With the announcement of the sequel I've just picked this up to try 100% it (which I know will never happen) and I noticed the googly eyes baddies again. I love the geniuses of the googly eyes baddies, it was such a trademark of the team to feature them back in the day so works like a weird inverted Easter egg which you have to smack.

I'm not going to call it a "reimagining", "fresh experience" or the other buzzwords they used as that's ridiculously pretentious

Downgrade, it's a downgrade. I mean, I might pick it up if it's good, but I can't express enough that I'm disappointed they went with a 2D platformer instead of building on the foundation of the previous game. Even if it turns out to be a stop-gap to fund the next 3D game, I find very little reason to be excited for it.

The whole "not a sequel" thing is just silly marketing-speak. I think they're just putting it out there because they know that there are some gamers who are just ridiculous about things like "canon" and such. Of course it's a sequel - it's the next Yooka-Laylee game. Whether or not it directly follows the story from the first game is irrelevant, and the change in game design doesn't make a difference.

@Spoony_Tech
I know nothing about that game nor any of the No More Heroes/Suda51 stuff, so can't answer that question.

But to use an analogy that i am familiar with, isn't Super Mario World a sequel to Super Mario 3? Isn't Super Mario 64 a sequel to Super Mario World? Isn't Ocarina of Time a sequel to Link to the Past?

I think it's pretty clear that Playtonic's point is just that the new game won't be a "storyline" sequel.

@the_shpydar It being a sequel would imply that it's the direction they want to take the series in going forward despite it being a major departure from the previous game. They aren't worried about "canon," people are worried about the possibility that they're no longer interested in making 3D platformers.

@CanisWolfred
Yeah, i get that. Perhaps the "not a sequel" marketing-speak is more to that point then; that they want to make sure people know that they'll still be developing a 3D platformer.

But regardless, it's still a sequel.

Or a spin-off. That's a thing, you know.

True. But i don't think a game where you play as the same characters, doing the same basic moves, fighting the same type of enemies, in the same type of environments would be a spin-off.

Though perhaps we're just getting hung up on terminology. It reminds me of how Hollywood is constantly interchangeably and incorrectly using the terms "reboot", "remake", "revival" and "reimagining" these days.
