Meet your neighbours in Yoku's Island Express in this new trailer
A bug's life
We got another glimpse at the upcoming Yoku’s Island Express, a sweet little pinball platformer in which you play as a postman dung beetle.
In Yoku’s Island Express, you’ll sling yourself through a diverse array of platforming challenges that cleverly employ pinball mechanics as you embark on a quest to save Mokumana Island’s guardian deity who’s been trapped in unending nightmares. The game is awash in tropical hues, and the world design and characters are positively charming.
The game’s new trailer showcases some of the many side quests you’ll embark in on your adventures. As it turns out, the villagers on the island are pretty demanding. They’ll task you with all number of odd jobs, from growing mushroom hats to collecting “Chunks”, which I’m pretty sure is just a more polite word for dung. Those beetles are crazy about the stuff. Yoku’s Island Express is expected to arrive sometime later this year on Nintendo Switch.
