In a not so surprisingly announcement, Playtonic recently cancelled the Wii U version of their upcoming game. While a version of Yooka-Laylee for Nintendo’s console was promised in their original Kickstarter, the game is no longer coming to the Wii U. However, they have since elaborated as to why they had to make this difficult decision. On their recently updated FAQ page, the company revealed that they had been working for months to try and get the game to run correctly on the system, but could never get it working quite right. Check out their official statement below.
The Playtonic team wanted to explore every possible avenue before making the very difficult decision to transfer development from the Wii U. Our developers worked tirelessly over many months in attempt to solve our technical issues, but unfortunately it’s not been possible to bring Yooka-Laylee to Wii U as originally planned.
