Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair Could Be Here In October

Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair

The anticipation for Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Liar looks set to bee-come pretty unbearably as developer Playtonic just let slip that we can expect an October release date for their newest title

Ever since Playtonic and publisher Team 17 announced a brand new Yooka-Laylee title was coming, fans have been waiting to find out when they can get reacquainted with this on-screen duo. In a tweet by the ever-awesome Playtonic social media account, the developer hinted strongly that we are likely to see the game hit Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in October.

We always knew that coming soon meant sometime in 2019 for Playtonic but it looks like we now know how much longer we will have to hold on until we can get back into game and take on this new adventure.

Generally accepted as the spiritual successor to the cult classic Banjo-Kazooie, the original Yooka-Laylee was a love letter to classic platforming games, warts and all. The second of these was announced back around June this year and takes players on an adventure to save Queen Phobee’s Royal Beetalion Guard. As both Yooka and Laylee traverse a bright 2.5D set of levels the impossible lair will set them against a range of Capital B’s more dastardly challenges. The gameplay does seem to take clear inspiration fro Donkey Kong Country with contributions from many of the DK dev team. new adventure and includes a number of interesting twists. Featuring altered state levels, a 3D overworld, and a soundtrack that Playtonic has already branded s “something special” Yooka-Laylee is likely to be a game that will thrill fans of the genre as a whole.
