Yooka-Laylee, the spiritual successor to the cult class Banjo-Kazooie, is only a little over a month away. Players will soon finally see if their faithful Kickstarter backing was all worth it. This title will hopefully bring us all back to the 3D platforming days of old. What good is making a game with a classic feel without some music to fit the mood.
