Team17 and Playtonic Games, formed by former veterans of the platforming genre (AKA Rare 2.0), has released a new gameplay trailer for upcoming platformer ( that totally has nothing to do with Banjoe Kazooie) Yooka-Laylee exploring the beautiful and incredibly slippery ice world of Glitterglaze Glacier.
Glitterglaze Glacier, is one of five expansive worlds that will feature within the game. With players given the option to either storm through the game by collecting new grand tombs which allow Yooka and Laylee to travel to new worlds, or alternatively spend more time and expand the current world by using ‘paigies’ to open more challenging areas within the world they’re in.
Yooka-Laylee is currently scheduled for release on the 11th April 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac and Linux, and will be available on Nintendo Switch at alter date.
Gamers who pre-order either digitally or the physical version of Yooka-Laylee from select retailers such as GAME in the UK and Amazon in the US will receive an instant unlock of the Yooka-Laylee Toybox, which gives players a taste of the platforming mechanics set to appear in the full game in a self-contained, spoiler free sandbox experience.
