I kind of guessed Yooka's species, never thought the other guy, Laylee, would be a bat, though... Also, nice punny name, even though Banjo-Kazooie isn't a punny name... Heck, Yooka-Laylee even sounds a lot like Banjo-Kazooie!
Bit disappointed that Yooka isn't a girl... Or that neither of them are girls... And I'm sure they have differing personalities, but really, these are two neat-looking characters, but nothing can quite capture the same design, look, and dynamic between Banjo and Kazooie... I mean, Kazooie lives in Banjo's backpack, and Banjo has a bear of yellow shorts for no reason. I find it a BIT hard to top. Then again, there's still time for adjustments, even though I guess they look fine already.
Speaking of which, while I like Yooka's look, something's... off... about Laylee's design. Maybe it's his big nose, or why he hangs out on Yooka's head for some reason... Oh, I'm sure it'll be explained in-game, but still... Gonna take some getting used to for this one.
