Early October ... gosh, here I thought I'd get a bit of rest after this september xD

I know right, in October alone I'll be getting this, Trine 4, Witcher 3, and Luigi's Mansion 3. Probably gonna end up stashing this one for later down the road as I just won't have the time to play all the new games coming out. Switch's Sept-Nov is merciless.

The first Yooka Laylee can be said to be in a similar category to Spyro as a 3D platformer in the PS1/N64 mold, but this one is a 2.5 sidescroller more similar to Retro's Donkey Kong Country games.

Appropriate design choice, as former Donkey Kong Country staff now make up part of Playtonic's workforce. :)

I'm well aware. ;) What I find interesting is that this seems to take more cues from Retro's DKC games than Rare's. Which makes sense, I mean if you're gonna make a 2.5D platformer in 2019, best to take influence from the best of the genre's more recent entries.

I was one of those kinda hoping we'd get a new DKC game for the Switch, but failing that I'll take this as a substitute haha



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
