Yooka-Laylee Officially Announced - NewsSalvatore Fidanza , posted on 30 April 2015 / 3,556 Views
Playtonic Games today announced its first game: Yooka-Laylee. As a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, in Yooka-Laylee you play as two characters - Yooka the chameleon and Laylee the bat - designed by Steve Mayles (who also created Banjo, Kazooie, and the modern Kong family).
In fashion similar to Banjo-Kazooie, Yooka uses his tongue like a grappling hook, while Laylee can pick up his partner and fly for a short period of time and can unleash a sonar blast.
A Kickstarter to fund the game will start tomorrow, May 1st. Backers will be able to pick up the finished copy for £10/$15. There are also plans for extra tiers, which will include bonuses like the soundtrack, art books, and a special '64-bit' special edition.
Yooka-Laylee is planned to release for Windows, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U.
