Yooka-Laylee Will Feature Shovel Knight As An NPC

by Dean James


Kickstarter has become a very big source for developers to get money to make their games through crowdfunding, with some of the biggest to date being the disappointing Mighty No. 9 and the upcoming Shenmue 3. Another in that group is definitely Yooka-Laylee, and a new trailer has revealed a very special guest star in the game.

Coming from many of the members of the former team at Rare under the new name Playtonic Games, which worked on the likes of Banjo-Kazooie and the Donkey Kong Country series, Yooka-Laylee was a huge Kickstarter success and we’ve been really excited to get any new information about the game.

The latest info game courtesy of Playtonic Games at the EGX expo in Birmingham, England this week, where we got a brand new trailer for the game. This introduces many characters from the game, with the trailer concluding by revealing that Shovel Knight himself is also in the game as an NPC.

Games like Banjo-Kazooie are way too few and far between these days, so fans have been really excited for Yooka-Laylee and it keeps looking better with every new trailer. Little additions like this are really awesome and we can’t wait to play it in Q1 2017, but in the meantime, make sure to check out the new trailer below.
