EGX: Yooka-Laylee Trailer Introduces Characters and Special Guest

Everyone over at EGX this year gets to play hands-on with Yooka-Laylee. That should be a fun time as the upcoming platformer is meant to be a spiritual successor to games of yesteryear. Today, those not in attendance can meet some of the main characters, supporting characters, and many others!

The latest trailer introduces us to Yooka and Laylee, two buddies on a mission to save the world’s literature. Capital B and Dr. Quack are the antagonists whose plans will be thwarted by players. Trowzer sports an old school cell phone and Rextro loves video games. There are also a number of inanimate objects that have come to life and help the main characters on their journey (it’s a staple over at Playtonic).

Then, at the end we meet someone we are familiar with, Yacht Club Games‘ very own Shovel Knight. There is currently no word on his role in Yooka-Laylee but hopefully everyone will dig it. In the trailer below, he is mentioned to be an NPC which is as far as it goes.

Take a look at some of the cast and take in the sights and sounds of Nintendo 64 nostalgia.
