Some of you may have heard of this game. It's a 3D game platformer, Banjo-Kazooie game successor currently being developed by ex-Rare employees under their new company, Playtonic Games. Grant Kirkhope is also among the ex-Rare staff and composers for this game. It first appeared in a few teasers then it revealed itself as a KickStarter project, where the game reached its crowdfunding goal within 38 minutes after its opening on May 1, 2015.

Yooka-Laylee is set to be released on the Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4.

Backed it up one hour in when I didn't even have a WiiU for the console version. Thankfully I do now otherwise I'd be stuck with a useless game code I spent 35 dollars on... But hey,supported my second favorite dev team,would've been worth it even then.

New details from a user who got an Edge magazine on the Playtonic forums~

Summary:

Begin in large hub area aboard a pirate ship that has become Yooka and Laylee's adopted home. It has 'Bat Ship Crazy' painted across it.

Butterflies: Eat with Yooka's tongue for health, or collect to refill your power meter. Yooka's roll uses up the power meter... i.e. you can't roll forever like with Kazooie's Talon Trot.

200 quills are scattered across the world, spread across race circuits and along minecart tracks etc.

'Tokens' (Playtonic Coins?) unlock 8 multiplayer arcade games. Once unlocked they can be accessed from main menu and support up to 4 players.

Play Tonics must be earned by achievement-style challenges (e.g. kill 100 baddies); They are optional, so apparently not integral to completing the game. One reduces the power consumption of Yooka's roll, another lets you collect distant quills with Yooka's tongue etc.

Ghost Writers: they all behave differently. One hides, one attacks you, one needs to be chased and caught etc.

Unlocking a world gives you a free move from Trowzer; you can also buy additional moves via quills.

Tribalstack Tropics
(Jungle opening area: I'm unsure if this is the hub area with the pirate ship; the article was a tiny bit unclear)

Transformation is a plant that lets you speak to flora that otherwise ignore you.

Spitting a 'Splash Berry' at a rain cloud creates a waterfall that fills the riverbed below, thus opening new areas. Spitting a 'Frost Berry' will freeze the river and create a racecourse across the ice.

Laylee's sonar blast move triggers invisible platforms to reach to areas.


Also, new images from the Edge magazine -

And new character details on Dr. Puzz and Dr. Quack -


[Image: fc179f34ade613be20beb5ff4591c580_origina...f30efee60d]

"In Yooka-Laylee, Dr. Quack is a ruthless, exosuit-wearing fowl, who’s making the best of a bad situation under the corporate rule of Capital B. The good doctor wasn’t always this unpleasant, but the ruthless takeover of his Quack Corp organisation has persuaded Quack to concoct all manner of crude inventions to satisfy the demands of his new boss – and the shareholders, of course."

[Image: 6cba3ed3b9d423f74afc899fa685e70c_origina...ee5cd01264]

"Quack’s sweet, naive prodigy, Dr. Puzz proved far more morally rigid than her former colleague, breaking ties with Quack Corp as soon as the exosuits started stirring – and taking her own inventions with her. The tentacled technician – designed by Ed ‘Mumbo Jumbo’ Bryan – is the gateway to all of Yooka-Laylee’s wild and wonderful transformations, which we’ll be revealing in the near future."

Can't wait for this game. Getting the Wii U version. Hope there's a physical version, because I can't get any eShop credit.

Their reason for the delay - http://www.playtonicgames.com/yooka-layl...se-update/


Playtonic Games Wrote:While we felt confident we could ship the game in October as originally projected in our Kickstarter, the Playtonic team has decided that it would prefer to add a few extra months’ polish to the game schedule.

Ultimately, this will allow us to deliver a better game to the tens-of-thousands of you who’ve supported us throughout development. And that’s what we all want, right?

We’re sure some will be disappointed by the prospect of a few extra months’ wait, however the team is confident that we’ve made the right decision for the game and that you’ll be pleased with the results when Yooka-Laylee arrives early next year.

I just CAN'T WAIT to play this game!!! The latest trailer for E3 put the biggest grin on my face. Grant Kirkthorpe's music is absolutely perfect! And the little quip at the end between the characters was adorable and hilarious!

Totally gonna be worth the wait - this is a team I trust!

Well, he made that bed, now he has to lay on it. Unfortunate since he could've done this last year and I doubt anyone would care by release.

How much changes in a year though; their lack of response about the refunds(when Bloodstained started talking requests the same day they announced the WiiU version was out) and the meh look of the levels really soured me on the game. When Jontron was announced I couldn't wait.

You had your chance to get a refund when the backer kit surveys went out a couple of months ago.

I assume Graupel DID do the backer kits but Playtonic has yet to respond.
