Why does Overwatch just look so much more appealing than Splatoon?

Cause you're a jerk face.

Yooka-Laylee info from EDGE.

The hub world is large.

The hub world contains Yooka and Laylee's "adopted home."

That home is a wrecked pirate ship called "Bat Ship Crazy."

The first level is a tribal/jungle level called "Tribalstack Tropics." This is the area we've been seeing with the floating mossy pillars and stuff.

The second level is not named in the article but is the ice/castle area we've seen in a few shots.
The team were worried about Banjo-Kazooie gibber-speak initially because they had forgotten how to record it, but Sutherland and Kirkhope found a new way to do it and now gibber-speak is officially confirmed.

Price found the fact that each special move in BK&T had its own collectable distracting from the games' core conceit so now all moves drain from the same power bar.

Butterflies are key to both regaining health when Yooka eats them and regaining power when Yooka collects their butter. I may be reading this part wrong though. It's written weirdly.

Ghosts reside in each world and they all behave differently. One hides, one fights, one needs to be chased, ect.

There are exactly 200 quills in each level. These are currency to be paid to Trowzer to unlock moves.
Quills can be everywhere, but it seems extra emphasized that they are found along race tracks and mine cart tracks.

Tokens can be used to unlock the 8 multiplayer arcade games in Rextro's arcade.

The arcade games are accessed from the main menu.

Tonics are the collectable the give Yooka and Laylee RPG-like enhancements.

Tonics aren't found as much as "achieved." Two examples given are "defeating 100 enemies" and "collecting at least one of every collectable type."

Examples of the effects of tonics are "reducing the power consumption of Yooka's roll" and "letting Yooka use his tongue to collect quills."
Tonics must be physically retrieved from "Vendi." She is a sentient vending machine and her image is included in the issue. Let me just tell you: "Hall of Famer" written all over her.

"Lady Leap-a-Lot, one of the Knights of Hamelot," is a pig on a pogostick and also has her image in the issue. Another winner.
The first transformation in the game for Tribalstack Tropics is "Bush form." There is an image of it in the issue. Yooka becomes the flower petals and Laylee becomes the stem. They have seemingly merged in their transformation.
The "Ladybird army" is a thing. There is no explanation for what it is. There is a picture of one such member.

Bandits used to look like slot machines.

Dr. Puzz in her full-body shot is essentially an Inkling with a fishbowl.

This drawing of Roysten makes me much more into the thought that it is Roysten. The flat face does it.
One of Capital B's minion bees are pictured, but not officially named in any capacity.

Dr. Quack's whole situation is a gumball machine with wheels.
At one point, you can feed a "splash berry" to a raincloud which generates a waterfall and forms a river.

Using a "Frost Berry" freezes the river which lets you walk on it.
Pagies are used to both open new worlds and expand old ones. This can be done in any order.
Opening a new world nets you a free move from Trowzer as thanks for helping him expand his business.
Fall damage exists and is proportional to fall distance.
There is an ice slide at some point.

Flying is a "late-game" move while Yooka's roll is "early-game."
Price plans for a "New Game +" mode where all moves are unlocked at the beginning of the game. This is said to be an aid for speedrunners.
Laylee has a sonar shot that emits translucent waves. These waves can solidify previously invisible platforms for Yooka to cross.
World 2 is Dean Wilson's baby and he was inspired by Disney's Frozen.
Price seems to imply that not a whole lot of information about the game will be given beyond this much before the game's release.
Laylee can help Yooka glide.

Transformations require a collectable. It is not stated what.

SUPER MARIO MAKER LEVELS:

  • SMB Mix-Up! (1AB2-0000-0047-5A7D)
  • Storm the Castle (77BD-0000-00E0-A9C0)

Just learned kind of a fun fact. Apparently my son and Dragon Quest share the same birthday. Tomorrow DQ turns 30 and he turns 10.
