Yooka-Laylee was confirmed for Switch many months ago. However, it wasn’t until today that we received a release date for the game. Playtonic will have the game ready for a December 14 launch on the eShop.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Playtonic director Gavin Price commented on the long wait. Price explained that since Switch is a new platform and the team is using a middleware engine, “it adds another link to the change” and they’ve had lots to learn. He did reiterate that Unity and Nintendo, as well as publisher Team17, provided assistance on a technical level.
