IGN has posted footage of Yooka-Laylee’s Kartos Karting, one of the 3D platformer’s various multiplayer games. View the video below.

Villa Gorilla has announced Yoku’s Island Express, “an open world/metroidvania-style pinball adventure”. The game is planned for Switch and other platforms.

Yoku’s Island Express kicks off as Yoku the dung beetle arrives on the beach of Mokumana Island as the new postman. However, the ancient island God is trapped in a restless sleep and the islanders are being forced to deal with quakes and storms brought forth by its nightmares. In the game, which mixes platform navigation with pinball mechanics across a large open world, you’ll “soar through the air, vacuum explosive snails, fight a Screetch, feed starving lemurs, discover the mystery of the Fruit Altar, wake an old god, and hopefully help tiny Yoku rebuild the island post-office.”

Here’s a rundown of features:

– Genre combining open world pinballing
– Unique beautifully handpainted artwork
– An island filled with unique creatures, both big and small
– Action-packed nonlinear gameplay that awards exploration

You can watch a trailer for Yoku’s Island Express below. The project is quite far off as it won’t be ready until Winter 2017 / 2018.

Wayward Souls started out as a mobile game, but it’s now starting to reach new platforms such as PC. A Switch version may also be a possibility in the future.

When asked about Wayward Souls coming to Switch on Facebook, RocketCat Games responded that the team is unsure if it will happen. However, they are “looking into it”.

If you haven’t heard about Wayward Souls in the past, we’ve included a brief overview and trailer below.

“Wayward Souls is an action-adventure dungeon crawler with randomized levels and permanent death. It features quick, twitch-based combat where tactics, positioning, and timing matter, controlled through touchscreen gestures. Two years in the making, it’s designed for quick playthroughs and lots of replay value.”

This week, City Connection announced a sequel to the arcade and Game Boy puzzle game Soldam. It’s planned for release on the Japanese eShop for Switch’s launch, but it will be published in the west as well under the name “Soldam 2”. Confirmation about the North American and European version was posted on the official Twitter account today.

There’s no word at the moment about any sort of release date sadly. Details will be announced “later” for western territories.

Ultimate Chicken Horse is coming to consoles, including Switch. Clever Endeavour Games shared the news with Eurogamer today.

Categorized as a party platformer, Ultimate Chicken Horse is a game “where you build the level as you play, taking turns placing traps and hazards and trying to screw your friends out of a win.” There are a bunch of blocks to use, customizable game modes, and more.

Originally, Ultimate Chicken Horse debuted on PC last year. This new version of the game contains a Free Play mode in which players can make their own levels from scratch rather than simply place objects into existing terrain.

Ultimate Chicken Horse doesn’t have a release date on Switch yet, but it’s targeted for this summer. A trailer for the game is below.
