Playtonic Games has dropped a shiny new trailer for Yooka-Laylee and just in time for E3. The trailer shows off some new moves for the pair, as well as looks at new locations and more, but sadly it ends with the news that the game has slipped from its October release window to Q1 next year, but enough sad news, enjoy the trailer.
“We are really excited to release today the E3 trailer for Yooka-Laylee and confirm our presence in Los Angeles where we will showcase the game for the first time to the media and influencers,” said Gavin Price, Creative Director and MD of Playtonic.While that news is sad, given that the game has come from Kickstarter to something like this in just 12 months gives me hope that a few extra months will be well spent. The game is currently set for Wii U, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
“After a lot of soul searching and knowing through dialogue with our fans that they value quality and polish above all, we’ve made the difficult decision to lock the release of Yooka-Laylee to Q1 2017. While we felt confident we could ship the game in October as originally planned, the team has decided that it would like to add a few extra months’ polish to our schedule. Ultimately, this will allow us to release a better game to the thousands of fans who’ve supported us throughout development.
“We’re sure some will be disappointed by the prospect of a few extra months’ wait, however the Playtonic team is confident that we’ve made the right decision for the game and that you’ll be pleased with the results when the game arrives early next year.”
