Yooka-Laylee Officially Announced

Yooka-Laylee Officially Announced - News

by Salvatore Fidanza , posted on 30 April 2015 / 4,421 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.

The game is planned to release on Wii U and PC ONLY right now. Not PS4 and XOne at this time. They're aiming for Wii U mainly.

I'll definitely back it, if and when they get to the stretch goal for PS4 release.

They're adorable. Are you sure they're both boys though? Would seem weird for Banjo-Kazooie descendant to not feature a guy/girl duo.

Yooka looks like a female. But nothing talks about gender of the characters, sadly.

"Yooka uses his tongue like a grappling hook, while Laylee can pick up his partner" Anyway, both look awesome. This combo can make some great abilities!
