Yooka-Laylee developer Playtonic Games were built with a short panel discussion at EGX 2016 to visit alongside a brand new trailer for that game.

The recording, which may be seen below, showcases the primary protagonists, Yooka and Laylee, together with villains Capital B and Dr. Quack. A clip also features the game’s primary theme song, based on Grant Kirkhope, certainly one of Yooka-Laylee’s composers.

Playtonic Games teased an unexpected announcement in the future at EGX. The secret’s revealed close to the trailer’s conclusion. Shovel Dark night is going to be featured in Yooka-Laylee.

There’s been no official statement about how Shovel Dark night will squeeze into Yooka-Laylee, however the trailer shows Shovel Dark night becoming an NPC.

They suggested more guest figures might be featured in Yooka-Laylee, until then there is nothing planned in that way.

Even though many fans were wishing for any Nintendo NX port announcement or perhaps a firm release date, Shovel Dark night being introduced was a thrilling surprise. It’s great to determine Playtonic Games building bridges and associations for future projects.

Gamers that performed Banjo-Kazooie’s follow up, Banjo-Tooie, may remember Rare including their very own titular character of Sabrewulf like a cameo. The inclusion of Shovel Dark night is really a natural advancement of this concept. Also, the thought of Chris Sutherland and company coaching people of Yacht Club Games regarding how to make “Banjo-Kazooie gibberish” for Shovel Knight’s inclusion hanging around is simply a wonderful thought.
