That Spiritual Successor to Banjo-Kazooie? It's Called Yooka-Laylee and It's on Kickstarter
Meet Yooka and Laylee, the chameleon and the bat at the head of Playtonic Games' Yooka-Laylee.
Yooka uses his tongue as a grappling hook, while Laylee carries Yooka around on wings as the pair roll, jump, and fly to great adventures in this new platformer.
If you're feeling like you're having Banjo-Kazooie flashbacks looking at this, there's a reason for that; the game's developers are a group of former Rare employees who have come together at a new company of their own called Playtonic Games. This is the studio's first game, and they've made no secret of the fact that they want it to be a "spiritual successor" to Banjo-Kazooie. Playtonic is taking their game to Kickstarter in order to get financial support from fans and make this game the best it can be. When funded, Yooka-Laylee will be released for PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U. Part of the Kickstarter's goal is achieving simultaneous release for every platform, as well as co-op mode, multiplayer, extra bosses, and additional languages.
