For those of you who don’t know, Yoku’s Island Express is a fun spin on classic pinball. Yoku is a dung beetle who happens to be a postmaster on the island of Mokumana. I loved my time with it at E3 2017, and I’m very excited that it will launch soon!
But some of you may be wondering about the gameplay. How close to pinball will it be? Will there be some variations to the classic gameplay? Well, good news! Today, a brand new trailer was released to show off some of Yoku’s abilities!
Some of these abilities include:
- The Noisemaker, a party whistle that acts as Yoku’s postal horn
- The Slug Vacuum, capable of sucking up the pesky slugs that litter the island and utilizing their explosive power to clear stubborn rocks and reveal new routes to explore
- Dive Fish, which will allow Yoku to dive the depths of the island
There will be other abilities to look forward to when the game launches in Q2 of 2018. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
