The new Banjo-Kazooie

Hey Gamers and Collectors everywhere.

Yooka-Laylee The new musical duo from Playtonic Games

Playtonic Games has been teasing the making of a new Banjo-Kazooie game for a long while, but now we know that the new game is the spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie and is NOT a sequel. The game is titled: "Yooka-Laylee"  and looks to be bringing back the classic N64 feel. On Mar 14, 2015 Playtonic released a press confrence on Youtube, talking about the rebirth of the 3D platformer. Their game Yooka-Laylee has great graphics and its main characters; Yooka (The chameleon) and Laylee (the bat), have similar abilities to their predecessors (Banjo-Kazooie). Of course the game doesn't seem to entirely copy Banjo-Kazooie, in-fact its quite unique, in many ways. The team behind this game (Playtonic Games) is mostly comprised of previous RARE employees, the same people who worked on the original Banjo-Kazooie game and Donkey Kong Country. The main characters were designed by Steve Mayles, who also designed Banjo-Kazooie and the modern kong family. We do not know which consoles this game will be released for as of yet, but it will more than likely be released for the WiiU. For Nintendo 64 fans, this should bring back memories because its supposed to be bringing back the feel of that era, but with awesomtacularly improved graphics and game play (video from IGN) IGN will be releasing exclusive video game footage so stay tuned for more information from both IGN and AR-Cade Gaming
"Yooka-Laylee (previously ‘Project Ukulele’) is an all-new 3D platformer from the creative talent behind the Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country games. We’ve come together to form Playtonic Games and create a spiritual successor to our most cherished work from the past!
Our new heroes, Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with big nose) were conceptualised from the ground up for stellar platforming gameplay, created by the same character artist behind the rebooted Donkey Kong family and legendary N64 heroes Banjo and Kazooie. Let’s collect some golden trinkets!"~Source-Playtonic Games
