Today, Playtonic Games announced in their blog that Yooka-Laylee will be receiving a physical edition as well as a digital edition, which are due out in the beginning of Quarter 1 of 2017.
Playtonic Games had this to say
“We’re delighted to be able to offer Yooka-Laylee in both digital and boxed flavours in time for the game’s launch in Q1 2017. As we speak, our business badgers are busily burrowing away on an initiative that will allow Kickstarter backers to upgrade their digital pledge to a physical version, if they choose to do so. We’re not ready to share the exact details just yet, but very soon you should be able to stick your head in the badger hole and look for yourself.”
Playtonic Games would include Shovel Knight in Yooka-Laylee shown in the picture above and in the video below.
Chris Sutherland of Playtonic Games explains why Shovel Knight was chosen as a guest character below.
“We’ve always been fans of Shovel Knight and thought it’d be great to have some guest star characters from the rest of the indie community. It’s great for indies to be able to do that. There’s no kind of big barrier, you don’t have to go through seven levels of approval, you just go: yeah, we’re going to do that.”
Yooka-Laylee is set to release on
