Shack Reels: Taking on Burt the Bashful in Yoshi's Wooly World

An old foe has returned in Yoshi's Wooly World. Burt the Bashful is back from the original Yoshi's Island, but how much have things changed since that first encounter? Find out in this video.


Yoshi's Wooly World represents an entirely new look for the Yoshi's Island series and Yoshi, in general. But there are still some familiar elements of the old games to be found here and if early gameplay is any indication, that includes the boss battles.

With that said, welcome Burt the Bashful to Yoshi's Wooly World. Long-time players will remember this guy as the very first boss in the original Yoshi's Island. He's here to bounce around the stage, just like in the old days, but there are some twists in this battle and many of them have to do with the game's yarn aesthetic.

Check out the full playthrough of Burt's stage and the fight against the Bashful one himself in the video below. For more, be sure to subscribe to Shacknews on YouTube.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
