E3 is now practically upon us, while the doors aren’t open on the show floor today marks the beginning of the main press conferences with EA showing us what they have at 2pm EST. It wouldn’t be E3 though if we didn’t have plenty of leaks coming through even now. The latest news is that we might see fan favorite stuffed toy Yarny coming back into our lives and our hearts. This news has come out because Unravel 2 appeared on the ESRB rating board.
This news was spotted by a previous community manager at Polygon, Shaun Mcllroy, who joked about whether this would be something we’d learn more about this afternoon.
Hmmmmm. Something announced later today? pic.twitter.com/7VN4RCJ407

While there’s not too much that we can learn from the ESRB rating we are able to see that this game will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation and Windows PC, most likely through EA’s games distribution service Origin. From the description listed in the rating summary, we can expect the game to be the same as the original Unravel with the player having to guide Yarny, a character made of yarn, through a sidescrolling world avoiding obstacles and using the ability to unravel to drag or lasso objects.

More smoke was added to the fire when a new Twitter account going simply by Matt tweeted an image of what looks like a PlayStation 4 dashboard with Unravel TWO “now playing.” As well as the title we also see an image of a red and new blue Yarny. This image coupled with the references to multiple Yarnys in the Rating Summary might be pointing to the sequel being a co-op adventure. At this time with no other source for this image though it’s still worth taking the news with a grain of salt.
Are you looking forward to seeing Yarny back in a new adventure? Do you think the image of two Yarnys is real? Leave your comments below and be sure to check out the rest of our E3 coverage here.
