Yoshi's Land Wii UAccording to recent retail store listings at Best Buy and Future Shop, Yoshi’s Land for the Wii U is incoming. Not only is the game listed, it’s available for pre-order as well. On top of that, the game description at both retailers looks convincing as well:

“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.”

Best Buy and other retailers usually just copy-paste the PR they are given by publishers, and the above certainly sounds like something Nintendo would write. Yoshi’s Land on Wii U sounds like a very likely proposition, although nothing is confirmed at this point.

Over the past few months Nintendo has hinted that more Wii U games are in development that haven’t been announced, and Yoshi’s Land could very well be one of them.

It’s uncertain when Yoshi’s Land Wii U will be released — Nintendo has a highly anticipated title ready for March 2013: Pikmin 3. It’s unlikely that Nintendo will release Yoshi’s Land during that period. Perhaps Summer 2013 is the best bet. But first, we need official word from Nintendo about the game.

    There was a guy who hacked the miiverse (or there was a glitch in miiverse) and found several unannounced titles. This was one of them. So I guess it was true. So expect a metal gear and donkey kong also!

    • Leeroy


    • Captain Falcon

      MGS Ground Zeroes, possibly? 😉

      • Wildman

         That would be sweet!

      • Nintedward-3DS-WiiU

        Revengance rising with Wii motion plus integration ? It seems that awesome list is coming true , lol! There was resident evil , metal gear , yoshi etc etc.

        It seems the wiiu is going to be greatest console of all time after all. 2 more sleeps and it’s mine. Can’t. stop. watching . Wiiu . Gameplay . vids . 

        • prettypinkpanacea

          Two more sleeps … I hear that Nintedward, I hear that!

      • D2K

         Did they ever confirm what platform that MGS: Ground Zeros video was from?

        • Superstick

          Yes PS3 and 360 🙁

      • Hououin Kyouma


    • TheDetonator

      it was not a hack. it was a debug screen. this guy did nothing.

      • Weraru

         Woops. That’s what I meant. All that was really confusing

    •  Yes, I hope SO much that that list is true.  It would put a lot of my worries about the WiiU to rest for sure.

    • Ugslick

      First off he didnt hack anything, and it wasnt even from the e-shop.
      ANYWAYS the titles he saw seem to be real, when I first saw Yoshi Land got excited, Yoshis Island on GBA being one of my favourite games from that era, but I held myself back because of the nature of the discovery and Nintendos PR (it being a ‘mock up’ debug menu) Now I guess I will let myself get excited for Yoshi Land on Wii U 🙂

      • Weraru

        I’ll edit it. Sorry.

        • Ugslick

          LOOOL no problem 🙂
          Sorry if i came out a bit abrasively.. didnt mean it that way 😛
          Did you see the official unveiling today?

    • Micah MrBrickplosion

      I thought there was going to be a metroid

  • Leeroy


  • jjerker1

    I can’t wait for e3 2013.  That’s gonna be one epic showing i think for everyone major player. so excited right now. my body issssss soooooooo readyyyyy! oh yeah,  uh uh uh uh

    • dylanbob121

      my body is ready.

  • Anthony Lionetti

    Ohhh, I would love a new Yoshi game!! I liked Yoshi’s Island on the DS and GBA!!!

  • PKUltima

    Absolutely loved Yoshi’s Island (Super Mario World 2), Yoshi’s Island DS and Yoshi’s Story. IMO, a new Yoshi game has been LONG overdue.

  • Would be awesome if it was 3D. I haven’t seen Yoshi in a 3D platform game since SM64 DS.

  • Nintedward-3DS-WiiU

    ”Boxart may not be exactly as shown” Really ? You mean the final box art won’t be a white box with Yoshi’s Land written on it ? lol.

    I am going to push my expectation sky high for this and hope for a full 3d yoshi adventure. I would appreciate a 2d game. But imagine a game dedicated to Yoshi in the style of Mario galaxy with Wiiu graphics , etc ?  YES!

    • DarkYoshi

      Super Mario Galaxy has got no more than positive reviews,
      the sequel also did,
      so it’s not suprising if Nintendo wanted to try that again.

    • Ricardo Sampaio

      A 3D game like Croc would be great.

    • Gabriel Tinge


    • dylanbob121

      Well,your wish came true.New yarn yoshi game coming out.

  • Nintendude

    Hmmmm….  A new Yoshi game huh? I’ll be happy to see what it is about.

  • Takarashi282

    So this seems to a sequel to Yoshi’s Island.  Or Yoshi’s Story.

