In just a few short months, Yooka-Laylee will be available on all the major console platforms, but the wait couldn't feel any longer. The highly anticipated 3D platformer aims to scratch an itch that's been mostly left untouched since the days of the Nintendo 64, and it looks like it'll be quite the adventure. Recently, it was announced that Shovel Knight would be making a cameo appearance, and now an update on Playtonic's website has revealed more good news: there's going to be a physical edition.

Playtonic didn't really have much to say on it aside from the fact that it is happening, and it will be releasing at the same time that the digital version will be. For those of you that pledged on Kickstarter for the digital version and wish for a physical version instead, there'll soon be an option that will allow you to upgrade. Here's what the post had to say:

We're delighted to be able to offer Yooka-Laylee in both digital and boxed flavours in time for the game's launch in Q1 2017. As we speak, our business badgers are busily burrowing away on an initiative that will allow Kickstarter backers to upgrade their digital pledge to a physical version, if they choose to do so. We're not ready to share the exact details just yet, but very soon you should be able to stick your head in the badger hole and look for yourself.
