Amazon has posted the boxart for Yoku’s Island Express, which will indeed have a physical release. We’ve attached it above. You can now pre-order Yoku’s Island Express on both Amazon and GameStop.

We should also mention that Overcooked: Special Edition, another game published by Team17, opened pre-orders this week on Amazon as well. It’s possible to reserve it here.

The Escapists 2 finally has a release date on Switch. Today, Team17 announced that the game is hitting the eShop on January 11 for $19.99 / £19.99 / €19.99. It will be up for pre-load on January 4.

The Escapists 2 will let you play with a friend via a local two player split screen mode, where you can use either a Joy-Con or Pro Controller to escape from jail with a friend.

We have more information and a Switch trailer for The Escapists 2 below.

Yooka-Laylee Switch tech analysis

Posted on 3 months ago by (@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos | 7 Comments | 0 Likes

Yooka-Laylee finally launches on Switch today. How does it stack up from a technical standpoint? Digital Foundry examines that very question in a new video today.

First, Yooka-Laylee runs at 900p when in docked mode. Portal mode pulls back the resolution to 600p. Digital Foundry ultimately says that this is a good compromise.

Team17 released a new trailer for Yoku’s Island Express just in time for the holidays. It shows off some of the snowy surroundings Yoku will uncover and the islanders he’ll meet, including Tungaska, Chirp the foreman and Tilo the mountaineer.

Nintendo Life put a video together showing how the new Switch version of Yooka-Laylee stacks up to the Xbox One edition. Check out the comparison below.

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.

IGN has posted a video showcasing some of the first-direct feed footage from the new Switch version of Yooka-Laylee. Watch 28 minutes of gameplay below.


Yooka-Laylee will finally end up on Switch next week. And over in Europe, the game’s price point has been confirmed. The 3D platformer will cost €39.99 / £34.99, which should be $39.99.

Yooka-Laylee currently goes for the same amount on other digital marketplaces. The only tricky thing here is that physical copies on the likes of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One cost much less. As we know though, Yooka-Laylee has no physical version on Switch – at least for now.


A live stream was hosted for Yoku’s Island Express yesterday, and a brand new area was shown. Viewers were shown Mokumana Island, the home of Yoku and Yoku’s Island. Check out the full recording below.

A new update has gone live for Overcooked: Special Edition. Switch players now have access to version 1.1.0.

The developers behind Overcooked have said that the update addresses a bug with the controls and 8-way movement. We’re unsure if the patch encompasses anything else. If any other news comes in, we’ll keep you updated.
