Yooka-Laylee Confirmed for Switch along with Wii U backer options

There was huge disappointment late last year when Playtonic Games confirmed that Yooka-Laylee was no longer coming to the Wii-U.

They did give strong hints that it would be bringing the title to Nintendo Switch, but the wording wasn’t exactly ironclad.

It now seems that will be the case, as the Switch version was outlined within a Kickstarter backer update (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/playtonic/yooka-laylee-a-3d-platformer-rare-vival/posts/1795150) . Wii U backers have a few options, and that includes changing to a Switch download copy.

There is no firm release date, but more details are promised in the future.

It’s due out on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on the 11th of April.
