During the recent Nindies Showcase we saw a new trailer to herald Yooka-Laylee’s upcoming Switch release. The game’s grown quite a bit while maintaining the trademarks of its developers. We’ve now been given a glimpse of Playtonic’s upcoming ice world, now known as Glitterglaze Glacier.

 

 
Some of my favorite bits are Yooka showing off a new ability to illuminate himself in dark areas, the duo’s transformation into a snowplow, and the return of Banjo-Kazooie’s Ice Key. The music is also a standout, capturing the mood of the environment perfectly.

You can check out the trailer shown during the showcase event as well, with a more general, but no less exciting, look at the collection based, duo driven 3D platformer.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
