From the shreds of evidence we've gotten so far (they thought it would be done soon in November, we've seen plenty of screenshots and video of what looks to be a completed product, in the Moodymaze Marsh commentary video Daley thought they'd be able to give us a sneak preview of the tonic in the build version of the game) I would hazard a guess that they're having trouble getting the tonic working on the Switch version specifically, and they figure making everyone wait for it will generate less anger than round 2 of "Switch owners are second-class citizens and must wait several additional months for content".

Be nice to get some sort of confirmation one way or the other, though.

Hey all!

Currently, the 64-bit tonic is still in testing and there is nothing we can do to speed that process up. It's taking a while because it needs to be tested on all platforms and we are hoping for a simultaneous release.

We have a nice little preview of it coming up in the Galleon Galaxy Developer Commentary, which we will be releasing next Tuesday at best, Wednesday at worst!

Thanks for the patience. We're not deliberately holding back, we just have to follow the appropriate process. There seems to be disagreement on how we announce things. Some want us to reveal things as early as possible, and others say they would rather we stayed quiet until we had a solid date. We can't please everyone! :)

I think option A is a good choice.

Please try not to use the word "soon" I think it gives the wrong idea of what to expect.

A good example of option A could be the Smash Bros Ultimate DLC announcement. They always say something like "we can confirm that Smash Bros DLC is in development, it may take several months before we can show it tho"

To do a count down to a release, would actually require, you know, RELEASING it when the count down ends. Completely misleading and getting some peoples Hope's up. It's out for Switch and PC only. Nothing for xbox, nothing for playstation, who knows when their versions will come.

Yooka Laylee was released in April 2017
It's been two years and now they release a filter that was supposed to be in the game at launch.
I look forward to the orchestral soundtrack in 2021 and I look forward to the DLC in 2023.

Did the PS4 version ever receive the filter? If not, is it "coming soon" or has it been scrapped?
