Team17 and Playtonic Games have revealed that Yooka-Laylee, their open-world platformer, will launch on April 11th 2017 for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

The game is now available to pre-order at £34.99 for non-Kickstarter backers in both digital and physical formats (PS4/Xbox One). Kickstarter backers will soon have the option to upgrade to a physical version if they choose. The pre-order offer includes an instant unlock to the Yooka-Laylee Toybox which gives a taste of the platforming mechanics set to appear in the full game in a self-contained, spoiler free sandbox experience.

Playtonic have said that due to ‘unforseen technical issues’, Yooka-Laylee will not see release on Wii U as planned. Instead the developers are in talks to bring the game to Nintendo Switch instead.

Playtonic and Team17 also revealed a brand-new world for the tail-twirling buddy-duo to explore: Capital Cashino. As with all the five worlds in Yooka-Laylee, this new world will be fully expandable, providing players with a whole new area to explore and challenges to complete, with an exciting gameplay twist; players must now compete to win casino tokens, and exchange them with the banker for pivotal Pagies.

Check out the official Playtonic blog and the Team17 website for more information.
