Developer Playtonic Games has released new screenshots for their upcoming title Yooka-Laylee, as well as details about the game’s story.
On their official blog, the developer stated that the screenshots show off the quality that can be expected from the full release. In one of the images we see the Toy Box mode, which will be a standalone release for Kickstarter backers. The mode was originally supposed to be a “web-based single-room plaything” that has become a “much more significant chunk of playable content.” The mode will let players try out Yooka and Laylee’s moves, play with custom-built props, and discover a number of secrets.
Yooka-Laylee will see the game’s heroes facing off against corporate monster Capital B, who is looking to turn the Pagies of the mystical Grand Tomes into profit. The duo will have to snatch up all of the Pagies and stop Capital B. The game will feature a large number of collectables for players to look for, as well as a number of moves to purchase and unlock.
Yooka-Laylee will release sometime in October 2016. The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, Wii U, and Xbox One. More info can be expected in the May 26th issue of Edge Magazine and at this year’s E3.
