Playtonic has opted to use the Gamescom conference as a means to show off all the work that it's done on Yooka-Laylee so far, and it looks like things are coming along quite well. We already got a new trailer, showcasing some polished environments and new transformations, and the game appears set to hit its release window of Q1 2017.

Our friends over at Eurogamer got a chance to sit down and play through an extended demo of the game that will be made available at Gamescom. We get to see a few NPCs, such as Molly Cool the molecule and Kartos, the God of Ore, along with an in-depth look at what the environments are like. It all looks excellent, and we can't wait to see what the final product will be like.
