UPDATE: The official announcement has been made, and the game will come to the PS4 on April 10th. The Toybox demo can be unlocked as soon as the pre-order has been made, and the price will be £34.99 / $39.99 / €39.99. We have also added a trailer showing the new world, Capital Cashino.
The keen eyes of Eurogamer have spotted an Xbox store page that shows the 3D platformer will be launching on April 10th for £34.99. We are not sure of the exact price for American gamers, but we would guess it is comparable.
It is not uncommon for someone to throw the switch a little too early and spill the beans on a game’s release date. It also lets in a few more details. First, anyone who pre-orders the game will receive the Toybox demo that Kickstarter participants received. The page also shows a co-op and local multiplayer mode. We love our local multiplayer, and Yooka-Laylee will allow up to four players to adventure together.
Once we receive the official announcement, we will put up an update. For now, check out the colorful screenshots in the link, and let us know if you will be picking this up next year.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
