Yooka-Laylee Looks Like So Much Fun

The bad news: Yooka-Laylee is delayed to 2017. The good news: It looks wonderful. New trailer above.

Originally pitched last year on Kickstarter as a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, Yooka-Laylee raised over $2 million. The independent studio Playtonic, made up mostly of ex-Rare developers, is making the game.

Wow. Those character noises when they’re talking are insufferable, and I don’t mind the ones in Zelda.

Also, I get that people want 3D platformers to come back (myself included), but Yooka Laylee seems to not have a single original or inventive idea on display in any of the trailers or images I’ve seen thus far. It looks like they haven’t learned anything or come up with new ideas since the N64.
