The only thing I would love now is to have my backer code the day PRE-DOWNLOAD starts that way I just have to download a bit of information on luanch day!

But if as backers we could get a code like the ones given for review copies early... OH MY KING JINGALING that would be so awesome!

Yes, please. I don’t know much about digital distribution, but that doesn’t sound impossible either!

Thanks for the heads up. I'm loving my Switch more and more.

Sounds very possible to me specially how YouTube channels like GameXplain that have bashed the game previously might end up getting a review copy a week before launch.

Oh that would be neat if they could get a code for the Switch version. Maybe they’ll have other opinions on it if Playtonic really put as much effort in it as they claim.

I'll snap it up at some point on Switch.

I do think they missed the bus coming after the impossibly impressive Super Mario Odyssey, but that's just the way it goes.

I hope they do get a different opinion this time around too, because they have a very strong impact on the general audience.

I just hope they do play the entire game this time instead of the "I haven't played it all but here are my thoughts".

I wonder if they fixed Yooka having two tongues, and if they put the Yooka-Laylee Rap into the start of the Switch game like in Donkey Kong 64.

^ Would love that if they did.

On Mario Odyssey — I wonder if it may have whet people’s appetites for this sort of game. Personally playing it makes me more excited about titles like Yooka and A Hat in Time

I just checked the Australian Nintendo Switch eShop and Yooka-Laylee is listed under the "Coming Soon" section with a price of $60 (Australian dollars) and the option to pre-order it, plus there is a new trailer video (or at least, it was new to me) set to David Wise's Jungle theme music. :D

Guess that’s the very first Switch Trailer they put out.

I can't wait for the switch port to come out physically, those cartridges are probably more durable than any of the other systems' discs (and it'll look cute next to n64 cartridges).

Update!

As usual, Kickstarter backer game codes will be distributed via BackerKit, so please keep an eye out for emails and check your spam folder. We are currently awaiting receipt of the many thousands of game codes from Nintendo, and as soon as we receive them they will be dispatched to your inbox immediately.

Backer game codes will allow you to pre-load Yooka-Laylee on your Nintendo Switch ahead of the game’s official release on December 14. More importantly, you’ll be able to play the game immediately as well!

The Playtonic team personally handled development on Switch and spent many months adding significant optimisations, plus dozens of game updates to ensure that this version lives up to your expectations. We hope you enjoy it – and thanks again for your support!


(They also included some fan art by the designers.)

Im so happy with the decision of giving backers the ability to not just predownload the game but to play it inmediatly after downloading!

Glad to see something like that implemented as a backer benefit!

Props to Playtonic for making this happen!

Let's hope backers DO receive their codes before the official release on Thursday.
I kind of have a bad feeling about it, but let's hope that my gut isn't right. :)

I have the same feeling, as I think Nintendo will be really controlling with when they deliver the codes so that it won't leave much (if any) time for Playtonic to get the codes out early to backers.

I don't mind either way as I will be waiting until my days off work to play it, but I hope backers who do want it early are able to get it before general release.

It would be kind of sad if Nintendo backers would be the very last people who can play the game... :(

Guess I was worrying for nothing. :)

Let's play (FINALLY)! :D
