Retailer Listings Show Yoshi's Land for Wii UOpen the door, get on the floor. Everybody walk the dinosaur!

If you were a SNES owner back in the day, then the brilliant Yoshi’s Island (AKA Super Mario World 2) is probably one of your favourite platform games. Sporting a beautiful crayon aesthetic and subtle use of the Super FX 2 chip, it was a brilliant example of a platformer. Plus it gave Yoshi, the cute little speech-impaired dinosaur a starring role, and who doesn’t love tiny dinosaurs with extendable tongues and wiggly feet?

According to All Games Beta, two Canadian retailers are displaying listings for a Wii U game by the name of Yoshi’s Land:
