Oh god, these Yoshi’s Wooly World prototypes ⊟

These way cute prototype pics of the Wii U game popped up in this afternoon’s Treehouse E3 stream segment with producer Takashi Tezuka. Like everything else awesome shown at E3, it won’t come out here until some time next year. The actual game is super adorable too.

Thanks to Ewzzy for the tip and for posting the shots online!
