Playtonic Games has encountered some “technical hurdles” in bringing their 3D character platformer Yooka-Laylee to Nintendo Switch.
In a post on the developers website, Playtonic assured fans that development is “very nearly there”, and that the studio had been awaiting the arrival of the Unity 5.6 update to resolve some of their issues.
Unfortunately, the Unity engine update the studio was waiting for caused additional problems. Playtonic is now working with Unity to resolve those issues, after which they will submit the game to Nintendo’s certification process and determine the final release date.
Playtonic goes on to say that they understand any frustration prospective players have, and reiterate that the team is working as fast as they can to finish development.
Are you looking forward to finally get your hands on Yooka-Laylee? Let us know!

Brian Barnett has loved video games ever since his uncle Jimmy introduced him to them at the ripe old age of five. His wife, Audrey, was also introduced to video games by her uncle, lending credence to Brian’s theory that behind every gamer, there is a cool uncle.
Since playing Super Mario Bros. on the NES, Brian has had a passion for Nintendo games. The first thing he did when he started earning money was save up and buy himself a Game Boy, and they quickly became inseparable. Through the years, this led to his special love of portable game consoles, so the release of the Switch is the perfect storm of Nintendo action he has been waiting for.
In addition to his gaming obsession, Brian enjoys playing drums, writing and listening to music, and hosting a weekly video game and nerd culture podcast.
He is an extrovert, and loves talking about and playing games with others, so let him know if you want to team up and play together!
