Playtonic Has Recently Revealed That Over 1 Million Players Have Already Played YOOKA-LAYLEE

According to independent developer Playtonic, Yooka-Laylee has already been played by over 1 million players, hitting a new milestone for the spiritual successor of Rare's Banjo-Kazooie.

Yooka-Laylee is the result of a Kickstarter campaign that aimed to give players a similar experience to the classic Banjo-Kazooie, released for the Nintendo 64 back in 1998, as the proper spiritual successor to Rare's beloved 3d platformer series.

The game was developed by Playtonic, which is an independent developer based in England that was formed by Rare.Ltd veterans who had worked on several projects for the company now owned by Microsoft; including the Banjo-Kazooie series.

Yooka-Laylee was finally released in 2017 for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC; giving players a game that brings together all of the best elements from the Banjo-Kazooie titles.

The game's main charactes, Yooka and Laylee, have even made an appearance on the indie party fighting game Brawlout and, if the Kickstarter campaign is a success, will soon be getting a sequel in the form of a 120-page comicbook.

Recently, Playtonic has hit a new milestone as they shared on Twitter the news that over 1 million players have already played Yooka-Laylee. The tweet doesn't provide any additional information, but it is likely that they are considering digital and physical sales. Whatever the case, it is great news for the studio and the fans who have supported the game since the Kickstarter campaign was announced.




Explore huge, beautiful worlds, meet (and beat) an unforgettable cast of characters and horde a vault-load of shiny collectibles as buddy-duo Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with the big nose) embark on an epic adventure to thwart corporate creep Capital B and his devious scheme to absorb all the world’s books… and convert them into pure profit!

Yooka-Laylee is currently available for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.
