Yooka-Laylee Gets New Trailer, Release Window

Developer Playtonic has released a brand new trailer for their upcoming adventure-platformer Yooka-Laylee. Along with getting a new look at some gameplay, the trailer also reveals that Yooka-Laylee is set to release in Q1 of 2017.

As detailed on a blog post on their website, Playtonic explains that they have chosen to delay the game by a few months, in order to spend more time fine-tuning and polishing the final product.

“As well as revealing the first gameplay in over a year, this video also confirms that, after long consideration and knowing through dialogue with our fans that they value quality and polish above all, we’ve made the difficult decision to lock the release of Yooka-Laylee to Q1 2017,” Playtonic writes.

“While we felt confident we could ship the game in October as originally projected in our Kickstarter, the Playtonic team has decided that it would prefer to add a few extra months’ polish to the game schedule.”

The latest trailer, which can be seen below, shows off some new transformations and power-ups for both Yooka and Laylee, along with a familiar mine cart sequence.
