Pinball Platformer Yoku’s Island Express To Release In 2018

Team17 has announced that it will be publishing Villa Gorilla’s pinball platformer Yoku’s Island Express, with the game expected to release in 2018 for PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Switch. Players take on the role of Yoku the Dung Beetle who has transferred to a tropical island to be its new postmaster, however the island is facing trouble. Instead of delivering letters Yoku needs to rebuild the post office and deal with a god.


Yoku’s Island Express features an open map and it has to be traversed by Yoku while using a pinball. The trailer above shows how some areas have things like flippers to help throw the ball into different areas, and it does look like quite a unique mechanic.
