While Yooka-Laylee isn’t set to be released until sometime in Q1 2017, the game has quite the following. Developed by former members of the RARE studios, Yooka-Laylee, is being hailed as the spiritual successor to Banjo and Kazooie. From its symbolic character bond to the lush and beautiful landscape and interesting gameplay, the title is shaping up quite nice.
Now there’s another reason to get excited about the game. Once originally a digital only title, Playtonic has announced over at their website that Yooka-Laylee will be receiving a physical copy prior to launch.
With everyone safely back in their office chairs, development progresses unhindered on Yooka-Laylee. As we get closer to launch and our plans take final form, we’re finally able to clarify many of your most burning inquiries and requests. One such query we’re delighted to tackle today is the ever-booming call for a boxed version of Yooka-Laylee. Do we have plans for a boxed release? Today we can confirm that the answer is, yes!
We’re delighted to be able to offer Yooka-Laylee in both digital and boxed flavours in time for the game’s launch in Q1 2017. As we speak, our business badgers are busily burrowing away on an initiative that will allow Kickstarter backers to upgrade their digital pledge to a physical version, if they choose to do so. We’re not ready to share the exact details just yet, but very soon you should be able to stick your head in the badger hole and look for yourself.
Exciting news indeed. I’ll definitely be switching over my digital copy over to a physical edition as soon as we’re given the option.
Yooka-Laylee is slated to be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Wii U, sometime in Q1 2017.
