It's too bad Unity is only on the New 3DS now, I mean, that's what they're using to making the game, so it's prolly not coming to the 3DS.

^ Honestly, I wouldn't have expected it to anyway. But there is the possibility for a release on New 3DS, Unity is fairly easy when porting to other platforms. It actually makes it more likely that it'll have a release on any kind of handheld at all. (because it's even less likely it would ever come to Vita, who owns a Vita lol)

They would just waste money on handheld versions since it would be a watered down version. I feel like they will also go to the system they can make the most money on at the end of the day.

Yep, should be interesting to finally see who the main characters are after like weeks of knowing of the game's existence. Razz

I found concept art!
This was from the EGX Rezzed presentation, but no one ever really payed attention to it.
The reason I posted it, is while four of those characters art is from the EDGE issue, that one with the sword isn't.
I really wonder what they'll do with the sword-wielding guy.

Hm, actually, that character seems to be the only one that's armed or has anything other than just it's body in the picture. I wonder if that could mean it's the playable character, as it would need some way of attack, right?

Playtonic Games wrote:They’re not real human beings, but they are our new heroes. Meet Yooka and Laylee, the buddy duo set to adventure in our aptly named debut project Yooka-Laylee, coming to Kickstarter this Friday!

Dreamed up by character artist Steve ‘don’t call me Steven’ Mayles – the man behind Banjo, Kazooie and the rebooted Donkey Kong family – we think the bat ‘n chameleon (we’ll let you guess their sexes) are our most inventive protagonists yet, and we’ll tell you just why we’ve deemed that over the next 24 hours.

Starting right now IGN has the ‘scoop’ (we’re assured that term is still used) on the first ever Yooka-Laylee gameplay footage and feature details. Head over there for ‘the skinny’ and when you’re done visit our brand new game page to see some beautiful artwork.

Tomorrow we’ll publish loads more Yooka-Laylee media (will there be David Wise and Grant Kirkhope tunes? You bet your pedigree gerbil there will be) alongside an interview with their father, Mr. Steven… sorry, Steve Mayles himself.

And then at 5pm BST on Friday it’s the big one, the launch of our Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter campaign. When we first discussed this project the reaction was immense. You flocked to our shop doors like eager amiibo scalpers, and your mouths were full of requests.

You told us you wanted Yooka-Laylee (or whatever it was called back then) to be the best game it could possibly be. You said you wanted sprawling, gorgeous worlds to explore, tons of smartarse characters to meet and inventive moves to learn… and you wanted to do it all on your gaming platform of choice.

When we launch our Kickstarter in less than 24 hours, you can help us tick all of those boxes and more. Together you can help our team create the game they’ve dreamed of making – and you might pick yourself up some cool swag in the process.
http://www.playtonicgames.com/introducing-yooka-laylee/

IGN wrote:Yooka is the chameleon and Laylee, the bat, and if the dynamic and style seems familiar it’s because they were created by Steve Mayles, the same character artist who designed platforming icons Banjo and Kazooie and the modern Kong family during his time at Rare.

Using their unique abilities, the two characters work together to fight enemies and traverse the world around them. Yooka, being a lizard, uses his tongue like a grappling hook, while Laylee can pick up its partner and fly for a short period of time or unleash a sonar blast. The duo have a variety of moves to draw upon. You can see the characters in action in the news video up above.




Formerly known as Project Ukulele, Yooka-Laylee is the first game from Playtonic Games, a new studio formed by several veterans of acclaimed developer Rare. All footage in the news video above is the product of three month's work. Playtonic is launching a Kickstarter for the project on May 1st, with all backers able to pick up the finished copy for £10/$15. There are also plans include extras like soundtracks, art books, and a special '64-bit' special edition, a callback to the team's N64 pedigree. Full details will be revealed tomorrow.

If funded, Yooka-Laylee will be released on Windows, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U. The exact timing of each version is contingent upon the success of the Kickstarter campaign and its stretch goals.

Not a perfect name but it works!
The characters came a day early!
I like the design of Laylee, not Yooka so much though.
Looking forward to tomorrow!
Grant Kirkhope and David Wise music being revealed.
Can someone rename the topic "Yooka-Laylee".




Promotional Image for the Kickstarter!
The full details of the Kickstarter, as well as Grant Kirkhope (and possibly David Wise) composed music will be released tomorrow.

It looks decent so fair. The coins make me thing 100% will be a pain though and the main characters look good.

Wow this looks a lot better than I thought! Also digging that name, although it is a bit strange. Definitely taking a LOT of inspiration from Banjo-Kazooie, even the name, logo, and characters are pretty much the same. It's basically a new Banjo game, without being a Banjo game.

16,060 backers
£606,473 pledged of £175,000 goal
46 days to go











Our new heroes, Yooka (the green bloke with no pants) and Laylee (the wisecracking lady-bat with the big nose) were conceptualised from the ground up for stellar platforming gameplay, created by the same character artist behind the rebooted Donkey Kong family and legendary N64 heroes Banjo and Kazooie.


Kickstarter Page


The game now has a tentative October 2016 release.


Some music is available on the Kickstarter page.


Donate $8, get your name in the credits, $15, get a free digital copy and your name in the credits.
Some of the goals were instantly reached.





Here is an MCV Interview with Gavin Price, he says he's pitched the idea of Yooka-Laylee amiibo.
