Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair
Playtonic Games have revealed their second game, which is part of the Yooka-Laylee series, but not quite a sequel… Introducing, which is releasing later this year in Europe and North America! It’s a 2D platformer with a 3D overworld, and unlike the first game, it will get a simultaneous release on all platforms. Even better: it’s also getting a not-limited retail release, courtesy of Sold Out!
Here’s the debut trailer and some details:
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a 2D Platforming Adventure Hybrid. Master Yooka and Laylee’s medley of moves and traverse through charming and challenging 2D levels packed to the brim with collectibles, vibrant environments, and a bumbling batch of baddies to battle. Then, pull up your adventuring boots and explore a sprawling 3D overworld that boasts a wealth of puzzles, game-changing secrets, special challenges and a cast of colourful characters to chat to. You’ll meet some familiar faces, and some new ones, as you help Queen Phoebee restore order to the Royal Stingdom.
