Yooka-Laylee is a 3D platform game developed by Team17 that has recently appeared on the Windows Store for Windows 10 devices.

Explore enormous and beautiful worlds 

The game’s initial release was back in April for PC and consoles and while its launch on Microsoft’s own PC storefront was a bit delayed, this is not such a big surprise.

The game is an open-world platformer at its roots and is reminiscent of Rare’s Banjo-Kazooie franchise. In an attempt to capture the traditional feeling of the genre, the game inherited various features from the iconic series, like exploring beautiful worlds full of an unforgettable cast of characters and tons of shiny collectibles.

Interestingly, Yooka-Laylee’s official release on Windows 10 hasn’t been announced yet, but if you browse through the Windows Store you’ll be able to find it there. Its priced at $39.99 and is double the size when compared the Xbox One version at 11.33 GB. Its minimum system requirements are similar to the Steam version, meaning an requirement of an Intel i5-2500 3.3GHz, a NVIDIA GTS450 or and AMD Radeon 6858HD and 1GB of video memory.

Play Anywhere feature missing

Unfortunately, the game lacks support for Play Anywhere, Microsoft’s new initiative to enable cross-platform purchases, saves and multiplayer between the Xbox One and Windows 10. The company announced Play Anywhere support for Yooka-Laylee via Xbox Wire back in April but after that, Microsoft revised the post and told readers the announcement was a mistake.

You can check out the key features of the game, and you can also download it from the Store.
