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.”

Update: Playtonic now has a post up on Kickstarter about how console backers will soon be able to prepare their final platform choices. We’ve included all of the relevant information after the break.


Original: Yooka-Laylee has gone gold, Playtonic announced today. Work on the game is now finished 21 months after the game’s Kickstarter campaign ended.

Playtonic wrote in a website post:

“We couldn’t have reached this moment without the incredible support of our backers, fans, family and friends across the games industry. Thanks again for your unwavering enthusiasm for our studio. We hope you enjoy Yooka-Laylee when it releases on April 11!”

Playtonic will ship the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions on April 11. However, the Switch release will likely take a bit of extra time.

In other news, former Rare staffer Gary Richards has joined the team. Richards previously was the lead designer on Viva Pinata. He also worked in testing on games including Perfect Dark, Banjo-Tooie and Conker’s Bad Fur Day.

Playtonic announced last month that the Wii U version of Yooka-Laylee is cancelled. In its place, the team is doing everything it can to make a Switch version possible.

Those who are looking to change their backer copy from Wii U to Switch won’t have to wait much longer. On Twitter, Playtonic said that this should be possible by the end of the month. There may potentially be news about a physical version for Switch as well.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

A new Yooka-Laylee trailer came out this week. In it, Playtonic gave fans a look at various mini-games included in its 3D platformer. There is one extra multiplayer element not touched upon in the video though.

Yooka-Laylee actually has a co-op feature. A second player can take control of the Bee Team, and is able to grab quills, collect and store butterflies, stop traps, and more.
