Most of the world has been enjoying Yoshi’s Woolly World on Wii U all through the summer, but Nintendo held back its North American release date. The game will launch in about two weeks on October 16th in North America, but you can get prepared right now. If you’ve purchased the game on Wii U eShop, you can pre-load it right now. This will download most of the game’s data to your console, so you’ll only need a small update on the 16th to start playing.
