Yooka-Laylee was successfully funded through Kickstarter in the spring of 2015. Now, it’s set to launch on April 11, 2017, for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. It’s due for the Nintendo Switch, too, though that launch date hasn’t been announced.
As we near the game’s release, we have a new, lengthy gameplay trailer from IGN. It features the Capital Cashino world, and it looks pretty cool.
This is basically Banjo-Kazooie, isn’t it?
Everything about the gameplay video above for Yooka-Laylee makes it look and sound like the newest Banjo-Kazooie game. That’s even tru for some of the sound effects, especially for the bat named Laylee. Heck, some of Laylee’s sound effects sound like slightly altered noises made by Kazooie.
Then there’s the collecting that looks like it’s straight out of a Banjo game. Oh, and the tunes. The music comes from Grant Kirkhope, the composer behind Banjo, and it sounds like Kirkhope made the distinct choice to retain the same aural feel here.
We might never get a true Banjo-Kazooie sequel, but it looks like Playtonic is ready to deliver a worthy successor with Yooka-Laylee.
