The first Nintendo game to feature Yoshi since 1998 is making its way to the Wii U. Announced today at the Nintendo Direct live-stream, Satoru Iwata revealed that Yarn Yoshi would be heading to the console, from the developers of Kirby’s Epic Yarn.

The team that created Kirby’s Epic Yarn is hard at work on the first console game to feature Yoshi as the main character since 1998’s Yoshi’s Story for Nintendo 64. Takashi Tezuka, director of Yoshi’s Island and Yoshi’s Story, is supervising the development of the new game, which is set in a fanciful world of yarn and textiles.

The Nintendo Direct presentation did not say when this new Yoshi title would hit store shelves.
