AYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY in on epic thread

EDIT: I LOVE YOU PLAYTONIC :cry:

Edit 2: Just fantastic, Toybox coming in July. It's a spoiler-free standalone world with custom props and the game's collectibles so we can try out how the various elements work.

Capital B is the head of Hivory Towers, and wants to use the pagies to turn the Grand Tomes and all the world's literature into pure profit, somehow.

QuackCorp had two main colleagues, the nefarious Dr. Quack and the multi-limbed Dr. Puzz. It was Dr. Quack (an exo-suit wearing fowl) who sold out to Hivory Towers to attain we assume wealth and power. Dr. Puzz will be doing all of the transformations in YL it seems.

Quills confirmed as a collectible that's traded to buy moves from Trowzer. The order moves are learned in is chosen by the player (careful for soft locks Playtonic ;D). And the Play Tonics are something separate for certain ;)

An energy bar seems to be used to do the various moves and skills, cutting back on some of the collectibles that were found in say Banjo Tooie.

Edit: But if the bee is the main villain, then who is ?

If that face ends up being more than nothing (it could just be nothing), maybe it's a key character in one of the book worlds. Like a Boggy or something.

I love the new logo!

Finally the eyes are gone and a much more representative characteristic of Yooka is present on it!

Am I the only one who is concerned that:
“IF YOU THOUGHT THE CHALLENGES SO FAR WERE TOUGH, WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE MY OUTLOOK FOR Q4 OF THE GAME…”
doesn't rhyme?

CAPITAL B seems te be the main villain and it was confirmed that the main villain of YL would rhyme like Gruntilda...

It was never confirmed the main villain would rhyme. It was being considered, they were also considering other rhythmic approaches (iambic pentameter, etc). Seems like they've gone with "Corporate Speak" and sloganeering instead. It's fine. Rhyming may have been a bit too on-the-nose. Could also be that another character rhymes or something.

I love the design of Capital B as well as the Pagies. Really loving this update, and that ice castle looking world/area looks pretty neat. I also love that shot od Trowzer (who I think will be my favorite character). Love this update. Can't wait to see the Quack Corp. characters.

Top notch stuff.

The game is looking amazing and the character designs for Capital B, Dr. Puzz and Dr. Quack are great! (You can see them in the banjo-box-art-like screenshot)

Okay, so (defined by role):
Gruntilda = Capital B
Klungo = Dr. Quack
Mumbo = Dr. Puzz
Bottles = Trowzer
Banjo & Kazooie = Yooka & Laylee

The full image. Dr Puzz, designed by Ed Bryan, is the octopus up in the top left between Rextro and Kartos. Notice the goldfish (Roysten?) in the fishbowl helmet? I know that will be happy! She will play the role of Mumbo, transforming you into things with her inventions. She's a bit like Sandy from Spongebob now that I think about it!

Dr Quack is on the shoulder of Capital B.

EDIT: Someone posted the full image before me.
