UPDATE: The video is now embedded. Also, I had no idea this was a delay, so that is now acknowledged.

The Internet is understandably down on Kickstarted video games right now. After seeing Mighty No. 9‘s rancid trailer a week ago, I get it. Thankfully, Yooka-Laylee, the Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor made by ex-Rare devs, looks right on the money.

Yooka-Laylee‘s first trailer has a lot of power ups, traversal mechanics, and that adorable thing where the characters make lil noises while they talk. The only bad thing is that Yooka-Laylee has been delayed slightly into 2017, but that just means it’ll be even more polished.

After watching this trailer, some of my fears were quelled. Yooka-Laylee seems to not just embrace Banjo‘s legacy, but updates it for the modern age. Of all the genres that needed to be renovated, mascot platformers were right at the top, and who better to do it than Rar-I mean, Playtonic?
