Kartos, the God of Ore is Yooka-Laylee’s Newest Character

yooka-laylee 02-15-16-1

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.

    Well I suppose he can go to the underworld and back casually like Kratos.

    THE MINORS HAVE FORSAKEN HIM.

    He wasn’t the same ever since that fraudulent sex offender case. Now Kartos has to barely scrape by selling goods and services by foot across the lands.

    I saw this on the yooka laylee twitter, and I didn’t get the reference until reading this.

    I like it.

    I gotta say, this is pretty clever. As for his personality, I was kinda hoping he’d act like a thickheaded moron all the time haha.
