[UPDATE: When we originally ran with this story the amiibo was only confirmed for Europe. Nintendo of America has since tweeted an announcement confirming that North America will get the mega Yoshi as well on November 15.]

Nintendo’s not done trying to get you to buy amiibo just yet. Nintendo of Europe just sent out a tweet showcasing a Mega Yarn Yoshi. No it’s not a Mega Man and Yoshi cross-over, but rather a jumbo-sized Yarn Yoshi amiibo. The amiibo is debuting on November 27 and will retail for $39.99.

The huge plush Yoshi is definitely adorable, but it’s also functional as well. It’ll activate the Double Yoshi to use in any stage of Yoshi’s Woolly World and remember, there are more than 45 different costumes for you to collect in the game.

No news from Nintendo of America concerning whether the Mega Yoshi will appear in the States just yet, but we’ll keep you updated.
