With No New Banjo at E3 2015, Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter Concludes With $3.2M
Yooka-Laylee will now be much greater in scope compared to the original pitch.
Yooka-Laylee was first unveiled at the end of April, when developer Playtonic was asking for about $260,000 in crowdfunding. That target was surpassed in less than an hour, and it's gone on to become one of the most highly funded games in Kickstarter history.

Due to raising so much more than its initial funding target, a number of stretch goals have been met that will see the game's scope expand greatly. These range from new multiplayer modes to an orchestral score to free DLC for backers.
In addition to Kickstarter, Playtonic has been accepting backer funds through Paypal, which it will continue to do for now. This means the actual total that's been raised is higher than the $3.28 million Kickstarter lists, though keep in mind that figure doesn't factor in Kickstarter's cut (five percent) and payment processing fees.
The last new Banjo-Kazooie game was the Xbox 360's Nuts & Bolts, which was somewhat of a departure from the earlier games. The only news involving Banjo was that Banjo-Kazooie, Tooie, and Nuts & Bolts will be included in the Rare Replay compilation coming to Xbox One.
