‘Yooka-Laylee’ arrives on Nintendo Switch December 14th

by John_A

The wait is almost over: The whimsical, N64-styled retro platformer Yooka-Laylee will arrive on Nintendo Switch this December 14th. While versions for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were released in April, the game seems custom-tailored for Nintendo’s hybrid home/portable console. After all, the game was made by former Rare Ware employees (which existed more or less as a second-party studio since the NES’ hey-day) and its pick-up-and-play platforming is perfect for quick sessions on the go.

If you’ve already cleared Super Mario Odyssey and still have an itch for an old-school 3D platformer, Yooka-Laylee could be just the ticket for you. The team at Playtonic promises single JoyCon play for all eight multiplayer modes and that they had help optimizing the game for the Switch from Nintendo and engine-maker Unity (the toolset the game runs on).

“We believe we’re delivering a version Nintendo fans can be proud of,” the developer writes. You can be the judge of that yourself, and see if Playtonic scrapping the Wii U version was worthwhile, in a few short weeks.
