Mega Man Amiibo Pattern in Yoshi's Woolly World?

So this is pretty cute. If you tap any of the 40 Amiibo available, you can unlock that character's costume in Yoshi's Woolly World. As you can see in the above trailer, the Mega Man Amiibo is supported.

They don't show the Mega Man pattern in action, but it sounds like we'll have the opportunity to play through the entire game as a Yoshi-Mega Man. That is crazy cool. Hopefully we'll see what it looks like soon.  

Yoshi's Woolly World is due this fall in North America; June 25th in Europe.


  1. Interestingly, the only characters in the Smash line not supported are the Pokemon characters!

    I find it very amusing that Nintendo can get the third parties to sign off on this, but not the Pokemon Company. (Nintendo co-owns the franchise among several other rights holders, but ultimately their ownership of it totals a third.)

    1. That's because the Pokemon Company is VERY strict about Pokemon appearing in crossovers. The only crossover that seems to be perfectly okay is Smash Bros., but otherwise they're quite picky. This is the reason why often in Nintendo crossover merchandise, you won't see Pokemon characters appear. It's also why there's a Pokemon Monopoly separate from the completely Pokemon-free Nintendo Monopoly.

  2. It is cool that Capcom is allowing the use of their IP in Nintendo games. Maybe Nintendo will develop a Mega Man game in the future? That would be interesting.
