During a developer panel at EGX just a few moments ago, a new trailer was shown for Yooka-Laylee. It’s been revealed that Shovel Knight will be joining the game as a special guest character.

Here’s the video:

Playtonic and Team17, who is working with Playtonic on Yooka-Laylee, discussed the idea of featuring a guest character. Playtonic then turned to Yacht Club Games’ Shovel Knight after thinking about how it was a “much-loved game” with a team that “shares the same kinds of values we do as developers and has created something fantastic in the past”. It was also important to include a character that could appear on all platforms.

Shovel Knight’s way of speaking in Yooka-Laylee will be “authentic”. After receiving an explanation and practicing on a Skype call, Yacht Club went through the steps of how Playtonic creates the mumbling voices, and the result was added to the title directly.

Playtonic also indicated that there aren’t any other guest characters in Yooka-Laylee, but the studio is open to the idea.

It’s been known that Playtonic is working with Team17 on Yooka-Laylee. The latter company will publish the game, but it’s now been revealed that they’re also working on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions. That means Playtonic is able to concentrate on Yooka-Laylee for Wii U and PC.

MCV asked Playtonic about why the studio is working on the Wii U version internally over other platforms. In response, writer Andy Robinson said:

We naturally have so many backers who opted for Wii U. Because of the size of the team, we couldn’t take on all the consoles. You can imagine from a developer stand-point, that porting from PC to PS4 and Xbox One is slightly more straightforward than porting to Wii U. I also think it feels right playing it on a Nintendo system to some people. But the other versions will be fantastic as well.

Technical art director Mark Stevenson also noted:

“We wanted to make sure that Wii U gets the right attention. There is a lot of nostalgia around Banjo, Banjo heralds from Rare’s Nintendo’s days, and we are all massive Nintendo fans as well.”
