Playtonic Games is looking to revive the once-popular 3D platformer genre with Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor Yooka-Laylee. The highly-anticipated game is set to launch early next year, and it was recently playable at EGX. Gavin Price, Chris Sutherland, and Steve Mayles also held a panel during the conference, tackling topics like the game's focus on replay value and freedom, the process of developing the characters and their moves, level design and placement of collectibles, and the inclusion of Shovel Knight.

Two days ago we got the exciting news that Shovel Knight will make a guest appearance in Yooka-Laylee, and that's not the only tribute that Shovel Knight received this week. TheDominoKing is a talented YouTuber known for making elaborate and impressive domino creations, including Kanto's starter Pokémon, a Super Mario World tribute, and various characters from the Sonic franchise.

TheDominoKing is back with another impressive video, and this time our favorite Shovel-wielding protagonist is the star. 16,018 dominoes were used to create this tribute, and you can watch them all tumble down by clicking below!

PlayStation Portable, despite never reaching the incredible popularity of Nintendo DS, was a successful device with over 80 million units sold. Unfortunately for Sony, its successor cannot claim the same. Sony has long since stopped revealing official sales numbers for PlayStation Vita (an indication of its underwhelming figures) outside of Japan, but analyst estimates put the handheld's sales numbers at under 15 million.

Jack Tretton, former President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America, recently offered his take on the topic of Vita's poor performance. Speaking candidly with IGN, Tretton expressed his belief that Vita simply launched too late to have a chance at success. Hit the jump for his thoughts.

After the last Nintendo Direct, New Play Control! Pikmin, the re-release of Pikmin that came out for the Wii almost eight years ago, launched on the Wii U eShop in Europe. Nintendo promised that the game would be coming to North America shortly after, but they didn't announce an exact date at the time. Yesterday, the company released a new trailer for the eShop version of New Play Control! Pikmin, which revealed that the game is coming to North America in less than two days, on Thursday, September 29th. The game will only cost $19.99.

Electronic Arts has been working on the latest Star Wars games after the closure of LucasArts. However, 2015's Star Wars Battlefront was met with mixed reception, and many fans just want to play the old Battlefront games. To help tide over fans of the older Battlefront series, the developers who were once working on the cancelled third installment of the franchise have released a healthy amount of alpha footage from the project. Most recently, a new video showing training missions for space and ground combat has been uploaded to FuZah's YouTube channel.

Nintendo planned to launch Paper Mario: Color Splash on October 7th, but when making the game available for pre-loading, Nintendo accidentally released the whole game two weeks early on the eShop.

If you'd like to see more of the game before deciding if you want to buy it, you can check out a huge chunk of the game in the videos found here.
