Secret Pirate Treasure (possible spoilers)

Today i came across a "secret pirate treasure" collectable. This collectable is not listed in the totals menus. I got an achievement for collecting it, the achievement was previously secret. Yooka also hinted that there may be more pirate treasure In the other world's.

I haven't been using any online guides and I haven't even looked at the achievements so I had no idea of the things existence. You lot may already be in the know.

Anyway, I was wondering what they were for? Do they have a purpose? Are they just extra collectables with no use? Will they be used as a stop n swop?

They have no purpose yet. Maybe for the next Yooka game, who knows.

I thought it was odd that nothing happened after you collect them all. I thought there would be some sort of explanation as to what they were or at least something.

As far as I can tell outside the trophies/achievements related to them, they have no purpose or impact on anything.

Pointless, how so? You know a computer can look for information in other files right? It would be trivially easy for the next game to check your Yooka Laylee save folder for the presence of those pirate treasures.

I'm bumping this topic because I just went and found all the pirate treasure in the PC version of the game. I intend to do the same for the Switch version, once I get far enough into it. I'm also thinking about completing the game 100% now that I've had some time to cool off from my initial frustrations with the game.

Incidentally, I was wondering if Playtonic could update the "Totals" sub-menu with something that shows you've collected the Pirate Treasures. They did the same thing for Stop 'n Swap back in Banjo-Kazooie, even though they were supposed to be secret, too.

I hope there's a cool pay-off for these things... and I like the idea that there might be an ongoing pirate theme with the Yooka-Laylee series, should their be more games after this. I also like that one fan-theory that V.I.L.E. might actually be a group of pirates. I just think pirates are cool.

I found the 3rd world one first, then the 4th world one, and so figured there was one in each world and went searching for them all. I thought they might have had something to do with the Toybox secret so I was disappointed to go back to

But I also did notice there is the same looking skull and bones splayed out on the ground in one spot in each level that looked suspicious - especially the one in the little wall alcove in the tower leading up to Rampo in Tribalstack Tropics - so I wonder if they will have something to do with the pirate treasures in the future (eg. those spots with the skulls might open up into secret areas that are unlocked with the pirate treasure from that world, if found).
Here are two I was able to get a quick screenshot of, the other three I can't remember off the top of my head where they were in the levels, but I'm sure I saw the same skeleton once in each world.

Spoiler:


I have a feeling that the pirate treasure will come into play with that secret in Galleon Galaxy.

But how would that work? Unless there's a website involved.
