Old-school 3D platformers are in dire need in the gaming landscape of today, but Yooka-Laylee is set to change that, and we now have an idea of when the exciting new project from the ex-Rare staffers is arriving.
According to a new Xbox store page, Yooka-Laylee will launch on 11 April 2017.
The game is available for pre-order £34.99 (around R600), which gives you access to the game’s Toybox demo, which was previously available to original Kickstarter backers.
Beginning as a pie-in-the-sky Kickstarter project, Yooka-Laylee garnered some serious attention from gamers who managed to provide more than enough funding for the game. With some quality pedigree in the development team (with some members being a part of the original Banjo-Kazooie studio, Rare), Yooka-Laylee is looking to be a love-letter to long-time gamers and to remind the new generation of the colourful jumping days of yesteryear.
