For European Wii U owners after Splatoon arrives Yoshi’s Wooly World is the next big game from Nintendo and aren’t we excited. In fact it even more exciting with the knowledge that even more details have come out about the game, for now this is likely to be the last details on the game I post as we are starting to get more into the realm of spoilers know and I don’t ruin the game for any of us. Either way thanks to a new preview by Nintendo World Report we have more details to discover about the game, I will acknowledge some of this we already know but there are some new details here as well, take a look below to read all about it:

– Smiley Flowers make a return
– if you hit one at the stage’s end roulette wheel, a bonus challenge will await you
– collect fruit along the way
