Oh nice, now I know exactly when to call in sick! Shame about the Wii U version, though. I can understand why they canned it; surely the Switch can handle all that Rarevival goodness.

I'm going to buy a physical Switch copy just for the novelty of having Yooka-Laylee on a cartridge. Wait a minute, what if after you collect some mysterious items in Y-L - you could transfer these items over to its sequel Yooka-Twolee in order to claim a special prize? Just take out your Y-L cart, and quickly insert the Y-T cart in your Nintendo Switch. Or should I say, Stop 'N' Switch.

Glad there's a date. Shame about the Wii U.

What's stopping people from cancelling the order, but keeping the backer exclusive toybox?

Yep I noticed this is technically another delay :) Q1 ends when March ends. At least this is a tiny delay.

HUGE shock to me about the WiiU cancelation. Makes sense that the WiiU would be too weak to handle it. I DO hope they beef the game's frame rate up a bit now. But the WiiU had to be a decently large chunk of all backers, due to people wanting to be "Nintendo Faithful" due to nostalgia.

I'm leaning towards buying a Switch ANYWAY but I have to imagine that many of the more casual but nostalgic backers only own a WiiU and a junker laptop that won't run games.

Will be interesting to see how it plays out, hope there's transparency on those numbers in the future. They don't owe it to us or anything, but it would be interesting to see the effects of the decision.

Of all the news and info they just released, this is the only thing that upsets me :( March is the longest month to get through and now it'll be even longer. Blaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

But I will work through this and hopefully get a Switch in the meantime and switch to Switch!

It's a bit later than I thought, but that gives me time to play other games/get burned out on Overwatch.
