Yooka-Laylee Multiplayer Revealed in Latest Trailer

Yooka-Laylee Multiplayer Revealed in Latest Trailer

Playable in both single-player mode or with up to four players in local multiplayer, these 8 unique competitive games are created to channel the heyday of couch multiplayer, when "lag" meant forgetting what time of day it was when your mates eventually switched off and stumbled home. These can be found in Rextro's arcade.

Yooka-Laylee is the spiritual successor to the popular console platforming series Banjo-Kazooie, in which a honey bear (Banjo) and a big red bird (Kazooie) had similarly adorable adventures. Kartos Karting, Hurdle Hijinx and Jobstacle course will involve a mad dash to the finish while avoiding what the course (and your friends) can throw at you.

For anyone who finds the special play coins within Yooka-Laylee's single-player campaign, the arcade cabinets within the book worlds will be powered up.

And that's not all! The press release notes that they'll be able to, "grab quills and collect and store butterflies for when Yooka and Laylee are really in need of health or energy boost". Players are able to tackle all of the games solo in a bid for a high score on the leaderboards, or they can engage in local couch co-op for up to four players! Think Murphy from Rayman Legends but less distracting and arguably more helpful.
