Shovel Knight Is Coming To Yooka-Laylee

The latest Yooka-Laylee trailer has landed and it features an incredible piece of news. Just like the indie game Runbow, Shovel Knight will crossover into the game. This marks the first major collaboration between Yacht Club Games and Playtonic, two of the most successful Kickstarter based indie developers. What do you think about Shovel Knight appearing in the game? Tell us below.


    1. Theres no need to be hopeful, its definitely going to be good. They have released enough footage and gameplay that we can be sure. Not to mention the guys behind this game are responsible for some of the greatest 3rd party titles of all by time, like The DK Country series, Goldeneye 64, and Banjo Kazooie. ( yes I know DK is a Nintendo IP but rare still developed, and these guys are all vets of those projects.)

      1. We can say that it’s at least decent. But there’s no guarantee that it will be great. The gameplay could be repetitive or the game could be too short. Let’s hope it’s not.

  1. As long as that Wii U logo sticks there I’m happy. Port it to NX, sure, whatever, but don’t take it off Wii U, no matter how long you have to delay it!!

    1. They’re building the Wii U version as the main one and having another company port it to PS4 and Xbox One, so I wouldn’t worry about that.

      They also said they had no plans to put it on NX. That may have changed, but that was their stance the last time they commented on it.

  2. It’ll be nice if they can get Banjo & Kazooie in there. I’d love to Yooka and Laylee’s reactions to meeting their predecessors. Bet Kazooie would call them franchise stealers. Cause, you know, it’s Kazooie.

  3. Hopefully, I know it’s a slim chance, but hopefully if this game does so well, Rare will sell the Banjo-Kazooie franchise! I know Nintendo will be the first Rare thinks of for selling it! COME ON PLEASE LET IT HAPPEN! I’VE BEEN DREAMING OF SEEING THEM IN SUPER SMASH BROS.! AND MARIO KART! AND MARIO PARTY! I want my Banjo & Kazooie back!

  4. This is the closes you are going to get to Banjo Kazooie. And the more I see this game, the more it reminds me of my bird and bird. Im going to love this game.

    1. No! Banjo & Kazooie deserve it more! You remember what Nintendo said about the Smash Ballot’s rules. They said any video game character that has at least been on a Nintendo platform could enter. They’re more famous and well known.

  5. I wonder if the bad guy will have those funny rhymes like Grunty did?

    “Here he is the funn begins my trips and traps let’s see who wins”

    “Banjo I watch you play and cant think of much to say”

    “Tooty says she’s fine with me, if you go home I’ll set her free”

    “Ding Pot Ding pot on the wall, who’s the prettiest of all?”

    “Tooty thinks she is prettier than me, Ill still her looks and ugly she’ll be”

    That jiggy was for me, now harder still the game will be

    You music skills are mighty fine now take this golden piece of mines

    Grunty ‘s fate this cannot be, hury Klungo rescue me

    Get this wrong for Grunty’s sake and a lava bath you will take

    Hear the crowd they boo and hiss to see you fail they will not miss.

    Now hurry up and make your choice which character has these dumb voice?

    That was a secret how did you know? Did my sister tell you so?

    It’s not fair I wanted to win oh how much to be real thin. You go on and take the prize on show while up the winning stairs i go.

  6. I can’t believe you went in there, now wash your hands you filthy bear.

    You landed here now let us see how much you know of little old me

    Banjo Kazooie was the game in the past hopfully Yooka Laylee will show up on Smash.

  7. Thats right you swim under there icy

    Hurry Klung press that switch, Im tired of being an ugly old witch.

    See my picture over there? It takes a lot of jiggyd to open up my liar.

    Thats what you think you ugly old pot, see these filty clothes I got? you soon be washing a lot.

    Here he is the bear who stands through all my trips, traps worlds and lands

  8. Thats right swim under there, icy water takes up double air.

    Cheato you better learn, give them a cheat you shall Cheato Burn.

    Banjo you played with him through the game, can you think of the dumb thing’s name?

    Banjo Kazooie I saw you play how many treasure chest in Treasure Trove did you open up and lay?

    Tooty says she’s fine with me, if you go home I’ll set her free.

    The Rhymes in Banjo was rather neat, I will scream for joy if its in Yooka-Laylee back and complete.

  9. Banjo Kazooie is rather neat, anyone who hasnt played it, is a straight out freak.

    In Banjo Kazooie the rules were by Bottles the Mole, in Yooka-Laylee I have yet known.

    Who is this girl who uses Magic simular to Mumble Jumble oh how fantastic.

  10. Cool. Tbh I’ve been wanting the next Shovel Knight game to either be Super Shovel Knight and be more like an enhanced Super Nintendo game or Shovel Knight 64 and look a bit like this mixed with Ocarina of Time type mechanics. I still hope they eventually do both of those but for now seeing him in Yooka-Layle will be cool enough.

  11. “Yo, Yo Yo, Hoho, Yo Yo …”

    I love that they totally could have fully voiced all the characters, but chose not to anyway. While sliiiightly obnoxious, as long as most of the jabber conversations don’t go on too long, I think it adds just the right amount if charming stupidity to an already absurd world.

  12. Yooka-Laylee looks rather nice, I wonder whats he eats like chicken or rice?

    I cant wait to this comes out to play this game, but the thought of it on Xbox One oh how lame.

    Banjo Kazooie died when they left, to see the Bear and bird back with Nintendo now thats best

    Banjo-Kazooie has a house in the woods, to see Yooka-Laylee’s house somewhere would be best understood.

    The Graphics on Yooka-Laylee looks rather dope, i wonder if the character like Banjo climbs ropes.

    Dont fight and scratch my little bear, you’ll soon need bigger underwear.

    Banjo-Kazooie never gave up, I know Yooka-Laylee is up for next cup.l

    Dr. TRE he makes videos all day, and lately his videos has been a big fail a big delay.

    I wonder what Blackbon thinks of Dr. Tre,he said nothing else lately he had nothing to say.

    When the NX is finally unveiled, I hope Pikmin 4 is like Pikmin 2 so fun and so thrilled.

    Its time for bed and goodnight I just said
    Tomorrow i hope new info comes out about NX instead

  13. This title will be amazing! as a huge fan of the banjo kazooie Games nuts and bolts doesn’t exist but the first two games were and still are awesome so this game will restore the love for the people that still love those games

  14. Guess I’m the only non fan of shovel knight and bothered by his inclusion in Yooka-Laylee and sees this as a cheap way to get more people to play their game. Shovel knight isn’t a classic game and I hate his character model.
