The team over at PlayStation Access have had the opportunity to sit down and discuss the intriguing Yooka-Laylee with the team at Playtonic. There’s some lovely new footage showcased in the thirteen minute video, as well as plenty of questions regarding the game which is deemed as the spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie. The team says that they want to retain what was so great about Banjo Kazooie back in the 90’s, but add a fresh new spin on it, which is really what the fans and backers want. Be sure to give the interview a watch, below.
NintenDaan has got his hands on Fire Emblem Fates which has recently launched in Japan. But, that is not all.

The long-awaited Rodea the Sky Soldier is coming to Europe and the United States in October. To drum up some more interest for the flight based platformer, NIS America has unleashed a brand new trailer. The game, which is developed by none other than Sonic creator Yuji Naka, has been in development for what seems like forever. It started out as a game for the original Wii and 3DS back in 2010 and has since shifted development to the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. If you decide to pre-order the game then you will get the original unreleased Wii version as a bonus.
A talented individual has managed to recreate a small part of the much-loved Super Mario 64 using the cutting edge Unreal Engine 4. As you can see from the video it does look visually impressive, but somehow it loses the charm of the original. The demo was created by YouTube user aryoksini who has remade a number of other titles on his channel. Here’s what he had to say about his latest creation.
Here is Mario running in Unreal Engine 4, all the environment assets were taken from the Unreal marketplace, all the character actions were scripted using blueprints only, all animations were re-created from scratch as well as the PBR ready textures
Thanks, White Eagle

If you are a Sonic fan then you will be relieved to know that the upcoming Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice is set to play more like classic Sonic games than its predecessor. There were a lot of surprised people when we found out just before E3 that Sanzaru were developing a new entry in the Sonic Boom series. However, we’ve been assured at this year’s E3 event that Sanzaru is listening to fan criticism and are trying to make this feel like the classic Sonic games we have had in the past.
- Developer Sanzaru is listening to fan criticism.
- Studied the map layouts of past 2D sonic titles especially Sonic Rush and the Genesis games.
- Controls have also been revamped to feel like Classic Sonic.
- Not necessary to gain collectibles to move forward through the game
- 5 playable characters (Amy now playable)
- Folks at Sanzaru would love to make another Sly Cooper.
