It's a real credit to Playtonic Games that Yooka-Laylee seems so authentic. Drop the polygon count and resolution of this trailer and it'd look like a Nintendo 64 game, which is what the developer's aiming for, of course. This brand new Gamescom 2016 video shows off some of the environments you can expect to explore, with the obligatory ice and underwater levels included.
The only concern that we foresee here is the performance – there are clear framerate drops in the trailer, and the Unity engine's yet to play nicely with the PlayStation 4. The dev's got plenty of time to clean things up, though, and we sincerely hope it can. Like, when's the last time that you played a platformer like this on a PlayStation system – Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, maybe?
It's long overdue.
