Playtonic’s “spiritual successor” to Banjo-Kazooie revealed as Yooka-Laylee


Playtonic Games have revealed their “spiritual successor” to Banjo-Kazooie as being Yooka-Laylee, starring chameleon Yooka and big-nosed, wisecracking bat Laylee as the game’s heroes.

“They’re not real human beings, but they are our new heroes. Meet Yooka and Laylee, the buddy duo set to adventure in our aptly named debut project Yooka-Laylee, coming to Kickstarter this Friday!” Playtonic write on their revamped website.

“Dreamed up by character artist Steve ‘don’t call me Steven’ Mayles – the man behind Banjo, Kazooie and the rebooted Donkey Kong family – we think the bat ‘n chameleon are our most inventive protagonists yet, and we’ll tell you just why we’ve deemed that over the next 24 hours.”

IGN have shared the first gameplay footage which you can see below, while it’s promised that we’ll learn more later today when Yooka-Laylee’s Kickstarter campaign will launch at 5pm BST.
