Best Buy and Future Shop list unannounced Wii U game, Yoshi's Land
It's been a few years since Nintendo has placed the saddle-backed Yoshi in the limelight, but if this is any indication, it may not be much longer before fans can get their kick once more.
A listing for a Wii U game titled Yoshi's Land has appeared on retailer Best Buy's website, as well as the website for the retailer's sibling company Future Shop. This is the second time that Yoshi's Land has shown up, following a Wii U user's accidental discovery last week of a Miiverse “mock-up menu” where the game was listed among other unannounced titles (more on that here).
The Best Buy listing for Yoshi's Land describes the game as so: "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."
It's worth pointing out that that's not Nintendo-written, that description (after all, Nintendo never capitalizes the 'V' in 'Miiverse'), so it's impossible to know for certain if Best Buy actually does know of the game's existence or is merely listing the title following the Miiverse menu fiasco last week. Nothing is certain until the Big N comes along and speaks on the matter.
Let us know whether you think Yoshi has a good chance of starring in his own Wii U adventure in the comment box below.
