Multiplayer Madness Unveiled for Yooka-Laylee!

The upcoming PlayStation 4 platformer isn't exactly breaking new ground, but it's been so long since we've played a Banjo-Kazooie-esque sandbox romp that we can't wait to take Playtonic's love letter for a spin. They control the Bee Team, which can grab quills, collect and store butterflies for Yooka to eat when low on health or energy, and can even stop traps from triggering. However, the co-op only works with two players and the second player will only be able to pick up collectibles. Yooka-Laylee will include eight unique multiplayer arcade games, all playable at the "dated dino's" venue.

Playable in both single-player mode or with up to four players in local multiplayer, these 8 unique competitive games are created to channel the heyday of couch multiplayer, when "lag" meant forgetting what time of day it was when your mates eventually switched off and stumbled home. Featuring a similar line-up of mini-games hopefully Yooka-Laylee has learned from past mistakes. And if there is ever a lack of friends on your couch, you can tackle the arcade games solo in a quest to climb the leaderboards. People who pre-order a digital copy or physical version from Amazon or GAME will receive a copy of the Yooka-Laylee Toybox.
