Yooka-Laylee pre-load live on the North American and European Switch eShops

Posted on December 7, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Update (12/7): The pre-load option is now live in North America. Final US pricing is $39.99.


Original (12/6): Yooka-Laylee can now be pre-loaded on the European Switch eShop. In doing so, players can get ready for launch by purchasing the game ahead of time and downloading most of the required data.

You should be able to pre-load Yooka-Laylee in North America tomorrow as well. We expect it’ll be up around 12 PM ET / 9 AM PT, when the eShop normally updates.

    It’s so expensive on Switch :/

      And on PS4 you can get it for just about £11.99 (physical release at Base.com) if you live in UK.

      I’d not mind if the game on the Switch would cost $19.99/€19.99/£19.99 but £34.99 (possibly turns out as €39.99/$39.99)?! Keep it!

        Yeah. This has gone from a first day purchase to a ‘wait for a sale’ for me :/

      • Bust4cap

        same digital price as the other versions

      • I think that €$29.99 would be tolerable but as it is it’s overpriced in my opinion as well.

    I would like pick it up if I want but not for an eSHOP at all. Total space on our Switch hard drive, nah! I prefer physical version. I will wait!

    • Reggie

      Agreed. Really hoping they do a physical release for this.

    It’s a good thing I’m playing Xenoblade 2 right now, cause it would otherwise be a long week to wait for this!

    Should be $29.99 since it’s been available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC for several months now. Hope the fixed all of the gameplay bugs and other issues.
