I agree, it works fantastically in BotW!
We've already played the Banjo games, and we know that Yooka-Laylee is heavily based on that style... all I'm saying is that if they released a patch for Kazooie which made it so you could only talon trot for a short while before having to stop and recharge, I'd be pissed. Running shouldn't be a reward in this type of game, it's just a means of getting to where you need to go with less frustration.
In fact I think the stamina in BotW might well be better if it only existed for climbing.
But anyway! This is all just my anxious mind, and I've yet to play the full game! Here's hoping it does work for Yooka-Laylee!
