All New Details Hit For Yooka-Laylee

yooka_laylee.0.0

A slew of new updates have surfaced regarding Yooka-Laylee and the good people over at GoNintendo broke it all down. Check out all the new details regarding the platform below. I think this game sounds pretty exciting and I am always eager to hear more. Platforming titles will always have a special place in my heart so it’s nice to see another one headed our way.

Check out the new details below:

– scale and level of detail has been greatly increased
– characters will speak in gibberish as they did in Banjo-Kazooie
– Chris Sutherland and composer Grant Kirkhope worked on this aspect
– the pair “spent a lot of time trying to figure out the timing and iterating regularly until it sounded just right.”
– Ghosts can be found in each world; one hides, another attacks you, and a more elusive spirit requires you to chase and catch it
– 200 quills scattered across the world, spread across race circuits and along vast, undulating minecart tracks
– Tokens unlock the eight multiplayer arcade games hosted by Rextro, which can be found in the main menu and support up to 4 players
– Tonics: RPG-style modifiers that also act as in-game accomplishments; ex: reduce power consumption of Yooka’s role, which could be attached to something like killing 100 enemies
– There’s a pickup which triggers a transformation exclusive to that particular world
– use a Splash Berry to feed a raincloud, which will in turn generate a waterfall that fills a dry riverbed
– this will open up new areas
– choose a Frost Berry instead, and the river will freeze over, giving you access to a harder race across a slippery surface
– you can move onto the next area once you’ve collected enough Pagies
– you can also spend them on expanding the environment
– for example, spend Pagies on a towering monument that dwarfs what was there before
– this will also open up activities that are more difficult platforming sections
– Regain health by collecting butterflies
– Refill the power meter by eating butterflies
– New Game+ mode will be included where all moves are unlocked from the beginning
– Spend Quills to extend Yooka and Laylee’s move sets; ex: sonar shot for Laylee which fires translucent waves and triggers invisible platforms to reach a previously inaccessible temple area
– When you unlock a new world, Trowzer will give you a new power as a way of thanking you for letting him expand his business
– Challenges won’t be repeated across the different worlds; the team wants to constantly surprise players
– The challenge ramps up in the second world, which has a wintry theme
