay in Yoshi's Woolly World is simple enough to pick up and play, but once you get past the first level, the difficulty steadily increases until even the most hardcore gamer will be sweating.

If you do manage to make it through the entire game, even more challenges await, like the Boss Tent, where you test your skills against all the bosses from Yoshi's Woolly World for a chance to win Bronze, Silver, or Gold Yoshi.
