Curator Review

By Just Good PC Games May 13, 2017

“This game has a lot of problems, it's clunky and feels like it didn't really evolve at all from Banjo Kazooie. However, I feel that's part of why it drives Nostalgia and feels like i'm playing Banjo.”

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!

About This Game

Yooka-Laylee is an all-new open-world platformer from genre veterans Playtonic!

Explore huge, beautiful worlds, meet (and beat) an unforgettable cast of characters and horde a vault-load of shiny collectibles as buddy-duo Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with the big nose) embark on an epic adventure to thwart corporate creep Capital B and his devious scheme to absorb all the world’s books… and convert them into pure profit!

Using their arsenal of special moves, our heroes will tackle a huge variety of puzzles and platforming challenges in their search for Pagies, the golden bounty used to unlock — and expand — stunning new worlds, each jammed to the gills with oddball characters, hulking bosses, minecart challenges, arcade games, quiz shows, multiplayer games… and much more!

KEY FEATURES:


INTRODUCING OUR NEW BUDDY DUO: Yooka and Laylee boast an awesome arsenal of abilities built for platforming fun and unlocked with added freedom from the serpent salesman Trowzer.
