If you backed the game during the Kickstarter campaign and chose the Switch version (after the Wii U version was canceled) then you should have your code by the time the game launches.
The Switch version of the game is said to have a more consistent frame rate than previous versions and boasts an achievement system plus all of the features from the last major update on other platforms. Yooka-Laylee runs in 600p while the Switch is in handheld mode and 900p when the system is docked.
