Yooka-Laylee will launch in both physical and digital formats for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 11, 2017 for £34.99 / $39.99 / €39.99, developer Playtonic Games announced.
Pre-orders across all platforms include access to the “Toybox Demo.”
Playtonic Games also announced that development on the Wii U version of Yooka-Laylee has been cancelled, and that they are instead looking into bringing the game to Switch. Here is the full statement:
“We’re sad to announce that despite our best efforts and exploring every possible avenue, we have encountered unforseen technical issues that unfortunately mean it will be impossible for us to release Yooka-Laylee on Wii U as initially planned.” Gavin Price, Studio Director, Playtonic Games confirmed.
“We can however confirm today that we are working very closely with Nintendo to look to bring Yooka-Laylee to the upcoming Nintendo Switch. We’re thrilled to be able to explore the opportunity and more details will be shared in early 2017. Of course, any backers who pledged for the Wii U version will be able to move their pledge to any of the versions launching on April 11th or upgrade to the Nintendo Switch version when we announce further details in 2017. Thanks again for your incredible support.”
