Yooka-Laylee official artwork without logo

Despite having immense popularity during the earlier console generations, collect-a-thons have unfortunately become nearly extinct these past few years. The situation is thankfully improving nowadays, what with Yooka-Laylee and A Hat in Time both managing to find a decent amount of success and a fairly wide audience.

Perhaps decent is a bit of an understatement here given that Yooka-Laylee developer Playtonic has now announced that their bat & lizard combo has managed to sell over one million copies! They didn't go into any detail about where most of the sales have come from, but given that Yooka-Laylee is available across all major platforms, I think it's fair to say that all of them must've contributed a fair chunk.

I can only hope this means we'll be getting a Yooka-Laylee 2 at some point in the future, because even though I found the original to be somewhat flawed, it was still a great deal of fun to mess around with. As such, a sequel with slightly better level design and tighter controls could not only live up to Banjo-Kazooie's legacy, but perhaps even surpass it. That's certainly what I'd like to see anyway, as the world sure could use more lighthearted adventures that still pose a bit of a challenge when it comes to collecting "all of the things!"

Should anything more come up I'll make sure to let you know, but until then you might want to head on over to Steam as Yooka-Laylee is currently on a 70% discount. Enjoy!
