Just in case anyone didn't see it mentioned on twitter, Playtonic had a Reddit AMA today.

The link to it is below.

I found it particularly interesting that they had wanted to make it so you could jump through the rextro arcade screens like a portal to enter the mini games. Too bad they weren't able to get that working, that would have been neat.

Sounds like we can finally expect to hear something about things like the 64 bit tonic in the coming year.

A couple of things we can deduce from the answers:

* Sounds like they already are planning for their second game.
* It will likely be a different genre than YL.
* They have a very close relationship with Nintendo and Unity. This could be a hint of things to come.

I imagine Playtonic learned a boatload about developing for Switch: that can only be good for Switch owners!

They also indicated that they have been listening to tons of feedback, if we couldn't already tell by the post-launch patch. I hope they have lots of good stuff for the sequel. It does seem they are already well into developing another game, if not even several more. That may well be why it seemed NOTHING was happening during Switch development: it wasn't that they had everyone working on the Switch port, it's that they only had a few team members reserved to keep doing Yooka-Laylee while the others were hard at work with new games. At least, that's what I get out of it all.

Too bad there isn't a date for the switch cartridge, but I'm glad to see from the replies that there is demand for it.

Aside from what was written above, they would consider doing a Donkey Kong Country game if Nintendo approached them. What else... the HUD of Yooka-Laylee is in its respective full resolutions (720p & 1080p).
