The Wii U has already launched in the US and is due for release around other parts of the world on November 30th (this Friday), and while the launch line-up of games is plenty exciting and there are a few games to look forward to in the future, we may have just got a clue about another upcoming title that we can get behind.
The online arms of two Canadian retailers, Best Buy and Future Shop, have listed Yoshi’s Land for Wii U on official product pages – pages that were still up and available for browsing at the time of writing. They’re both listed at $59.99 and sport the same temporary box art – here’s the description from Best Buy:
“Take Yoshi on an epic adventure to remember in Yoshi Land for Nintendo Wii U. Check out Yoshi as you’ve never seen him before: in glorious high definition. Enjoy dual-screen control thanks to the Wii U Touchscreen GamePad, while you’ll also be able to experience full integration with Nintendo’s MiiVerse service.”
And here’s one from Future Shop:
“Join everyone’s favourite dinosaur in his first big starring role on Nintendo Wii U – Yoshi’s Land. Utilise the power of the Wii U Touchscreen GamePad to enjoy dual-screen fun in this epic adventure with stunning HD graphics and connectivity with the MiiVerse.”
Adding credence to the existence of Yoshi’s Land was a recent and illicit behind-the-scenes peek at upcoming Wii U content, as revealed by a console user who stumbled into hidden MiiVerse administration menus. The same ‘hack’ revealed titles such as Metal Gear Solid and Resident Evil games.
Although Nintendo representatives stepped in following the discovery to say that those particular MiiVerse menus were for testing purposes only, if Canadian retailers are talking about a game that appeared there we might just be in for some more Wii U game announcements soon.
Would you like to return to Mario’s world with Yoshi? The Nintendo team could probably rustle up a few cool things to do with the Gamepad’s touchscreen and features.
