Totaka's Song is a classic Nintendo easter egg that appears in games sound director/composer Kazumi Totaka has worked on for the last 25 years.  He also provides the voice for Yoshi, so in this case, he's singing his own tune!  Check out other games the song has appeared in here:

We were introduced to the yarn Yoshi amiibo at E3, but nothing could have prepared us for this cuteness.

According to Nintendo Life, Nintendo will release a giant, 'mega' version of the adorable thing:

The Yarn Yoshi amiibo triplicate was a great move by Nintendo - it brought the idea of toys-to-life into actual toys that aren't glorified statuettes. Three clearly wasn't enough though, as now we can expect a giant variation of these adorable critters to arrive in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand in November.

The amiibo has identical functionality in Yoshi's Woolly World to its standard-sized cohorts, spawning a second Yoshi to be controlled in tandem to your main dinosaur pal. The amiibo chip is contained in this one's foot rather than its base, and it stands at roughly two and a half to three times the height of the previous three.



Oh my god, look at it:



Although it's a few months after the release of Yoshi's Wolly World, it still melts our hearst.

Language Warning: Yoshi spits more than just Koopa shells. 

Yoshi finally gets a change to switch places with Mario and it becomes pretty clear that Yoshi has some abilities we were probably taking for granted.  If you've ever wondered where all those Yoshi's you've sacrificed go... maybe you don't really want to know. Sometimes you need to sacrifice a Yoshi to get to the next level though, and that's what's really important, right? ...Right?
