Playtonic Games just recently released the sequel to Yooka-Laylee and they’re already planning on expanding the universe even more. Speaking with 3DJuegos, the studio had the following to say:

I think we’ll keep working on Yooka Laylee in the future. Really, we could work on any kind of game, a racing game like Mario Kart or a shooter like Splatoon. We’ve never intended Yooka and Laylee to be the protagonists of all of our games. On the future, we could make a spin-off with one of the many characters from Yooka Laylee, like Dr. Quack or Dr. Puzz. Being independent lets us follow whatever way we want and the one we think is right.

This is really awesome, as they’re excited to keep making more games alongside spinoffs like Splatoon or Mario Kart. That gives the series the much needed diversification that made LittleBigPlanet, Mario, and Jak & Daxter so great. Sticking to a single genre is fine and all but expanding outside of your shell really gets the creative flows running.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can read our review here.
