Originally, platformer Yooka-Laylee was scheduled to come to the Nintendo Wii U. Thanks to technical issues, that’ll never happen. The game is still planned for the Nintendo Switch.
The title’s developer, Playtonic Games, confirmed months ago that the game is the spiritual successor to the Banjo-Kazooie franchise, which makes sense. Lots of the development teamed worked at Microsoft’s Rare studio back when it was turning out much-loved games for the Nintendo Switch. Expect lots of platforming and a multiplayer experience.
Its launch date for the Nintendo Switch is unknown. Yooka-Laylee will arrive for all other platforms on April 11th.
