What, you're not friends with a sentient cannon?
Today Playtonic Games, the developer behind the upcoming 'Banjo-Kazooie' spritual successor 'Yooka-Laylee,' released a "character parade" video for the game, revealing a whole cast of unique characters and a cameo from one of indie gaming's star children, Shovel Knight.
Beyond the chameleon/bat title combo, 'Yooka-Laylee' will be home to characters like Trowzer, the snake that wears pants for some reason; Dr. Quack, a duck stuck in a gumball machine; and Kartos, an animate mine cart. And that doesn't even touch the rapid-fire reveal of yet-unnamed characters like a pogo stick knight and a skeleton that seems super chill about the fact that his lower half is being boiled into some sort of broth.
Of course, the real reveal of the video was the Shovel Knight cameo. Although his role and the extent of his appearence isn't really discussed in the video, at least it seems like these indie platformers are getting along.
'Yooka-Laylee' is set to release early next year. You can catch the "character parade below."
