Sonic: Lost World publisher Sega is planning to release some downloadable content for its Wii U platformer.

Sega is using Nintendo properties as inspiration for these new expansion levels. This includes a stage based on the Yoshi games that features a colorful and yarn-like art style. The new level is called Yoshi’s Island Zone.

The DLC content is out today for free on the Wii U eShop, Nintendo said during its Direct livestream this morning.

Sonic: Lost World is a platform side-scroller exclusive to the Wii U and 3DS. Sega has so far only revealed plans to bring the Yoshi DLC to the Wii U version.
