Yooka-Laylee's upcoming Nintendo 64 demaster has been given the trailer treatment courtesy of developer Playtonic Games, and it's looking pretty much as you would expect.

The 64-bit Tonic downgrade been in the pipeline for some time now, back when Yooka-Laylee first rocked up on Kickstarter. It does pretty much what it says on the tin: The game has been totally reimagined as something that's just come out of the mid-90s, from blocky character models to a capped frame rate.

It's just like playing Banjo-Kazooie again, which is fitting as Yooka-Laylee was made by former Rare developers. 

There's no release date in sight, but Playtonic says it's 'coming soon' as a free update. Check out the video below.
