Yooka-Laylee to Make it's Public Unveiling at E3 2016

Today Playtonic Games unveiled the E3 trailer for their ming 3D platforming adventure Yooka-Laylee and revealed it will showcase the game for the first time at E3 2016, from 14th to 16th June in Los Angeles during the ’really big show’.  

We know that there is a lot of excitement for the game as it has been labelled the ’spiritual successor’ to Banjo & Kazoo, a plaform game loved by so many.  Yooka-Laylee stars the charismatic new buddy duo Yooka and Laylee, who use an arsenal of special moves to explore – and expand – gorgeous 3D worlds filled with collectibles to discover, secrets to unlock and a cast of quirky characters to meet (or defeat). 

Now for a bit of bad news, Playtonic also announced today that Yooka-Laylee now has a firm release window of Q1 2017. Many were hoping for a 2016 release, and this news may disappoint some.  That being said, here is what Playtonic Games had so say to all those looking forward to the game:

“After a lot of soul searching and knowing through dialogue with our fans that they value quality and polish above all, we’ve made the difficult decision to lock the release of Yooka-Laylee to Q1 2017. While we felt confident we could ship the game in October as originally planned, the team has decided that it would like to add a few extra months’ polish to our schedule. Ultimately, this will allow us to release a better game to the thousands of fans who’ve supported us throughout development.

“We’re sure some will be disappointed by the prospect of a few extra months’ wait, however the Playtonic team is confident that we’ve made the right decision for the game and that you’ll be pleased with the results when the game arrives early next year.”

We here at XBA are a bit disappointed to, given the fact there are a few of us on the team here that are really looking forward to the game; however, it seems like this was a tough decistion for the dev-team and that the time will be used to make the game even better, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