  • Yoshiwhirlwind

    They had me at Yoshi

  • Yoshiwhirlwind

    They had me at Yoshi.

  • Purple3DSXL

    Yoshi is my favorite character, so if this game is really in the making I’m really looking forward to it.  Releasing it in the summer or fall next year would be a smart move.  

  • Martin Kearney

    Yoshi’s Island 2!

  • Give me a sequel to Yoshi’s Island or another Yoshi’s story and ill be good to go 🙂

  • john

    Things are getting pretty awesooooooooooooooooooooooooome!

  • I don’t give a shit about Yoshi, but this was found by that one faggot who hacked the shop. Metroid was too, so MAYBE. JUST MAYBE.

  • A Nintendo standard character game coming for the new Nintendo system – no!

    • SoulSilverZero

      Yoshi’s not THAT standard, he rarely ever gets any games…

  • Michael Wakeman

    OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!! IT HAS STARTED-Nintendo has started the wheels in motion- tthis is finally my dream console.. every first party game coming to one console!!! I loved yoshi’s story but just think about it-yoshi’s story did not sell particuarly well and received mediocre reveiws so if Nintendo is even considering THIS game for revival think of the next games that could come… finally the games that NEVER came to the wii…

    • beerkin

      Namco is making a NSMB?!?! Where did you get this info?

      • Dude, its all over the place. Common knowledge. Just google it.

        • beerkin

          I did. Are you talking about Smash Bros or Super Mario Bros? This is awesome!!

          • I believe they are confused indeed, Namco is working on Super Smash Brothers U, not on NSMBU2014. Looking forward to it.

          • beerkin

            Bummer. I hate to say it but a little outside blood could help reinvigorate the series.

          • Michael Wakeman

            Yeah I accidently put ‘new’ but I meant that the next smash bros. is coming in 2014

          • No problem, we’re all humans mistakes are made. No hard feelings 😉

          • Michael Wakeman

            U now what else is a bummer? They’re actually gonna take out characters from brawl and maybe put a few new ones in, according to Masahiro Sakurai  it will have the same amount of characters as brawl did 🙁

          • Michael Wakeman

            Smash Bros.

      • Night0fCore

        What??! Why is Namco making 2014 NSMB?! Where iz dis “Official” info?!

        • Michael Wakeman

          OH ITS OFFICIAL! They are indeed in the pre-production stages of the next smash bros. which IGN has named as ‘SSB next’. Namco Bandai has also been OFFICIALLY announced as the developer and also OFFICIALLY produced by Masahiro Sakurai. THE INFORMATION IS TRUE AND EVERYWHERE. It will also be developed by project sora.

          • Night0fCore

            Oh yeah, I already know SSB is being done by Namco, etc, I was just confused with the NSMB 

        • Michael Wakeman

          Sorry for the confusion I see what I did. You’re completely right though on mario, I meant to typoe ‘Super Smash Bros. Next’ so sorry for the misconception.

  • Michael Wakeman
  • Michael Jurado

    So many fruits to eat <3

  • Jeebs

    This would probably explain the Yoshi game in the debug menu and Nintendo execs holding fruit in their hands for no reason. e.g. Iwata holding a banana and the American dude holding an apple…

    • beerkin

      Wow. Nice job on seeing the correlation with the fruit.

  • Doopliss4thewin

    This is something cool

  • Genesect4ssb4

    COOL! Excited already! Im SSB43dsFc 3007 8585 6950

  • Daudi Middleton

    Yoshi’s Story was the last Yoshi game to be on a home console right? I can’t remember whether it was or not…

  • Night0fCore

    What this needs to be: A 3D Yoshi’s Land. *Nintengasm*

  • WarioForever

    I have Yoshi’s picture at desktop, so that means I LOVE YOSHI!

  • Michael Wakeman

    OMG OMG! NIntendo will announce it DECEMBER 10!!! The guy who found the glitch says there is also a thing that says ‘big games are coming december 10’ so any connection! YES! they leaked this information to get buzz, wii u sales will be over 500,000 at least by that point and they’ll announce it for the high sales. I guarentee it will come out in 2013!

  • MujuraNoKamen

    This made my day, if this is true (seems highly likely) then i cant wait 🙂

  • Linskarmo

    The more Nintendo games the better!

  • 00EpicGamer00

    god…just imagine all the screaming that’ll be at E3 2013 XD
    this better be a sequel to yoshies story, but if it’s not i’ll still buy it, yoshi is my hero :O

  • controls007

    Yoshi’s Land U Will Be In Stores August 4, 2013

  • controls007

    August 4, 2013 Would Be The Best Release For Yoshi’s Land
