Yooka-Laylee - Kartos Challenge theme, character revealed

Lovely, isn’t it? Very cheerful. This particular piece is designed to accompany a section of the game starring our latest character reveal, Kartos. During their adventure, Yooka and Laylee will have many encounters with this humble minecart, and together they’ll hit the tracks in search of paper-shaped golden nuggets.

Father of Kartos, Mr Kev Bayliss explains: “In true Playtonic fashion, we wanted to make this character as fun as possible. He’s old school, so we wanted him to look old fashioned, rather than modern. 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!

“Yooka will be taking advantage of Kartos and his services, as he is for ‘hire’ at various stages in the game. And why not? After all, his slogan is ‘Mein Kart ist Ihre Kart’ after all!”

Thanks to Diego for the heads up!

Kartos? Is he a Dog of Raw?

The character is neat, but dat music... David Wise is so amazing. Smile

Great tunes! At around the 1:30 min mark is really good.

pretty awesome, really awesome

The music is stupendous. I need this game NOW.

I love how he's like a mixed tribute of DK Country and Banjo. He's got the tradition of being an inanimate object turned into a character like from Banjo-Kazooie, and he's a minecart, like from Donkey Kong Country. Part of his face reminds me of Dr Eggman, mainly the moustache, nose, and head lights looking like goggles.

I like how his named is possibly a spoof of Kratos from God Of War.
