Shovel Knight guest stars in Yooka-Laylee character parade
Playtonic Games has released a new trailer for their upcoming platformer, Yooka-Laylee, with a colorful character roster to introduce us to the cast of the game.
If you haven’t heard of Yooka-Laylee (or Playtonic Games), the game comes courtesy of the creative talent originally working with Rare studios – the ones behind the classic Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country franchises.
This latest trailer, which gives us a better idea of the range of characters, was revealed during a developer panel at the EGX UK Gaming Expos, which wrapped up this weekend. The surprise came with the addition of Shovel Knight as a special guest, which came from a collaboration with Yacht Club Games.
Yooka-Laylee is slated for release in the first quarter of 2017 on the Wii U. In the meantime, check out the trailer above and let us know if you’re excited to see the new characters in action.
