Decided to edit the render with my idea (the one I doodled the other day) for the heck of it, still don't think he needs any clothes but I still think a cape is a good idea at least.

About having an iconic feature for transformations, I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Yooka's tail yet! Maybe all transformations could still have that iconic chameleon tail. I imagine that'd look kinda cute, even xD

I had never even heard of Rango before everyone started saying Rango to the hawiian shirt idea.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I still dig it. I gotta say though now I REALLY hope Yooka changes colors throughout the game.

They look fine without clothes.

I personally don't really have a problem with the way
they look, but something is indeed a tiny bit off.
The character design seems to lack something indeed, but
I am not sure it is clothing. One thing I learned is,
that when so many people are asking for something
related to desgin to be changed, there is often a reason
behind it, but that reason is usually not the one that
they're pointing out to you.

  As Henry Ford put it “If I had asked people what they
wanted, they would have said faster horses.”

  This is the pretty much the same thing. People know
animal characters with clothing (Banjo, Sonic, etc) so
they ask for clothing to change the design. What they
really seem to want is a change that makes them more
memorable and iconic. There are other ways to achieve
this than giving them clothes though. Laylee has a big
red nose for example and that already helps. Yooka has
no such unique feature yet however.

Hmm, I can see why people would have a problem with the lack of clothes/accessories for the main protagonists. Since almost all previous Rareware (Rare Ltd) games had clothes, and/or accessories for the heroes like, Banjo (though not Kazooie), Conker, Donkey Kong, Kameo, etc. Now the main reason why Yooka and Laylee don't have clothes/accessories could be that it's just a design choice on the developers part, without having a specific reason for it.

My second guess is that the developers wanted something original for their new main characters without having them being too similar to their previous main characters designs, and thought that Yooka and Laylee running around butt naked will be hilarious.

Last guess why Yooka and Laylee don't have clothes/accessories could be because they live in the wild instead of living in a house like Banjo & Kazooie, Conker, Donkey Kong, etc do, and so they don't need them. As for the characters designs of Yooka and Laylee, they look fine. Though Laylee could use some fur shading like Conker's bat form has in Conker: Live & Reloaded.

Ugh that scarf thing will remind people too much of Sonic Boom, which was not a very well received game.



And a cape? Really?

It seems you guys can't come up with anything original. So I say keep them naked.

At least Banjo's costume was original for a platformer character.
