Anyone know if the original is enjoyable to play yet? I was so looking forward to it, but then heard all the bad things about controls and still haven't played it.

I enjoyed it, but I think a significant part of that was due to me having grown up with Banjo Kazooie/Tooie. The camera has seen some improvements since it came out. I never had an issue with the controls; they're nowhere near as tight as, say, Mario Odyssey, but few games are.

I'd say if you're still able to enjoy a game like the original Banjo Kazooie today, you'll probably enjoy Yooka Laylee. It feels very much like a 3D platformer of the N64 era, just with modern graphics.

Reminds me of tropical freeze, will consider it for sure.

Im actually happy its a 2D sidescroller. Looks really fun.

Same, I think I'm actually more into it than I would've been if it had been a straight-up 3D collectathon sequel. I just played through the original back in January when I finally got my physical cartridge copy, and I probably wouldn't have been in the mood to jump back into more of the same less than a year later.

Plus, while the original already paid homage to Kazooie/Tooie, hopefully this will similarly be a nice throwback to the other series Rare was most acclaimed for, their 2D DKC games.



This will nicely fill the gap in 2D DK platformer type of game :)

After the bad criticism the first one got, this one seems to be a smart move.
If the level design is tight and challenging, this could be a buy for me.



Intel Core i7 8700K | 32 GB DDR 4 PC 3200 | ROG STRIX Z370-F Gaming | Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti 11GB VRAM | Asus PG27UQ gaming on 3840 x 2160 @120 Hz GSYNC HDR| HTC Vive Pro :3

Reached PC Masterrace level.

First game was okay. I liked it, but it lacked polish, which made a lot of challenges frustrating when they could have been fun. A 2D platformer is much easier, so hopefully they get the controls down and this is fun.

Banjo Tooie is one of my favorite games ever so I think I shall!



That's pretty awesome, I love it when a new IP isn't just a one and done game, we see it so often now where there is a great game but it features a character that will never expand out into a brand, like say Horizon Zero dawn, would be great to see that world expand out like the way Nintendo does with Mario as a brand, create a great game with a great character and then make a new game and use the old character to bring some of that audience into the new title.

For those interested btw Yooka Laylee are also in the roster for the smash clone called Brawl out and they have their own story mode in it that's rather fun to play through (they are free dlc in the game!) but yeah I love the idea of creating new IP's and new actual series of games so we don't have to be going back to the well for the Spyro Trilogy and the Crash Trilogy to remember a time when we had a mascot character last more than a single title.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

If you can still enjoy Banjo Tooie to this day you should have a blast with Yooka Laylee, its very much cut from the same cloth.
