Yooka-laylee Multiplayer Reveal!


Hey Community,

It's exciting news time! That's right, it's time to show off some of the multiplayer goodness you can get stuck into in Yooka-laylee.

Yooka-Laylee will feature 8 unique multiplayer games that can be found in dated dinosaur Rextro's Arcade, and a two player buddy mode for the main adventure!

Rextro's Arcade can be tackled solo to achieve high scores, or in local couch co-op with up to four players! Compete in the Glaciators brawler arena to collect the most quills, race to the finish line in Kartos Karting, fight for the flag in Blag the Flag, blast away the enemies in shoot-em-up Gun-let Run and traverse both Jobstacle Course and Hurdle Hijinx, plus more!

To engage in two player co-operative gameplay, simply connect an additional controller to buddy up (drop in, drop out style)! Taking control of the Bee Team, the second player will able to grab quills and collect and store butterflies for when Yooka and Laylee are really in need of health or energy boost. They can even stop some traps to help the player traverse past particularly tricky obstacles!

The trailer is live and ready for you to oggle in all it's glory, we look forward to hearing what you think in the forums!

Digital Deluxe Edition



Yooka-Laylee Digital Deluxe is the ultimate platforming package, including an exclusive digital manual and art book, plus the game’s incredible soundtrack!

DIGITAL MANUAL & ART BOOK


Yooka-Laylee’s 24-page digital manual and art book features exclusive details on the characters, worlds and challenges set to feature in the highly-anticipated platformer revival! Oh, and there are a few excellent puns in there too, if you’re interested.

The digital artbook includes never-before-seen concept art and in-development images offering an insight into the creation of the game. Marvel at the post-it note origins of serpent salesman Trowzer! Say ‘wow’ as you discover that Dr. Quack used to ride a tank! A must-have for fans.

SOUNDTRACK


Yooka-Laylee’s mouth-watering (ear-leaking?) soundtrack combines three of gaming’s greatest composers, the legendary David Wise (Donkey Kong Country, Diddy Kong Racing), equally esteemed Banjo-Kazooie composer Grant Kirkhope (Viva Piñata, GoldenEye 007) and the award-winning Steve Burke (Kameo: Elements of Power). This is one musical performance you definitely don’t want to miss!
