One of the more promising 3D platforms lined up for next year is Yooka-Laylee. The team over at Playtonic have announced a release date for the long-awaited 3D adventure and you’ll be able to get your hands on the title on April 11th. Pre-orders are now available at £34.99 / $39.99 / €39.99 for non-Kickstarter backers in both digital and physical formats from all participating stores worldwide. The team has decided to cancel the Wii U version of the game and is instead developing a Switch release. The team says they’ve encountered unforeseen technical issues that unfortunately mean it will be impossible for them to release the game on Wii U as initially planned. They go on to say that they are now working very closely with Nintendo to look to bring Yooka-Laylee to the upcoming Nintendo Switch. We’re looking forward to exploring the opportunity and will have more details to share early next year.
