Playtonic Games put out a new trailer for their upcoming 3D platformer Yooka-Laylee showcasing the various characters you will encounter in your adventure. Take a look at the trailer below to see what characters you will be seeing in this game when it releases next year.
Did you see that? A full 3D model Shovel Knight, which was completely designed by Yacht Club Games, is making a cameo in Yooka-Laylee. This makes me think that Yacht Club Games is teasing a sequel to Shovel Knight that will use 3D models instead of the 8-bit sprites used in Shovel Knight.
Yooka-Laylee is an upcoming 3D platformer from Playtonic Games, which features many key members from the glory days of Rare when they put out games like the Donkey Kong Country Trilogy, Banjo-Kazooie, Viva Piñata, and Donkey Kong 64, just to name a few.
Yooka-Laylee used the crowdfunding site, Kickstarter, to help fund this project, and I was one of the many gamers that helped fund this project.
Yooka-Laylee is slated for a Q1 2017 release for the PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U platforms.
