Playtonic Games have released their E3 2016 trailer for one of the most highly anticipated games set to arrive on our machines, Yooka-Laylee! Set to be published by Team17, who have just celebrated more than twenty-five years in the gaming industry, this upcoming 3D platforming adventure is due to land in the first quarter of 2017.
Yooka-Laylee stars the charismatic new buddy duo Yooka and Laylee, who use an arsenal of special moves to explore – and expand – gorgeous 3D worlds filled with collectibles to discover, secrets to unlock and a cast of quirky characters to meet (or defeat).
“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.
“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.”
If you’re heading to E3 2016 – from 14th to 16th June in Los Angeles – Yooka-Laylee will be showcased, by appointment only, in the Concourse Hall room #8804.
