Speculation: New Yooka-Laylee game reveal this week?

Team 17 are announcing 2 brand new games this week and posted a small photo with cryptic clues. The "17" has honeycombs in it which leads many of us to believe one of their announcements will be Yooka-Laylee 2.

What do you think it will be? What game do you want it to be?

Playtonic has been about bees recently, and then these honey combs show up on the Team17 logo alongside references to a new game...

And notice the subtle use of yellow Switch controllers in the photo for the held last week. Why not green/purple? Yellow controllers are quite unusual (I didn't even know the Switch had yellow controllers until now) -- this is an intentional artistic choice, perhaps foreshadowing something...



We've known from the very beginning that Playtonic set out to create a "Playtonic universe", where every character can star in their own game. I think the yellow controllers may be metaphorical, alluding to the fact that Capital B is going to become controllable...

Without jumping to conclusions, circumstantial evidence is accumulating to suggest a game starring Capital B as the main playable character.

Team 17 confirmed on Twitter earlier that the first of their 2 game announcements is the pixel-art Metroidvania title, Blasphemous. Thankfully, given the motif of the game we can be pretty well certain that it's the one being referenced by the metal band in the hint picture, leaving the honeycombs wide open to be the game we're all waiting for. :D

Holy smokes, you guys.

Not gonna lie; in spite of the positive tone of my last post in this topic, all week I've been bracing myself for the announcement of "Worms: This Time Versus Bees" or "Yoku's Island Express 2: Journey to the Isle of Honey" and trying to let myself down as painlessly as possible.

BUT JUST THIS ONCE, IT'S ACTUALLY THE THING WE WANTED WAAAAAAAAAAAAHEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!

Playtonics tweet means it's definitely a Bee game and its announced tmos. Bring it on.

Can’t wait! I just really hope it’s not a honeycomb themed puzzle/tetris kind of small game, maybe a sequel?? Or a board game like mario party but with Capital B as host?
