Nearly two years after it was unveiled through a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, Playtonic Games has announced that development on its retro-styled 3D platformer, Yooka-Laylee, has finally reached completion. Moreover, the company has shared more details on how backers will be able to make any final adjustments to their platform choice.

Billed as a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, Yooka-Laylee was initially announced for Wii U, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but some unexpected snags in development led to the cancellation of the Wii U version. Fortunately, Playtonic will be bringing the platformer to Nintendo’s upcoming Switch instead, though it remains unclear if the Switch version will be releasing alongside the others on April 11.

Backers who’d like to change which version of Yooka-Laylee they receive will be able to do so through a BackerKit survey “very soon.” In addition, those who select either the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One versions will be able to upgrade to a physical release for an additional cost; the Switch version, however, will be distributed to backers as a digital code. Wii U backers will also have the option of requesting a refund if they should so choose.

Which platform will you be playing Yooka-Laylee on? Let us know in the comments!
