Playtonic Games have teamed up with folks over at IGN to give us our first look at Yooka-Laylee‘s multiplayer. In the video above, you can see them try out one of the frantic 4-player games set to feature in the upcoming title.

In case you missed it, here’s what you’ll get in the multiplayer mode:

Yooka-Laylee will feature 8 unique multiplayer games that can be found in dated dinosaur Rextro’s Arcade, and a two player buddy mode for the main adventure!

Rextro’s Arcade can be tackled solo to achieve high scores, or in local couch co-op with up to four players! Compete in the Glaciators brawler arena to collect the most quills, race to the finish line in Kartos Karting, fight for the flag in Blag the Flag, blast away the enemies in shoot-em-up Gun-let Run and traverse both Jobstacle Course and Hurdle Hijinx, plus more!

To engage in two player co-operative gameplay, simply connect an additional controller to buddy up! Taking control of the Bee Team, the second player will able to grab quills and collect and store butterflies for when Yooka and Laylee are really in need of health or energy boost. They can even stop some traps to help the player traverse past particularly tricky obstacles!

Yooka-Laylee is out on April 11 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
