Playtonic Games’ most recent game, Yooka-Laylee, released on April 11, 2017. The game was a love letter to old school 3D platforming games, such as Super Mario 64, Donkey Kong 64, and Banjo-Kazooie. In Yooka-Laylee, players follow the chameleon Yooka and his batty friend, Laylee. They can explore various levels filled with many different challenges to complete. While venturing through its worlds, players can find Pagies. If you find all of these golden pages, you will unlock another portion of the world for you to explore, allowing you to complete even more challenges. Check out our review of the game!
On April 1, 2019, Playtonic Games released the free 64-bit tonic update for Yooka-Laylee for the Nintendo Switch and PC versions of the game. This update converted the entire game into 64-bit format as a throwback to some of the magnificent platforming games of old. The update is still set to make its way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game, but no specific dates have been provided.
