On December 14th, Yooka-Laylee will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch. However, if you want to get the game, you will have to do so digitally. Playtonic recently responded to a fan’s question about a physical release of the game. They confirmed that they have “no plans on the table today”. There is hope, though. Playtonic also said that they’d like to look into it “if demand is there”. Here’s what they said in full:
We have no plans on the table today, but we’d like to look into it in the future if demand is there. The priority until now has been getting the game polished and into players’ hands ASAP.
