As recently unveiled by the official website, the switch version of “Yooka-Laylee” will be released later this month. However, according to a recent announcement by Playtonic Games, switch owners will have to forgo (for now) a retail version.
While the PC, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 were considered a few months ago with the platformer “Yooka-Laylee”, the switch version had to wait until now.
Only a few days ago, the responsible developers of Playtonic Games spoke up and announced that the switch implementation of “Yooka-Laylee” will be released later this month. Actually, it’s supposed to be on December 14th.
Yooka-Laylee: Switch version will initially only be available as a download version
As a supplement to the disclosure of the final release date, switch owners will only be given the opportunity to publish the platformer in a digital version for the launch of “Yooka-Laylee”. A retail version is currently not planned.
“We have no plans on the table,” said Playtonic Games on a possible retail version of “Yooka-Laylee” for Switch. He continued, “But if we have the demand in the future, we’d like to look into it more closely, but the top priority was to adjust the game and release it as soon as possible for Switch.”
