Yooka-Laylee isn’t just offering 3D platforming action but multiplayer support as well. By visiting one of the NPC’s in the game world, you can take on optional mini games alone or with some buddies. Similar to the mini-games from Donkey Kong 64 or the wealth of modes present in Conkers Bad Fur Day (N64 version), you will have a large selection of modes to pick from.
One such mode is called ‘Glaciators’ and you can see the mode in action via the above video captured by IGN. It looks like fun and I encourage you watch the above video to learn more about the modes gameplay.
