Run for the money

Playtonic's Banjo-Kazooie successor Yooka-Laylee has hit its final Kickstarter stretch goal, unlocking free-of-charge DLC for those who backed the project.

Yooka-Laylee's original target was a modest £175,000, but it quickly smashed through that goal and has been collecting cash at an impressive rate ever since.

In case you didn't know, Playtonic is a studio made up of former Rare staffers - hence the intense interest from gamers the world over. The game is confirmed as coming to Wii U.

The campaign ends today, and then the hard work on making Yooka-Laylee actually begins. We'll be keeping in touch with Playtonic over the next few months so expect some exclusive content very soon, but in the meantime why not check out our interview with the team from a few weeks ago:
