Rescue Queen Phoebee’s Royal Beettalion Guard and prepare to take on Capital B’s most dastardly challenge yet in this brand new platforming adventure hybrid!

Yooka-Laylee was released for PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One in 2017, and is seen as something of a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, the critically acclaimed Rare platform released for the Nintendo 64 back in 1998. The game features a two-player cooperative mode, and even a retro-inspired 64-bit mode that transforms the visuals to resemble those of a N64 title.
