Yooka-Laylee: 20 Minutes of Nostalgic Platforming Goodness

Yooka-Laylee: 20 Minutes of Nostalgic Platforming Goodness

Dom Peppiatt

Indie developer Playtonic Games is releasing the spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, the equally hyphenated Yooka-Laylee, in April this year. We recently got the chance to get some hands-on with the game and we really, really enjoyed what we saw.

If you prefer your previews in a less verbal and more written capacity, you can check out our extensive preview here. Bear in mind that we titled this preview 'Yooka-Laylee is the kick up the arse the 3D platform genre needs, so that should give you an indication of how we felt about it.

If you'd prefer to see some of the game in action, you can check out our Let's Play below:

Yooka-Laylee is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on 11th April 2017, with a Nintendo Switch version to follow.
