Playtonic shared a new Yooka-Laylee video this week that gives fans a taste of what Tribalstack Tropics will be like in the final game as a fully fleshed out world. We’ve posted it below.

Playtonic announced today that Yooka-Laylee will be released on April 11th, 2017 on all previously announced platforms..except Wii U. According to Playtonic, due to “unforeseen technical issues”, a release of the Wii U version was made impossible. However, to make up for that, Playtonic are “working very closely with Nintendo” to bring the game to the Nintendo Switch instead. Further details will be shared “early next year”.

Kickstarter backers who opted to get the Wii U version can instead get the game for any of the other platforms for which the game launches on April 11th, or to the Switch version once further details are announced next year. The wording seems to imply that the Switch version will not launch on April 11th alongside the other versions. Those who backed the Wii U version and want a refund instead of switching to another version are urged by Playtonic to contact them via the Backer messaging system on Kickstarter.

Finally, here’s a new trailer for the game; hopefully we will be able to play this on the Switch soon:


If the Xbox store webpage is anything to go by, it seems that Yooka-Laylee will be released in April.

The page has Yooka-Laylee listed for release on April 11. A Brazilian retailer also posted its own release date of April 7 for physical versions. While this is by no means an official confirmation, one could assume that we’re likely close to an actual official announcement from Playtonic in the near future.

The only slightly concerning thing here is that a physical version of Yooka-Laylee is nowhere to be seen. Missing out on a retail release wouldn’t be entirely surprising given the state of the console, but we’ll have to see what Playtonic and Team17 are planning.

Yooka-Laylee will be more than just a digital download. Today, Playtonic confirmed that its 3D platformer is indeed getting a physical version.

When Yooka-Laylee launches in Q1 2017, fans will be able to purchase either a digital or boxed release. Playtonic is currently working on a way for Kickstarter backers to upgrade digital pledges to the retail version as an option. The team is still working out the kinks, but this should be available soon.
