Playtonic Games has announced through its Kickstarter that the crowd-funded Yooka-Laylee will get both a physical and digital release.
We’re delighted to be able to offer Yooka-Laylee in both digital and boxed flavours in time for the game’s launch in Q1 2017. As we speak, our business badgers are busily burrowing away on an initiative that will allow Kickstarter backers to upgrade their digital pledge to a physical version, if they choose to do so. We’re not ready to share the exact details just yet, but very soon you should be able to stick your head in the badger hole and look for yourself.
Kickstarter backers will be offered the option to upgrade to a physical copy of the game if they wish or they can continue with their digital pledge. Details of the upgrade have not been released at this time but Yooka-Laylee is due to release on PC, PlayStation 4, Wii U and Xbox One in early 2017.
Disclosure: We have personally backed Playtonic Games and the Yooka-Laylee campaign.
