We're delighted to confirm that Yooka-Laylee for Nintendo Switch game codes are now dispatching to backers!

 

As usual, Kickstarter backer game codes are being distributed via BackerKit, so please keep an eye out for emails and check your spam folder. Backer game codes will allow you to pre-load Yooka-Laylee on your Nintendo Switch ahead of the game’s official release on December 14. More importantly, you’ll be able to play the game immediately as well!  

The Playtonic team personally handled development on Switch and spent many months adding significant optimisations, plus dozens of game updates to ensure that this version lives up to your expectations. We hope you enjoy it – and thanks again for your support!

In the lead up to Yooka-Laylee leaping on to Nintendo Switch, our artists continue to celebrate by paying tribute to the Nintendo classics they helped create. See their latest line of doodles below!

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!
