Ex-Rare members have joined forces to bring us a new experience. Two awesome creatures team up, to get through levels. Sound familiar? Good. Yooka is the a chameleon in Green, and Laylee is our Lady-Bat character. You can’t help but feel the awesome old school vibe from this as well. The original artist of the Donkey Kong Country and Banjo-Kazooie is doing all the art work. In their Kickstarter, Playtonic games have announced that the original voice actor from BK will be a part of this too. David Wise will be handling the soundtrack duties. His work was recently heard in the excellent DKC: Tropical Freeze. Joining him will be: “Grant Kirkhope (Viva Piñata, GoldenEye 007) and Banjo and Conker sound effects supremo Steve Burke (Kameo: Elements of Power).”
“Sonar blasting, tongue whipping, sky soaring… a move roster built for platforming fun – and unlocked with added freedom. Additionally, there may or may not be a move involving a giant fart bubble.” -Playtonic Games
If those abilities (the last one especially) don’t get you excited, well then im not sure what to tell you buddy. We will see this title on PC, Mac, Linux, XO, PS4 and Wii U. So a lot of potential ways to play. It’s great YL got funded so fast. If Rare (Microsoft) won’t step up, then somebody has to. Big ups to Playtonic. We are highly anticipating this one. Check out the link to see some of the goodies investors will be getting. It’s pretty neat-o.
