Yooka-Laylee Gets New Trailer and Release!

Old Rare fans [not saying the fans of Rare are rare] rejoice. The fellows over at Playtonic Games have recently revelled the first proper trailer for their Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor, Yooka-Laylee. The trailer is packed full of platforming goodness. See Yooka roll! Gaze as Laylee takes flight [or glide]! And tremble at the duo’s almighty flower transformation! You can catch all this and more in the trailer below.

Some of you observant lot may realise that the video mentions that the titular duo will be shipping during Q1 2017, which is unfortunately a few months after the initial planned release [October 2016]. However, Playtonic were nice enough to provide a statement of why the game will be delayed. You can view this statement after the break, along with some brand new screenshots and art!

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 am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

    It looks actually really good. Wasn’t expecting that level of polish.

    I rewatched and saw the honeycomb pipe, didn’t see the pig though.
