Yooka-Laylee has recently entered Gold phase and the launch of the game is scheduled for April on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The development team has also confirmed the existence of a version for Nintendo Switch (still without a launch date), which, however, will be published exclusively in digital format.
In a note published on the official website, Playtonic Games has declared the following: “We continue to work closely with Nintendo on plans for a Nintendo Switch version of Yooka-Laylee and more details will be revealed in the future. We’re working as hard and fast as we can and are looking forward to giving you the answers you’re looking for on many topics including release timing. As soon we’re 100% certain of our plans, we’ll share them with you straight away – promise! We’d like to thank our many Nintendo fans for their continued patience and understanding.”
“Note: Upon release, the Kickstarter Switch version will be delivered to backers via digital game codes and thus no additional upgrade cost is required. For Kickstarter, unfortunately physical Switch editions are beyond our scope right now, as we anticipate the difference in costs compared to digital formats would result in further expense to backers which we’re unable to accurately determine at this point in time. If circumstances change, we’ll update you ASAP as we 100% would love to do a Physical Release on Switch.”
Recall that the launch of Yooka-Laylee is currently scheduled for April 11 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
