Back during the first Nintendo Switch Nindies presentation in March, it was revealed that Yooka Laylee was indeed coming to the platform come 2017. As of this writing, the game has yet to see a release on the Switch let alone a release date. An update was released by Playtonic Games, the developers behind Yooka Laylee, explaining a few of the hurdles and reasons as to why the game has yet to see a release date. In the update the team explains “The Playtonic team has been working tirelessly to bring Yooka-Laylee to Nintendo Switch and we’re very nearly there (we promise!) However, we’ve encountered some final technical hurdles and had been waiting for the arrival of Unity 5.6 in order to fix them. Although this has now been released, it has unfortunately introduced other issues which we are working with Unity to resolve before we can submit to Nintendo and lock in our release timeline.” It seems as though an announcement regarding the long awaited release date of Yooka Laylee on the Nintendo Switch is not too far off.
