It looks like Yooka-Laylee will launch in April

Pre-order to get Toybox demo on console.

Long-awaited adventure Yooka-Laylee will launch on 11th April 2017, according to a new Xbox store page which Eurogamer spotted pop up online tonight.

You can pre-order the game now for £34.99 (around double the price Kickstarter backers paid) and get its Toybox demo, which was previously available to backers on PC.

The British-built platformer has had a long road to development since its hugely-successful £2.1m Kickstarter campaign back in June 2015.

With the pre-order page live, we expect an official release date announcement in the very near future.

The pre-order page lists Yooka-Laylee as having a co-op mode and local multiplayer for up to four players.

We've been tracking Yooka-Laylee since its initial reveal - we played it a few months back and found it was shaping up nicely despite its nudge back into next year.
