Yooka-Laylee is one of the hottest games to come out of a Kickstarter campaign, particularly because of its ties to classic 3D platforming games like Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country. While the game is still in development and not expected to release until next year, a brand new character has been revealed today via interviews with developers.
Rextro Sixtyfourus purposefully has an old-school, low-poly style design. He is meant to evoke characters from other platforming titles and his role in the game is to guard an arcade machine hidden in each level that features retro challenges. Rextro was one of the first characters designed for the game, but his reveal was kept separate from the initial Kickstarter campaign.
