A new report on IGN unveils brand new details about Project Project Ukulele, which is now known as Yooka-Laylee.

Yooka-Laylee’s lead characters are named Yooka and Laylee. Yooka is the chameleon while Laylee is the bat. Thanks to his tongue, Yooka can use it as a grappling hook. Laylee, meanwhile, can pick up Yooka and fly for a short period of time or unleash a sonar blast. Both characters were designed by Steve Mayles, who designs Banjo and Kazooie and the modern Kong family while at Rare.

Yooka-Laylee’s Kickstarter will launch on May 1. Fans who back the project for £10 / $15 will be able to obtain a copy. Extras include soundtracks, art books, and a special “64-bit”. There are plans to bring Yooka-Laylee to Wii U, but its release timing will depend on the success of the Kickstarter campaign and its stretch goals.
