Part pinball game, part open-world adventure, Yoku’s Island Express is delightfully easy to wrap your head around. It’s an open-world platformer that substitutes running and jumping for using pinball flippers to thwack your character about the world.

Team 17 is handling publishing duties for this one, with Villa Gorilla taking the reins on development. Yoku’s Island Express is due to launch in Q2 2018 but in the meantime, we’ve got a brand spanking new side quests trailer. Each and every inhabitant of Mokumana Island will have a side quest that can be completed for bonus rewards: “Meet Fosfor who craves tasty Cove Mushrooms; Ohm, Tilo and Jamja the mountaineers clambering the Mt. Peak trail; Spina, Juice Master Jeepers and the rest of the Skull Gang and many, many more wonderful characters.”

While Yoku’s Island Express looks very simple, here’s a great deal of charm and a potentially great game lurking underneath its bubbly exterior.

Yoku’s Island Express is out in Q2 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
