Yooka-Laylee Joins the Fray in Brawlout

Brawlout, one of the only games out there to try and put its own spin on Nintendo’s massively successful fighting game formula, has another new combatant tagging-into the fight before the game launches for PS4 and Xbox One later this summer. This time it’s Yooka-Laylee, the lizard-bat duo from Playtonic Games’ mostly successful 3D platformer of the same name

As seen above, Yooka-Laylee has their very own themed stage to throw-down in, and many of their signature combo moves from their own game have been adapted to bring the pain in Brawlout. They don’t appear to be as hard-hitting as some of the other characters available like Juan or Hyper-Light Drifter, but maybe they’ll be the Kirby of the game: plain and unassuming for most, but a nightmare powerhouse in the hands of a master.

Brawlout is available now on Steam and Nintendo Switch, and will launch on August 21 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
