The creative veterans behind Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country, under the developer Rare, have come together to form brand new developer, Playtonic Games. You might have heard about their first project previously known as Project Ukelele, which has now been unveiled as Yooka-Laylee! (Sound familiar?) You can check out gameplay footage of the new bright, colourful 3D platformer featuring Yooka the Chameleon, and Laylee the Bat– who have specific skills to help you get through the levels. Yooka can use his chameleon tongue as a grapple hook, and Laylee can briefly carry Yooka and fly or unleash sonar blasts. They look like a great, adorable team!
Do you like the look of this game? You can help make it happen when they launch their Kickstarter tomorrow! All backers can receive a copy of the game when it’s finished for £10/$15, and they’re planning further extras like soundtracks, art-books and even a special ’64-bit’ version, so you feel like you could actually be playing the Nintendo 64. If it reaches its goal, it’ll be releasing on Windows, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U at various times depending on the fundraising. This already looks really promising, and will be one to keep an eye out for!
