Earlier this week, there was a lot of commotion about the ex-RARE developers at Playtonic Games possibly working on the Banjo-Kazooie series again. Sadly, it looks like all that speculation and hearsay was just hogwash.
As many will know, Playtonic Games consists of ex-RARE developers who developed the Banjo-Kazooie series. Nowadays, they’re working on the similarly whimsical Yooka-Laylee series – although some signs could point at them revisiting the bird-and-bear duo!
Due to fan demand, Playtonic Games has promised that the Yooka 64 model from Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair will also be coming to the original game!

The studio behind this 3D platformer shares what it learned from fans when it released this game.
Playtonic Games have finally released the brand new 64-Bit tonic update (that they have been teasing for a long time) today on Nintendo Switch!
Yooka-Laylee is intended as a throwback to the Nintendo 64 collectathons of years gone by. I didn’t play Banjo-Kazooie as a child so maybe I’m not quite the intended audience, but as a fan of the 3D platformer genre, I went into Yooka-Laylee with a cautious optimism. Maybe this game would surprise me!
Limited Run Games continues to produce some wonderful stuff, and its recent physical release of Yooka-Laylee is no exception.
