SmashPad’s Most Anticipated Games of 2017

3.) Yooka-Laylee (PS4, X1, Switch, PC)

“The Nintendo 64 was notorious for fetch quest platformers in the fifth generation of gaming, but once that time passed, we haven’t really seen anymore… and I miss it. Yooka-Laylee is sort of a love letter to those Rareware classics, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the full game.” – Danreb Victorio

“If we’re never going to get a new Banjo-Kazooie game, this will more than fill that void. Playtonic looks to be capturing the spirit of those games while also modernizing it in sensible ways.” – Filippo Dinolfo

“What was once an abundant type of game, we’re finally getting an open world platformer. While they can never replace Banjo-Kazooie, this one is shaping up to be worthy of sharing the genre.” – Christian Paraguya
