Happy Birthday to Yoo

Surprise! Remember us?

Yes, hands up, we’ve been a bit quiet for a while. But we promise it’s because we’ve been far too busy working on covert goodness, and not because we’ve been down the pub for 4 months. Soon we'll start talking more actively, both about extra content for Yooka-Laylee, plus… other stuff. Shhh!

But in the meantime, it’s Yooka-Laylee’s Birthday! Huzzah!

The journey up to now has been a proverbial minecart ride of surprises, and we wish we could reach out and give each and every one of our supporters a big snog. But since we can’t physically caress all of you, you’ll have to make do with a competition.

To celebrate Yooka-Laylee’s first birthday, we’ve got a very special giveaway for you offering the chance to win one of five ultra-exclusive character parade posters, signed by the entire Playtonic dev team!

Frame not included.

These posters were originally given only to the ladies and gents who worked on the game. However, the good news is that we’ve managed to convince the team to keep them off eBay long enough to hold this giveaway.

Want a chance to win an exclusive Yooka-Laylee Character Parade Poster? Head over to our Twitter page for details!

Thanks again for your splendid support over the past year. There’s lots of exciting stuff going on behind the scenes that we hope you look forward to. Cheers!

Merry Christmas from Playtonic!

Yooka-Laylee will release for Nintendo Switch on Thursday, December 14!

… Phew! That felt pleasant, didn’t it?   

Make the Switch.
Make the Switch.

Yooka-Laylee for Nintendo Switch features a shed-load of polish and updates, including single-JoyCon play across all eight multiplayer games, a custom Achievement system, plus the ability to take our collecting duo on the go without the need for extravagant extension leads! 

The Playtonic team has spent many, many months optimising Yooka-Laylee for Nintendo Switch (with technical help and support from Nintendo and Unity themselves!) and we believe we’re delivering a version Nintendo fans can be proud of. 

Players can expect a quality experience both on and away from the television and on top of that, Switch players will benefit from the huge list of updates we’ve added since launch such as a brand new camera mode, control improvements, menu options, music… and a lot more! 

Thanks again for your continued support and patience. We hope you agree Yooka-Laylee for Nintendo Switch is worth the wait!
