Yooka-Laylee is set to release April 11, 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac and Linux, Playtonic Games announced.
Playtonic will not be releasing the game for Wii U due to “unforeseen technical issues.” However, the game will be available for the Nintendo Switch. More details about Yooka-Laylee on Nintendo Switch are expected to be revealed in January.
Nintendo is planning to unveil more information about the Switch on Jan. 12.
Yooka-Laylee will be available in physical and digital editions. A deluxe edition available through Steam and GOG.com includes the game’s soundtrack and an art book.
Kickstarter backers will have the chance to change their digital pre-order to a physical copy and choose a new platform (The platform change is expected to be extended only to Wii U backers, due to that version being cancelled) at some point before the game’s release.
Players can pre-order Yooka-Laylee now and get access to the Toybox demo, which was previously exclusive to Kickstarter backers.
Yooka-Laylee was slated to come out in the first quarter of 2017, and the April 11 release date matches that goal, but barely. It will launch close to the end of the first quarter, which is disappointing, but at least we all finally know when to expect to get the game on our hands.
