I never really thought that these changes would be something technical. But all in all, I consider it possible to change the color of the clothes, as I explained.

Btw, in the current issue of the Playstation magazine, Gavin Price explained how Yookas abilities might/will work. He brought up the example of a windy area, in which Yooka eats some kind of rock, in order to become rock-textured, heavier and slower as well. That way, he can pass through such an environment.

That feels kind of reaching just find an excuse to put clothes on the character. It doesn't really matter as long as the game is fun and characters have fun personalities. The lack of clothing will be the least of everyone's worries. It's the way Playtonic wants it, just like the way Rare wanted Banjo to have shorts.

Maybe Yooka's colors are the "transformation recognizable" part. We've only seen Keiths, which are blue, and while I'm not saying there's no green enemies or other animals, maybe green is not as common by design choice.

"Hey! I've never seen a green Keith before!"
"Um...*gulp* My diet is high in... vegetables?"
"Now I know you're lying! We don't eat veggies! I'll take you down!"

Or that's the idea, basically.

I don't think either of them need any clothes. It really feels normal for them being narkes.

Those powerups I've mentioned don't involve special clothes like you want, just his natural ability. Like they've done for Kazooie.

I'm just not sure clothes as anything to his character design. We can't know until we play the game what his personality is like, but he's pretty distinct. Banjo needed shorts and a backpack to be recognizable as Banjo and not a genetic cartoon bear. Yooka has unique coloration, he stands out as is. Clothes wouldn't break the game or the mechanics, but from a design standpoint Yooka is a-okay to me.

Yooka-Laylee should be its own game with its own feeling. It shouldn't try to be like Banjo-Kazooie, it shouldn't try to be like Donkey Kong, it should be like Yooka-Laylee.

I mentioned in my first post here that I think a little shirt would greatly benefit Yooka's design. Not because I think he's lacking- but because I think it would serve as a great homage to Banjo's "shorts only" motif.
