Yooka-Laylee just closed EGX with a panel about the game, it had a pretty unexpected surprise too.
Playtonic Games have just announced that Shovel Knight will be guest starring in Yooka-Laylee. The developer approached Yacht Club Games when Team17 floated the idea of a guest character in the game.
Take a look at the announcement here:
Boy, does Shovel Knight get around. This is his 14th announced guest appearance in a game. But hey, Shovel Knight is great, so why not? He could be in every video game for all I care.
