FAQ

The Wii U version is cancelled. If you preordered Yooka-Laylee for Wii U it's your last chance to switch to a different platform or request a refund.

I chose Wii U as my platform. What options do I have?

  • Change to a PC digital Steam version (and receive Toybox Plus on PC to compensate for price difference)
  • Change to a digital console version (Xbox One, PS4 or Switch)
  • Upgrade to a physical console version w/ console Toybox code (Xbox One or PS4 – £20 upgrade cost applies)
  • Request a refund

If someone wish to request a refund, know that I'm willing to buy your digital preorder if you switch it to Steam.

I still think it's weird to offer the Switch version without any indication of when it is coming.

Already went from Wii U to Switch. Now to find out when the Switch version will even be released.

Thankfully I didn't back, but I probably would have opted for the refund, which I'd then put aside for the (hopefully eventual) retail release on the Switch.

Does anyone know if this game will target 1080p / 60fps on PS4. And if it will have a PS4 Pro mode?

I wonder how much of a difference the WiiU to Switch conversion will make...

I'd love for it on the go but if it just feels like a compromised build, I may as well just get it for ps4

Is it 60fps on PS4 or Switch?

Don't know how true it is, but several posts have mentioned it's 30fps in other threads.

Which is pretty embarrassing and disappointing when it doesn't really look any better than something like Mario 3D World, and that was on the Wii U.

Thanks for the heads up.
I backed for a Steam key which is what my backer kit shows but holy shit.
I backed this for GBP 10. And it's base price is $40 now.

In https://yooka-laylee.backerkit.com/backer/review I see "Edit Pledge Questions":



The third question is your platform of choice.

That Snake Pass game was moved to Switch fast right? Gives me hope Playtonic can also knock out the Switch version sooner rather than later.

Announcing the Switch version "early" made it an option for non-Wii U backers, too. The Switch is a new platform, both literally and within the context of the game's development, so giving everyone the chance to switch to it is only fair.

Snake Pass is UE4, Yooka-Laylee is Unity.

Sumo Digital is a well established, experienced, and technically proficient team. Playtonic has pedigree but it is nevertheless an unproven studio working on its first title.

Honestly Unity is probably also the reason why the game is 30fps on all consoles.

I had a feeling. Hope they move away from Unity on their next game then.
