Yoku’s Island Express Lands On Nintendo Switch On May 29, 2018

Team17 and developer Villa Gorilla today announced that their pinpall platform adventure Yoku’s Island Express will launch on Nintendo Switch on May 29, 2018 for $19.99 / €19.99 / £15.99.

Yoku the dung beetle has arrived on Mokumana Island to take over the role of postmaster and he’s ready for the easy life, soaking up the sun and delivering parcels on a tropical paradise.

However, an ancient island deity is trapped in a restless sleep – and it’s all down to Yoku to traverse the island using a unique blend of pinball mechanics, platforming and open world exploration, in an amazing adventure 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 and wake an old god from its slumber.

To celebrate the game’s impending launch, developer Villa Gorilla and Team17 have released a new developer diary which explores the creation and the unique mechanics of Yoku’s Island Express.
