New characters arrive on Yoku’s Island Express

Team 17 and independent developer Vila Gorilla have unveiled a brand new trailer for their upcoming endeavor, Yoku’s Island Express, but don’t let the name fool you. This is no train simulator.

Due out later this year on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC, this pinball platformer follows Yoku, the titular character, who happens to be a sprite little dung beetle. The new peek into Yoku’s adventure shows off more of these unique mechanics, after the recent abilities trailer, and shows Yoku bounding across a lush jungle. It also introduces some brand new characters.

As players explore the land of Mokmana, they will meet a whole host of cute inhabitants. Fosfur, who devours tasty mushrooms; Ohm, Tilo, and Jama, the mountaineers; the Skull Gang, and more colorful creations populate the game. If you are looking for a platformer that is just a little bit different, meet the rest of the cast ion the trailer, above.
