Yooka-Laylee gets E3 debut and new delayed release date
E3 is coming and one game that we’re super excited to hear more about is Yooka-Laylee…and today we’ve got the official E3 trailer to check out. Unfortunately we also have news that the game won’t see the light of day until 2017.
Playtonic Games and Team17 have today unveiled the E3 trailer for the upcoming 3D platforming adventure. Yooka-Laylee is being revealed at E3 for the first time and you can check out the trailer below.
Yooka-Laylee, which will release in Q1 of 2017, stars the charismatic due, 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).
If you want to check it out at E3, then you’ll find it, by appointment only, in the Concourse Hall room #8804.
“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.”
