I have been thinking, for the entire time of this generation, that we have been missing Mascot Platformers. There have been very few games directed towards our younger player base that have the charm and gameplay styling of titles like Spyro the Dragon and even the Mario games of the world.
This year saw the release of Team 17’s YookaLaylee which seems to be indicating a revival of this missing genre, along side Naughty Dog remastering the Crash Bandicoot original trilogy. Microsoft announced one of many exclusives last night with a beautifully stunning platforming title called Super Lucky’s Tale.
The Game is based round an adorable little fox who wears a little cape and goes on an adventure filled with strange and interesting creatures while collecting Gold Coins. Originally an Oculus Rift title, the announcement at the Microsoft E3 Press conference was a shock to many, but a welcome shock it was.
