    An excellent platformer for 3DS and one of the best options for the system. It has tons of contents and joy. The difficulty level is just right.

    This Yoshi's port is remarkable in each of every part of the game. The level design continues to be superb, and the handheld environment feels as pure as the original. Probably the best Yoshi's adventure ever seen in a handheld.

    I'd first encourage you to play the Wii U version if you have the means, but if you don't own a Wii U, this 3DS take is still great. [Issue #26 – March/April 2017, p.73]

    If you are up for a meaty platformer, Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World will keep you entertained throughout February.

    Yoshi's Woolly World is still a funny and colorful platform game, but the screen size and resolution don't allow the original art direction to shine as it should.

    This game is fine on 3DS, but we do miss the beautiful cutesy graphics the original offered us on Wii U. It is amazing how Nintendo offers an easier way of playing, while still offering an entertaining game.

    Entertaining and beautiful platformer for 3DS handheld is designed especially for those who loved the animated adventures of a blue-eyed cat in their childhood. [Issue #271]

    The original was straight up amazing, the same can be said here. While the port offers little for the main mode, it offers much more in sideThe original was straight up amazing, the same can be said here. While the port offers little for the main mode, it offers much more in side modes; such as the Poochy levels, additional amiibo support, 31 animated shorts and the ability to create your own Yoshi designs. While it seems like little details that could've (and probably should've) been in the Wii U version, those little details are what makes the 3DS version just as good as the Wii U version. All the Wii U's content is present, making it a packed game with more to enjoy. Of course, the graphics can't compare to the Wii U version, but if you're the type of person who cares more about a game's content over it's looks, then this is easily a must have for the 3DS and even worth the second time around if you've already played the Wii U version.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game looks amazing. All of the new content impressed me with the new amiibo yoshi designs, hilarious shorts and the ability to make your own Yoshi designs. I don't really care about its graphics and lack of Co-op. Expand

    Remember in 2010, when we got Kirby's Epic Yarn? Well Yoshi wanted in on the action and we got a game almost as good! Yoshi is adorable but itRemember in 2010, when we got Kirby's Epic Yarn? Well Yoshi wanted in on the action and we got a game almost as good! Yoshi is adorable but it has those sort of challenges that only Mario games seem to have. It even adds to the Wii U version, which super mario maker failed to do >:(. This is the second best game of 2017, Miitopia being the best, and also the second best 3ds game, Miitopia being the best. If they make a sonic yarn game with chao, I will explode with cuteness.

I hate that because it's similar with Mario Maker, they offer the same game mechanics but with LESS features because these games were designed for a home console. Although If you skipped Woolly World on Wii U, Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World offers what is essentially a straight port... don't bother if you already own the Wii U version Expand
