Yooka-Laylee is a platform game developed by Playtonic Games, a group of former Rare employees. It was released in 2017 for the Playstation 4, XBox one and Nintendo Switch. It is a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie.
Yooka-Laylee received mixed reviews, with critics divided on whether emulating its predecessors was enough to make it a successful game, or whether it was purely trying to capitalise on nostalgia. While most critics agreed that it captured the essence of earlier platformers, they also pointed out technical shortcomings and outdated gameplay.
