After giving the public a worlds first hands-on with Yooka Laylee at EGX, Team17 have dropped a new trailer…and this one shows off the special guest appearance of Shovel Knight.
With Team17 and Playtonic Games teaming up with Yacht Club Games, Shovel Knight and others have been revealed as making special guest appearances in the wonderful world of Yooka-Laylee. The trailer below focuses on these guests with the following all present and correct:
- Capital B – Cunning bizzness executive Capital B is the CEO of diabolical corporation Hivory towers, which has recently joined forces with ingenious tech firm Quack Corp. Together, they’re about to launch their most devious scheme yet: To absorb all of the world’s books and take over the world!
- Trowzer – The serpent salesman claims to be the most skilled and knowledgeable character in the game, though Laylee suspects he’s little more than a dodgy dealer. During their adventure, Yooka and Laylee can purchase advanced manoeuvres from Trowzer’s travelling moves shop.
- Dr. Quack – The former partner of Dr. Puzz, Quack’s increasingly wild experiments lead him down the path of corruption. Now fully clad in a not-so-hi-tech ‘biosuit’, the ‘good’ doctor uses his scientific expertise to power up Hivory Towers’ Corplet employees
- Dr. Puzz – A hapless scientist who’s experience more than her share of tentacle – erm ‘technical’ issues, Dr. Puzz will use her D.N.Ray to transform Yooka and Laylee into a plethora of crazy critters and help them on their adventure.
After a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign which quickly drew the attention of Team17, Yooka-Laylee will arrive to bring the charismatic duo and the glorious 3D world that they frequent to Xbox One, PS4 and PC in Q1 2017. After going hands-on with it at EGX, we can’t wait to play more!
