New character (artwork) by Kev Bayliss to be revealed today!

Postby Rueckkoppler » Thu Aug 27, 2015 11:24 am

Hey guys!

In today's EDGE magazine, they will reveal a new character that was designed by Kevin Bayliss - which means that we'll finally get new stuff!

Check out Playtonics Twitter account for the announcement. Somebody else tweeted about this, too. But I don't know right now if it was Kev, Grant, Steve or someone else.

Did they say character art or just new art in general? It would probably be the one that they were working on when they were on TV.

Where did you get the idea that they will reveal a new character in today's EDGE magazine Rueckkoppler? The tweet only mentioned new Yooka-Laylee artwork:

Got the image of the concept character from my digital edge of the Edge issue. It's an early concept of an NPC -

I love that Skeleton guy, new Mumbo?
Also, I'm glad Yooka is there, not the Tiger, he looks too bold.

So, the new character is a skeleton girl that will appear as an NPC in Yooka-Laylee. I like the way Kevin Bayliss drew the character, being all happy even when she gets grilled on a camp fire. But without any further information about her to speculate on, it's too early to tell if she just fulfills a small role in the game, or plays some larger part in it.

Was there anything else about Yooka-Laylee in there, or was the artpage the extent of it?

That art page with all the characters is beautiful. Look at how vibrant, colourful and interesting the characters we've seen are. Big props to Kev and Steve!

The skeleton girl is great. Yes, she can't walk, but we don't know if she can't move. I mean, Trowzer doesn't look like he can move either, but where there's a will there's a way...

I reckon she might be the one who transforms Yooka and Laylee. You don't need to walk anywhere to do that -- just look at Mumbo and Humba.
