Summary:

Begin in large hub area aboard a pirate ship that has become Yooka and Laylee's adopted home. It has 'Bat Ship Crazy' painted across it.

Butterflies: Eat with Yooka's tongue for health, or collect to refill your power meter. Yooka's roll uses up the power meter... i.e. you can't roll forever like with Kazooie's Talon Trot.

200 quills are scattered across the world, spread across race circuits and along minecart tracks etc.

'Tokens' (Playtonic Coins?) unlock 8 multiplayer arcade games. Once unlocked they can be accessed from main menu and support up to 4 players.

Play Tonics must be earned by achievement-style challenges (e.g. kill 100 baddies); They are optional, so apparently not integral to completing the game. One reduces the power consumption of Yooka's roll, another lets you collect distant quills with Yooka's tongue etc.

Ghost Writers: they all behave differently. One hides, one attacks you, one needs to be chased and caught etc.

Unlocking a world gives you a free move from Trowzer; you can also buy additional moves via quills.

Tribalstack Tropics
(Jungle opening area: I'm unsure if this is the hub area with the pirate ship; the article was a tiny bit unclear)

Transformation is a plant that lets you speak to flora that otherwise ignore you.

Spitting a 'Splash Berry' at a rain cloud creates a waterfall that fills the riverbed below, thus opening new areas. Spitting a 'Frost Berry' will freeze the river and create a racecourse across the ice.

Laylee's sonar blast move triggers invisible platforms to reach to areas.

Nice, thanks!

This picture appears to show one of the 'invisible' platforms you need to use Laylee's sonar beam to trigger. It appears to be some sort of arial obstacle course where you must hover through the hoops and trigger the invisible platforms mid-air before you fall to your death?

Guys. Posting these Screenshots online is against forum rules and even against Laws.

You have to pay for them so please don't post them here!

Edit: Gaven and Andy saw them...

Hi all,

Glad you're all enjoying the new info, but please don't post magazine scans on here. I know you're all keen to see the new screens and details, but posting scans is the equivalent to Edge posting a torrent of our game - a bit illegal!

They need to make a living too. Please buy the magazine - it's only £3.99 on the App Store :)

Oops.

I subscribed to Edge yesterday, but the digital version still hasn't been released yet... Still waiting.
(On Android).

"Bat Ship Crazy"

Nintendo probably would've censored that joke.
