We’ve been keeping an eye on Yoku’s Island Express ever since we first reported on the game’s trailer. Well, the game is now here and to show you even more of what you can expect from the game we have a new launch trailer. If you’re unfamiliar with the 2D platformer crossed with a pinball game, here’s the official description as well as the launch trailer –
Say hello to Yoku the Dung Beetle, a new hero who has arrived on Mokumana Island to relieve the resident pterodactyl postmaster, or Posterodactyl, as he’s known, of his duties.
He’s ready for the easy life, soaking up the sun and delivering parcels on a tropical paradise! However, Yoku will quickly discover that an ancient Island deity is trapped in a restless sleep, and a host of colourful, quirky islanders are plagued by quakes and storms brought forth by its nightmares.
It’s all down to Yoku to traverse the island using a unique blend of pinball mechanics and open world exploration, in an amazing quest to help those in need!
Flip and bump our pint-sized protagonist around the stunning hand-painted island on your quest to rebuild the post-office, discover the mystery of the Fruit Altar, and wake an old god from its slumber.
