It's rather hard to believe, but Yooka-Laylee is only a couple weeks away from its grand debut. The Kickstarter project aims to bring the dream of the collect-a-thon platformer back to the forefront, and based on all that's been revealed so far, it seems that Playtonic has done an excellent job of creating a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie. Of course, such a game is right at home on the Nintendo Switch, though release details have been hard to come by.
Playtonic's Andy Robinson recently sat down with Game Reactor to discuss the process of developing Yooka-Laylee while also forming Playtonic along the way, and the Switch naturally came up in the discussion. Robinson was tight-lipped on details, though he was keen to mention that the team is working to get it out as soon as possible:
It's a bit too early to go into specifics with this version, but rest assured we're working directly with Nintendo to get it out as soon as possible for our many fans and Kickstarter backers on that platform. We're big Nintendo fans here, so it's very exciting to be working on Nintendo Switch.
Nonetheless, it seems like it may be a bit of a wait before we get the chance to play this on the go. Perhaps a summer release is on the cards?
What do you think? How long will Yooka-Laylee take to arrive on Switch? Will you be getting it for other platforms instead? Drop us a comment in the section below.
