Yooka-Laylee

#1 Posted: 04:28:15 16/02/2015 | Topic Creator
Ex-Rare employees had formed a company called Playtonic, and through a Kickstarter campaign, they created Yooka-Laylee, a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie - http://www.playtonicgames.com/

Pre-game reveal images (2015) -

From Siliconera.com -

"Among the team are Chris Sutherland who was the lead programmer of Donkey Kong Country and the Banjo-Kazooie games, and who also voiced Banjo and Kazooie – he’ll be voicing the characters of Playtonic’s new game, too. The artist and creator of Banjo and Kazooie, Steve Mayles, is also on the team. Grant Kirkhope, the composer of many of Rare’s games including the Banjo-Kazooie games, is on board to create music for the project as well.

“There’s been so much pent-up passion for doing something like this, because we’ve all been sat on a lot of these ideas since Banjo-Tooie came out,” Playtonic’s lead and previously designer of Viva Pinata Gavin Price told Edge.

Playtonic’s current goal is to make a proof-of-concept and then upscale to an “N64-size” team of between 10 to 15 staff, and many other ex-Rare employees are in waiting on these positions.

Right now, the team has funding for this first game and have a long-term business plan that will see the team tackling other genres after this initial 3D platformer, but only if they arrive at them naturally rather than trying to force themselves on a certain type of game.

Playtonic is currently aiming to bring this debut title to PC and certain console platforms and hopes to use Steam Early Access to get it into players’ hands as soon as possible for feedback. “There’s a history of working with Nintendo, so we’d naturally love to see our game on a Nintendo platform. I people tell us to make Wii U our target console platform, then we’ve got the flexibility to do that,” Rice also told Edge."

I want to see what comes out of this, hopefully Playtonic and Nintendo will join back together. Losing Rare was a really bad situation Nintendo was put in.

I wonder what kind of characters they will be. I seriously, SERIOUSLY hope they're not going to be human. I'd really like to see more video games staring things besides humans. (I know everyone knows my interests by now, but I still hope they keep with animal characters. And yes, I know we are humans, but that doesn't mean EVERYTHING has to star our species.)

Edit: Also, cannot view the above video.

Oh, neat! I never got to play much Banjo-Kazooie, but I really liked what I did play. Anything in that vein is going to be fun and I'm liking the concept art already. :)

It may be interesting. But then I remember that Sonic Boom was being advertised with a team of ex-Naughty Dog devs. Granted, heyday Rare had quite the pedigree. But I'm taking this with a mountain of salt. <.<;

Sonic is cursed. Not sure what else to say. While Sonic does get a good game every now and then, he hasn't really produced that true "Come Back To Glory" title since Sonic Adventure 2. (Debatable)

I hope the funding goes well, they said it would come out sooner if it gets funded well enough. I don't want a wait as long as Mighty No. 9 (I can't remember how long the wait is/was, but I think it was over a year). Although I never played a Banjo & Kazoie game, Yooka-Laylee reminds me of my favourite games from when I first played games. I hope we see some actual gameplay soon, though.

I reckon Yooka is gonna be the female, and Laylee the male in this game. Yooka has a feminine look IMO.

It's mainly the eyes, and her overall smoothness compared to Laylee (I will call Yooka female and Laylee male for now). And I think the back of her head kinda looks like a short but feminine hair cut:

Ah, yeah I can see it now, though I'm still not 100% certain.

I suppose I'll refer to Yooka as female and Laylee as male too, at least until it's confirmed otherwise.
(though it would actually be pretty cool if Yooka is female)

Either way, I'm really excited for this and I really hope it comes to the Wii U. (even though I still don't have one, haha)

Well the crowdfunded game has now ironically been picked up by publisher Deep Silver, so that may have something to do with it...

...As for this, I'll admit my interest is piqued considering what they've done with 3 months and no real funding. I'd like to see what the Kickstarter plans are for this, but I'm still quite wary. <.<;

Well of course you're going to have to take Tax in account for Mewtwo, plus if you only have cash, the cheapest eShop card is $10.

He means the Kazooie-esque character, Laylee, the one that sits on the larger character's back and flies around. They serve the same purpose and are basically designed to be inherently similar, as to why he referred to him as Kazooie. He doesn't actually think Kazooie is in this game.

Has it been said when this game will release?

As for their genders, what I want is Yooka being male, Laylee female but odds are it's the other way around. Hard to tell, they both look more male than female.

Perhaps they DO have genders, but they wont be revealed? Keeping it to the players imagination would be a fun idea.

If you knew what I meant, what difference does it make?


I'd really like to see this game do well, but as much as I would like to see Yooka-Laylee succeed, I've learned better than to get my hopes up for games staring anthropomorphic animals. Sometimes a game staring animals is surprisingly good, but good animal games are very rare these days. I almost feel like games staring animals are doomed to suck.

Rare(lel) post in the Video Gaming section again,but seriously,I've been waiting for this for more than half a decade(got late in the fandom mostly because I never had a legit N64). I can't afford it right now, but oh man I'm so getting the console code rank even if I'm still saving up for a WiiU.
Also steel drums and trumphets. Yes.
