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!

Meet Yooka and Laylee in Yooka-Laylee!

Those of you who have been following the ex-Rare employees and their newly found company, Playtonic Game, may have heard of a little project called Project Ukulele. Gamers rejoice, as the wonderfully British team have just revealed the main characters you will be controlling as well as the name of the game you will hopefully be playing (thanks to some ‘non-violent motivation’ from us).

Project Ukulele will now be referred to as Yooka and Laylee, and the game will be called… well… Yooka-Laylee. Yooka is a chameleon who can use its tongue to hang from various obstacles and probably reach items that are a bit to far for normal reach. Yooka will also be carrying along Laylee, the bat. Laylee is able to pick up Yooka and fly for a short period of time across chasms and can also emit a sonar blast. It is promised that there will be several other abilities the characters can perform together as a duo.

The Kickstarter will be launched tomorrow (May 1st) and the game is planned to be released on Mac, PC, Linux, Wii U, Xbox One and PS4, when each version will be released will all depend on the success of the crowd-funder, though seeing how known the developers are and how many vocal fans there are (myself included), I don’t see there being much problem for Playtonic to reach those targets.

Players who have £10/$15 to spare can reserve themselves a final copy if they pledge on Kickstarter. It has also been hinted that there will be other rewards, such as soundtracks, art books and a ’64-Bit’ special edition when the Kickstarter goes live!

What do you think of the characters? Will you be pledging? Tell us in the comments below!

LoboCast Episode 4 Is Now Live!

For those of you who haven’t heard, LoboCast is a series of Podcasts created by the wonderful people from LeftHanded Games, who are currently responsible for the upcoming 3D platformer Lobodestroyo, which will be releasing on the Nintendo Wii U… as well as some other consoles including the Ouya and PC/Mac. Check out the first episode here!

Episode 4 features a special guest star, the holy overlord of the StartSelect Network [the site which hosts the LoboCast], Adam Jones, where we find out that maybe it really is about who you know! The gang also goes down nostalgia lane discussing some IPs which they think deserve an overdue reboot or sequel, such as F-Zero and Viewful Joe! Finally, the Better Know A Backer segment returns, last week their victim was your’s truly [ME!] where I was apparently a British George Takei, and this week they prey on the unsuspecting Photon, with a very inaccurate accent [unless he actually is a Snake Oil Salesman who thinks he is a Japanese schoolgirl]! Remember, this segment is all for fun, nothing serious… heck I nearly pissed myself this week!

Like the last episode, the game is family friendly, the podcast… not so much! Enjoy!
