Playtonic Games recently wrapped up a highly successful Kickstarter for their Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor, Yooka-Laylee, but now they’re turning to help in an unlikely place. The company today announced that they have partnered with Team17 to help develop and publish Yooka-Laylee.
“From the very start we said that we’d welcome only a partner that could genuinely improve the creation of our game, while respecting the independence and creative autonomy of our development team,” said Gavin Price, Cretive Lead at Playtonic. “Team17’s 25-year industry-leading expertise will significantly benefit Yooka-Laylee in a myriad of ways, not least in expanded localisation, improved QA testing, certification and access to vastly better resources for our team. Working alongside such a strong partner will allow the Playtonic team to focus 100% of our efforts on building the best possible version of Yooka-Laylee for backers and new fans alike.”
