A while back, someone claiming to have hacked the Miiverse revealed a listing for Yoshi’s Land Wii U, sparking speculation that our favorite green dinosaur was coming to Nintendo’s HD console. Courtesy of today’s Wii U Direct, we have confirmation of a Yoshi game coming to Wii U, and our first glimpse at the gameplay. Interestingly, the game bears a striking resemblance to Kirby’s Epic Yarn. Hop inside and see for yourself!

      Agreed! Iwata said it was being made by the developers of Epic Yarn though, which was Good-Feel and not HAL, actually.

    I actually think the fabric themed style suits Yoshi better than Kirby.
