Other than the normal Day One update, Developer Playtonic hasn’t released an update for Yooka-Laylee since it launched back in April. However, this update is going to change and add a lot of improvements and new features to the game that players have been requesting for some time.
Here is a glimpse of what to expect from the update, due to launch within the few coming weeks according to a blog post on Playtonic Games.
In the days since launch – and as we work with speed towards the Nintendo Switch – the dev team has been frogmarched back down into the development mines to uncover our next big game update, which will add significant improvements and introduce some of the most requested features.
That means stuff like the optional ability to skip dialogue faster, bypass cutscenes or reduce those pesky gibberish voices, which should please the speedrunners among us. We’ll also be adding a sprinkling of design polish throughout the adventure and by popular request, changes to how the camera operates (gif the image on this page a look).
The Nintendo Switch version doesn’t have a set release date yet.
