While it looks like April will be barren for Wii U titles, Nintendo is set to launch two brand new games in the months following. We’ve known for awhile that Splatoon was coming in May and that Yoshi’s Woolly World was coming sometime in the first half of the year, but now a since removed listing on the official Nintendo of Europe website may have revealed just when we will be able to get our hands on those games.
According to a screen capture that was provided by Nintendo World Report of when the listing was up, Splatoon is set to arrive for the Wii U in Europe on May 29, while Yoshi’s Woolly World will arrive a little less than a month later on June 26.
The Splatoon release date would fit in perfectly at the tail end of May, similar to how Mario Kart 8 launched just last year. The Yoshi’s Woolly World date is interesting and does make a lot of sense, as it would fit right at the end of the first half of the year. However, that same date has also popped up on sites for both Western releases for Xenoblade Chronicles X and Legend of Zelda Wii U, which we know definitely aren’t happening.
The fact this comes from the official Nintendo of Europe website adds a lot more credence to the dates, but they definitely are still far from confirmed until Nintendo officially reveals the information. These would also be dates for Europe only as well, but Nintendo seems to be going more for the worldwide releases if possible, so it likely would be comparable in the US due to both being on Fridays. Hopefully the long awaited next Nintendo Direct will swoop in soon and answer these questions once and for all.
