3D platformers never sunk their hooks into the gamer collective as deep as their 2D counterparts, but Rare's Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie were "tooie" of the best, and Yooka-Laylee looks to pick up where they left off.

Playtonic came to Gamescom with another trailer showing off more gameplay. Although Yooka-Laylee was delayed to early 2017, the Toy Box—a sandbox-type area where you're free to mess around with the game's controls and mechanics—went out to Kickstarter backers in late July.
