Closet craft nerds and video game goobers unite, literally, in Nintendo’s ambitious Wii U game that utilises knitting, handicraft and hurtling yarn balls.

Coming undone

Not a game fan? Let us bring you up to speed. Wii U is the next-gen successor to Wii, the home video game console created by Nintendo and played in lounge rooms worldwide. You can point, tilt, shake, tap, swipe, or even talk to the Wii U GamePad to make your games come to life, but with Nintendo’s new novelty, Yoshi’s Woolly World, all you’re going to want to do is touch.

The game was released in Europe last month, in Japan mid July, and October 2015 will see North American fans be able to enter the Yoshis’ own private Idaho, or make that their own private Craft Island complete with patchwork, crochet, and a set of crafty stages the knit reptiles have to work their way through.

There’s an evil wizard called Kamek turning Yoshi’s into yarn, enemies to be tangled, platforms and pipes to be knitted, walls to be unravelled and collectibles to be collected. It’s a haberdashery hound’s dream come true, and if you’ve mastered a pair of knitting needles then we’re guessing the game console will be a breeze.
