The preview trailer does show much more platforming than pinball play, but the developers discuss how pinball physics including flippers will be involved in the gameplay.
Team17 and Villa Gorilla have today announced that their pinball platformer, Yoku’s Island Express will be launching on Xbox One on the 29th May.
All about a dung beetle called Yoku, you arrive on Mokumana Island to take over the role of postmaster and deliver parcels on the tropical paradise.
However, an ancient island deity is trapped in a restless sleep – and it’s all down to Yoku to traverse the island using a unique blend of pinball mechanics, platforming and open world exploration.
Flip and bump our pint-sized protagonist around the stunning hand-painted island on your quest to rebuild the post-office and wake an old god from its slumber.
Fun With Bonus is the home of the semi-coherent, misguided ramblings of professional and amateur pinball players.
