    I don't care what anyone says. I'm looking forward to this. DKC is one of my favorite series. I haven't played Banjo-Kazooie yet. Somehow that one evaded me during the N64 days, even though I played a lot of N64.

    I think the Yooka-Laylee gameplay in the clip looks very nice. The graphics and environments are appealing, and the movement seems fluid. I'm sure the final game will be just as charming as the classic Rare stuff.

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to this game as well. There will be a Kickstarter soon if for this to add more things to the game that fans want in there. These are all lead ex-Rare developers so I know this is in good hands.

    NICE!!!
    Those characters look so charming, like in the good old days, but with a modern twist. The art style is really appealing and screams to be on Nintendo consoles, although a PC version is a must! I'm really curios to see more gameplay mechanics and what is it borrowing from B&K
    Even tho I don't put money on Kickstarter, I will definitely buy this if it comes out.

    I've been anticipating when they'd reveal the characters, and I'm super glad with the results! I''ll definitely be backing this, preferably at whatever the Soundtrack is.

    Also, 'Project Ukulele' was, like, super clever a name.

    I'll get hyped when I see gameplay. For now, it looks promising.

    So does anyone else get genesis era sonic vibes looking at Yooka, or is it just me?

    The way it is standing in the artwork and has that expression on its face, yes it does resemble classic Sonic.

    Really hoping either Yooka or Laylee is a girl. Or both. Anyways, can't wait for the game and I am glad it is primary coming to PC.

    I think Yooka is male and Laylee is female. But who knows, maybe they are both female or both male.

    Like Banjo-Kazooie, hm? I would be perfectly fine with that, especially since I like Batzooie's design and colors the most. But I am actually thinking that Yooka is the female one, judging solely by the design and animations.

    They haven't said yet officially, but their Twitter is hinting that one of them is female.

    So adorable. Can't wait for this be shown tomorrow. I might actually kickstarter this the moment it goes up. :>

    As for the characters, i like how they look and can't wait to see what more there's to them. As for their gender? Anything works for me. It's something that i personally put very little importance to. Whether or not it's a female or male lead, i'm going to enjoy this.

    Maybe even try draw something, i feel a bit inspired by this. ^^

    Assuming ungendered characters are "male by default" is a very silly mentality, but it is also very common, unfortunately.
