Yooka-Laylee is getting a collector's box with a new statue


No game included

Yooka-Laylee has been a bit of a contentious game for many. While diehard fans of Rare’s classic 3D platformers are in love with the title, a lot of people have complained about the antiquated design choices that developer Playtronic took with creating the game. I honestly didn’t care either way, not having much in the way of nostalgia for Rare’s N64 days.

That being said, I figured a collector’s edition for the game would have been a part of the Kickstarter campaign all those years ago. While the exclusion of such a package is being remedied, I’m still a little baffled this new edition doesn’t include the game. Coming from seller Project Triforce, the Yooka-Laylee Collector-Boxie will be retailing for $59.99 and includes a statue of the duo along with concept art cards, pins and a keychain.

Since this isn’t an official Playtronic release, I suppose that explains the absence of the game. This is also probably more for fans that already own the game, but it would have been nice to get a download code for your platform of choice. Either way, that statue looks super nice and its cool to see a collector’s package release after the game was a bonafide hit instead of before.
