The wait is really, really ugly for Nintendo fans now. I was initially excited about the Day One release promise, but didn't work out obviously. I intended to not spoil myself too much about the game, but just by watching reviews, I know the theme of every world so far. Not that there's no true reasons for why things are as they are, but my excitement is down to zero right now and I'm starting to hate the wait.
What I wish for Playtonic? They should learn a lot from developing their first game. Re-think why we really loved the Banjo games, because
But maybe that was a budget or time thing. Whatever. They should also consider moving to another engine, maybe Unreal, since the Switch is capable of that now? I just wish that they'll bring that one game (I already wish for a Yooka-Laylee sequel without having played the first game) that really showes them all. They as a studio didn't earn much credibility in my eyes (just yet) and this awareness hurts me as a fan at the same time.
I think fans and Playtonic have the same vision on where they should've headed with the game, but the way to this point wasn't the best one.
