Remember that project that was touted as the spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie? Well, some of the heads of that series have banded together to finally reveal that Project Ukelele is in fact called… Yooka-Laylee.
Gosh. Even that hyphen is giving me a good, nostalgic vibe.
IGN revealed that the two cute characters are Yooka, a chameleon, and Laylee, a bat. They were both designed by Steve Mayles, the artist behind Banjo, Kazooie and many of the modern Donkey Kong family. It's not hard to see the similarities.
There is a tiny bit of Gameplay to gawk at in this news piece:
The game is hitting Kickstarter today, so you'll be able to get in on the ground floor of Playtonic's first outing. You can actually pick up the game for £10/$15 which seems totally fair if the game is of any sizable length.
