Playtonic Studios have revealed the latest character for Yooka-Laylee, their upcoming throwback 3D platforming game.
Featured above, the new character is hilariously named Kartos, the “God of Ore.” Yep, he’s clearly taking jabs at the infamously angsty Kratos (God of War), however there couldn’t be more differences between the two characters.
Kartos is a friendly character that is described, much like the other characters, as “old fashioned” and “old-school.” Playtonic’s Kev Bayliss talked up his creation in Kartos:
“He actually looks like a bad DIY project by myself, and I’m sure I’ve seen some of his body parts lying around in my shed at home.”
Kartos will provide a service for protagonist Yooka at various moments through the game. Finally, it’s worth mentioning a new track was revealed for Kartos (which plays during the Kartos Challenge).
Yooka-Laylee is going to launch across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PC, Mac, and Linux in October this year.
