Yooka-Laylee is still on its way to Switch

by Luke HendersonSeptember 26, 2017

Playtonic have given an update on the Switch version of Yooka-Laylee, including a brief video of the game running on the system, you can watch that at the bottom of the page.

According to the latest update, provided by the team, the game was running on the Switch, but they were waiting on the latest version of Unity to fix some issues, that seems to be a trend with developers on Switch. However once, that arrived, it revealed some other issues, that they need to resolve, before they can begin the submission process to Nintendo. Here is the full explanation.

The Playtonic team has been working tirelessly to bring Yooka-Laylee to Nintendo Switch and we’re very nearly there (we promise!) However, we’ve encountered some final technical hurdles and had been waiting for the arrival of Unity 5.6 in order to fix them. Although this has now been released, it has unfortunately introduced other issues which we are working with Unity to resolve before we can submit to Nintendo and lock in our release timeline.

We understand the frustration that it’s taken so long to get the game in your hands but we hope that you understand that we’re working as fast as we can and want the game to perform as well as it possibly can on Switch. Once these remaining issues are resolved we hope to finally be able to commit to and share a launch date. Thanks as ever for your patience and please bear with us – we are getting there!

With that update, we have a few more details about the game, but still no proposed release window, but stay tuned, the moment we know, you will know.


What's your reaction?
Oh wow!

    I think this needed to come out before Odyssey to be the first 3D platformer on Switch…unless there is a lot of patches and tweaks to it, this is going to be going to be bombarded under the major releases.
