Yooka-Laylee - Capital Cashino Reveal Trailer | PS4.
Hivory Towers is an evil corporation run by the money-and-control-loving Capital B and his scientist assistant, Dr. Quack, who used to run a company known as Quack Corp. before its buy-out by Hivory Towers. After learning of a book known as the One Book that has the power to re-write the universe, Capital B has Quack build a machine known as the Noveliser 64 (a reference to the Nintendo 64) to suck up all the books in the world. Meanwhile, Yooka and Laylee are enjoying the day in Shipwreck Creek renovating their Shipwreck home when Laylee's book (found in the shipwreck), apparently the One Book targeted by Capital B, is sucked away into the nearby device. Its golden Pagies escape, and Laylee, deciding to sell it for a large sum of money, gets Yooka to help her after it. They explore Hivory Towers, collecting Pagies to restore to the book. With the help of Trowzer, a snake salesman who teaches them new transportation and combat abilities, and Dr. Puzz, an ex-Hivory Towers scientist who transforms them into various plants, animals and machines, Yooka and Laylee eventually reach the elevator leading to Capital B's office. Capital B allows them in granted they collect 100 Pagies total. When inside, he reveals it was a trap to refill the Book. Laylee says he will have to take the Pagies from them, and a battle ensues. After Yooka and Laylee win, they begin to question the Capital and Quack. But just then, their friend Blasto the cannon comes for medical aid and accidentally fires at the evil Hivory Towers leaders, knocking them into a nearby book as it locks them inside. Yooka-Laylee is a platform game played from a third-person perspective. The gameplay is similar to that of games in the Banjo-Kazooie series. The player controls two characters that work together to explore their environment, collect items, solve puzzles and defeat enemies. The playable characters are Yooka, a male chameleon, and Laylee, a female bat. During their adventures, Yooka and Laylee explore open worlds contained within magical books and complete challenges to collect "Pagies": golden book pages that act as the main currency in the game. Players can use their Pagies to either unlock new worlds or expand those which have already been unlocked.
Yooka-Laylee was scheduled to be released by Team17 Software Ltd., Team17 Digital Limited and Team 17 on April 5, 2017, on April 11, 2017, on June 5, 2017 and on December 14, 2017.
