Playtonic Games have just made a surprise announcement about their next project! They wanted to take a fresh approach to Yooka-Laylee and added new mechanics and gameplay to this brand new game! If you don’t already know about Yooka-Laylee in general, you can check out our last article about recent updates to the Nintendo Switch and PC versions. Now, we present to you Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, a wacky and adorable adventure and platforming game!
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair isn’t a direct sequel and the developers assure us that they still have plans for the future of the Yooka-Laylee universe. Also, David Wise and Grant Kirkhope, as well as Playtonic’s own in-house composers Dan Murdoch and Matt Griffin have worked together on another amazing soundtrack for this game! Take a look at the reveal trailer and read on to find out more.
There are 2D and 3D elements to Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair – so we hope you’ll find some joy! Also, don’t worry – we have always said we’d love to have another go at 3D platforming, but it wasn’t the right fit for our second project.Playtonic Games
