Yooka-Laylee is now settled into a variety of platforms, but the release hasn't been without its critics. Playtonic has been keen to address complaints and work towards improvements, however, and has been developing a bumper update to resolve some issues.
In the latest blog post from the studio it's confirmed that the major update is planned for later this month on PC and then consoles, with the positive news that the Switch version will then head into its final development / testing phase after that.
As our first significant game update nears completion, we will soon be entering the Nintendo Switch-specific testing phase. And hopefully, if our test team doesn’t break it too badly, we’ll be in a position to deliver you a final release date shortly after.
We’re also pleased to confirm that all of the important additions and changes contained in our upcoming game update will be included on day one in the Nintendo Switch version of Yooka-Laylee, in addition to the ability to play on the go!
Thanks again for your patience. We’re looking forward to putting Yooka-Laylee for Nintendo Switch in your hands!
It'll be interesting to see how much the update improves Yooka-Laylee, and naturally many are intrigued to see how it'll turn out on the Switch. Is it still on your eShop wishlist?
