For fans of Playtonic’s upcoming platformer, and spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, Yooka-Laylee, get excited, because here’s the E3 trailer for the game, and it looks absolutely charming!

Yep, with E3 just a week away, Playtonic Games has released the E3 trailer for the highly anticipated title, as well as announcing that they’ll be showcasing the game for the first time at E3 2016, from June 14 through to June 16.

If that wasn’t enough new Yooka-Laylee news for you, Playtonic has also revealed that the game has a more firm release date of Q1 2017 on PC and consoles!

“After a lot of soul searching and knowing through dialogue with our fans that they value quality and polish above all, we’ve made the difficult decision to lock the release of Yooka-Laylee to Q1 2017. While we felt confident we could ship the game in October as originally planned, the team has decided that it would like to add a few extra months’ polish to our schedule. Ultimately, this will allow us to release a better game to the thousands of fans who’ve supported us throughout development,” said Gavin Price, Creative Director and MD of Playtonic. “We’re sure some will be disappointed by the prospect of a few extra months’ wait, however the Playtonic team is confident that we’ve made the right decision for the game and that you’ll be pleased with the results when the game arrives early next year.”
