For those of you greatly anticipating Yooka-Laylee and closely watching its development, Nintendo World Report and GameXplain have some new off-screen footage of the game’s alpha build in action. They also did an interview with a couple of the developers, covering various topics such as the creation of the sound and music for the game.

Watching the new footage, the world of Yooka-Laylee really comes to life through its vibrant colors, character animations, and detailed textures. This combined with the music and sound effects really takes you back to the days of the games that inspired Yooka-Laylee in the first place (games like Banjo Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64). Check out Nintendo World Report’s footage below to see for yourself (I recommend watching both videos below in full-screen mode to really see just how good the game looks):


In addition to the nearly five minutes of game footage above, there is another six minutes of off-screen footage of Yooka-Laylee from GameXplain:



About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
