Boy am I looking forward to this.

I always intended on playing this on the Wii U, but do we still think this will get a Wii U release, now it's coming out Q1 2017, roughly the same time as the NX is [supposedly] released making the U less relevant. Do we think this will get a NX release too?

I really hope so. I backed it for WiiU but I'll gladly hang on a bit longer for an NX release if that becomes a possibility - or I'll buy it again.

I've been thinking along the same lines to be honest, same with Bloodstained as well. Probably makes more sense getting them both on the NX given the option as it'll more than likely be more powerful than the Wii U even if it is a handheld console hybrid and obviously it will be Nintendo's focus going forward. Just comes down to the developer at the end of the day and what they choose to do.

Indeed it does, love the music as well, it all has a very Banjo Kazooie vibe to it but not copying from it directly, I know it has been like this on all of their videos but I still find myself amazed by how good it sounds.

Trailer here anyway.



New gameplay from Eurogamer as well.



All looks very good.

Cool, I was going to download it but I prefer to buy discs so I will defiantly be getting the physical version

http://www.playtonicgames.com/yooka-lay ... s-release/

- Releasing April 11th 2017
- Backers will get the option to change their digital version to a physical version of the game soon
- Wii U version cancelled, Switch version planned. Wii U backers can switch to PC/PS4/Xbox One or the Switch version

I was actually kind of expecting this to happen, just hope it's not out months later on the Switch in comparison to the other platforms. Wonder if (or when) Bloodstained will take a similar route.

It is a shame that the game has been canned for Wii U but from a business perspective it isn't a surprise, switching development to the Switch is a better idea, but my guess is Playtonic is going to wait to see how well the Switch does before releasing it.

Still great it's coming fairly early next year.

Sad to say but it's not unexpected, like others I saw this coming a mile off. What I'm annoyed about though is the excuse Playtonic is giving; "we’ve encountered unforeseen technical issues" but looking a little deeper into it (just scroll down a little in the comments below the artilce) implies they've been told to say that. I find this excuse more frustrating than the actual announcement. We all know its being moved to Switch because of the WiiU's current position but I'll wager its Nintendo telling them they can't say this and instead, they're giving the age old technical issue blarb that we've been thrown time and time again over the years. Even after all these years, and lets face it we've had this excuse since the GameCube, is still stings and disappoints.

Still though, I am happy it's Switch bound and I'll still get to play it on a Nintendo machine. I just hope it's not too far behind every other console but a launch title would be amazing...you listening Playtonic?

To be fair to PlayTonic Unity does run pretty poorly on the Wii U.

Disappointed about the Wii U version. I'm not likely to pick up a Switch until later in the year anyway, so things might line up nicely for me... I guess. :(

Just got the email about my backer survey being unlocked to change the Wii U pre-order. Ended up selecting a refund. Won't be getting a Switch until at least a year after it comes out, so I don't wanna be sat with a code for a game I can't play, and honestly I don't really want it on PC. Feels like it should be played on a Nintendo system imo. Might sound odd but that's just the way I feel lol. Maybe in a year's time the Switch will get a physical release too...
