Nintendo hasn’t said anything one way or another about whether Yoshi’s Land will be coming to the Wii U but it seems that two Canadian retailers may have blown the whistle in this regard in a classic d’oh! moment.
According to Polygon, Best Buy and Future Shop both placed listings for Yoshi’s Land on their websites. The game’s pre-order price was listed as $59.99 and the estimated release date was Dec. 31, 2013 (though this date is likely a placeholder). The description for the game reads as follows:
“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.”
However, this isn’t the first time Yoshi’s Land on Wii U has been hinted at since the console launched. Just last week, a user managed to accidentally hack into a mock-up of the MiiVerse admin system and found a listing for Yoshi’s Land in there.
