Yooka-Laylee is an all-new open-world platformer from key creative talent behind the Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country games. Reformed as Playtonic Games, the team is building a spiritual successor to its most cherished work from the past!

Playtonic’s new heroes, Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with big nose) were conceptualised from the ground up for stellar platforming gameplay, created by the same character artist behind the rebooted Donkey Kong family and legendary N64 heroes Banjo and Kazooie.

Tesco takes payment up front don't they.

Oh wow, I remember pledging to this on Kickstarter a few years ago, completely forgot about it! Thanks! Should get a copy then pretty soon

Great price...Heat added!

Not sure if everyone is aware, but the GAME edition has exclusive 'ToyBox Plus' DLC...which kind of justifies the extra £6 premium.

Not bad price for physical, anybody who is after digital Xbox version can get this for £16.30 from Russian marketplace with the Toybox Demo included

You just know this will get 6/10 review scores at best because the industry has moved on.

I won't be surprised if Knack has a better rating on Metacritic.

you get the toy box demo instanly from game so could get the demo then cancel the pre order with them

I know, but the gameplay looks fantastic for a classic bit of 3D platforming, having played the Toybox Demo it does seem quite good but obviously not a patch on what the main game will be

£6 to play a demo? Not sure that's any justification.

Gonna wait and see on performance before I purchase. It's an Unity engine game and Unity has crazy problems with CPU and framerate.

R&C? This title looks far closer to Mario 3D platforming, less on the repetitive trite shooting and more on exploration and fun.

It'll get an average of 8/10. Too much riding in this to be a poor title. Even so, 6-7/10 is a bloody respectable score.

I played this at EGX last year and thought it was fantastic

Merely letting people know, since the OP compared it to GAME's higher price but forgot to mention that it included the DLC.

Besides...£6 for an extra world which cannot be found in the main game doesn't sound too bad, when you consider how much of a rip off some DLC can be for other games out there!

I genuinely find the discussion of scores and Metacritic averages equally depressing and pathetic. I've played games that have "6/10" that have been fantastic (mechanics focused or incredibly thought out) and 9/10's that feel as dull as dish water to me. Modern reviews are increasingly poor barometers of determining a "good" or "bad" game, but merely measuring mass market appeal.

Anyway, reasonable price for a new game, thanks OP.

I dont care what reviews give it, based on what I have seen this looks like the Banjo 3 game everyone wanted but never got, heat for the price as well!

Critics aren't exactly very reliable to go by.

Industry moved on? The same industry that releases reiteration after reiteration of fifa and cod?

Haha at some of the comments here. I have no doubts that this game will perform extremely well and this is an amazing price - get it while you can.

If you're not a fan of this genre, that's cool. But there is absolutely space and demand for this type of 3D platforming. This game will mark a shift in the gaming world, mark my words.

Exactly my point. I'm happy if my clients get 6-7 out of 10. Totally respectable score, like I said earlier. A lot of people just don't understand scoring systems, it seems.

You seem to imply that this'll become hard to get but that seems unlikely. YL will probably be one of the best 2017 games and with it being on multiple platforms everyone will be able to play it.

I'm leaning more towards getting it for the Switch just to keep up with the tradition.

Can we please stop making assumptions about the quality of unreleased games? Haven't we learned by now that the only time we can really discuss the quality of a game is when it's released?

I'd even say it's best not to buy/preorder any game (subject to circumstances e.g. likely rarity, etc.).

heat added for making me aware of russian price, cant not pre order at £16

Real shame they ditched the Wii U version as it just felt right buying for nintendo, probably be getting it on PS4 now.

Switch confirmed

Are games that start off at 30 quid usually quite short in hours of gameplay?

The game will feature an optional "N64 shader" mode, which will imitate the graphical appearance of Nintendo 64 games
Also local multiplayer, looking forward to getting this,I also kickstarted

Id suggest waiting till release, or at least reviews come out, if you want to know anything like this as things like price and filesize mean nothing when it comes to playtime, enjoyment, quality, etc.

If this is anything like Banjo Kazooie it will be amazing. I'm waiting though for reviews first.

Pledged this on kickstarter a few years ago! Can't wait to get my copy from them.

Really looking forward to this (currently re-playing through Banjo!) and that's an absolute bargain. Cheers OP! Pre-ordered but may cancel after seeing what happens with the Switch as that'll be a day one purchase for sure!
