Playtonic wants physical version of Yooka-Laylee on Switch, currently beyond Kickstarter scope
Posted on February 2, 2017 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
As of now, Yooka-Laylee will be an eShop-only title on Switch. That doesn’t mean Playtonic is interested in a physical version, however.
In a Kickstarter FAQ on its website, Playtonic again says that “the Kickstarter Switch version will be delivered to backers via digital game codes and thus no additional upgrade cost is required.” The notice then goes on to state:
“For Kickstarter, unfortunately physical Switch editions are beyond our scope right now, as we anticipate the difference in costs compared to digital formats would result in further expense to backers which we’re unable to accurately determine at this point in time. If circumstances change, we’ll update you ASAP as we 100% would love to do a Physical Release on Switch.”
Playtonic says the team is “working as hard and fast as we can and are looking forward to giving you the answers you’re looking for on many topics including release timing” on Switch. The studio also thanked Nintendo fans “for their continued patience and understanding.”
