on August 24, 2015 10:41 AM

Since debuting last holiday season, Nintendo’s line up of NFC-capable amiibo figurines have become a huge craze among fans, and now the company is preparing to launch its biggest amiibo yet (literally) with a plus-sized Yarn Yoshi, with a plus-sized amount of adorable thrown in.

Nintendo revealed through a press release that the company will release “Mega Yarn Yoshi,” a new mega-sized version of the Yarn Yoshi amiibo that takes the crown as Nintendo’s biggest, and most expensive, amiibo launched to date.

The Mega Yarn Yoshi amiibo will release on November 15th, 2015 for $39.99, making it the largest amiibo the company has produced but still retaining all the functionality of a regular amiibo, by placing its foot near either a Wii U GamePad, New Nintendo 3DS XL, or the amiibo Reader for older 3DS models.

Specifically, the Mega Yarn Yoshi will unlock the “Double Yoshi” character in Yoshi’s Woolly World, an AI in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS, or a new Mii costume in Mario Kart 8.

The Mega Yarn Yoshi amiibo will release on November 15th, 2015 for $39.99.
