Yooka-Laylee Switch Release Held Up By Engine Problems

Playtonic promises it’s “nearly there.”

Yooka-Laylee[2] still doesn’t have a release date for Nintendo Switch because of engine issues. On Kickstarter[3], Playtonic touched on the team’s problems bringing the action-adventure game to the hybrid system. While the developer promises it’s “nearly there” with the Switch version of Yooka-Laylee, there are tech difficulties delaying a set timeframe for launch.

“… We’ve encountered some final technical hurdles and had been waiting for the arrival of Unity 5.6 in order to fix them,” Playtonic said. “Although this has now been released, it has unfortunately introduced other issues which we are working with Unity to resolve before we can submit to Nintendo and lock in our release timeline.” The spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie came out on other platforms in April.

Originally planned for Wii U, Yooka-Laylee was moved over to Nintendo Switch[4] back in December. “We understand the frustration that it’s taken so long to get the game in your hands, but we hope that you understand that we’re working as fast as we can and want the game to perform as well as it possibly can on Switch,” Playtonic added. “Once these remaining issues are resolved we hope to finally be able to commit to and share a launch date.” For more on the game, be sure to check out IGN’s review of Yooka-Laylee[5].
