Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair Announced

In the build-up to E3, Playtonic Games teased a new game announcement set for today. In that revealed, we learned about Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, a 2D platformer out later this year.

Instead of a 3D platformer, the sequel to Yooka-Laylee uses inspiration from Donkey Kong Country, the new side-scrolling mechanics are certainly exciting and harken back to days spent discovering all the secrets hidden within a level.

The official description:

In this new platforming adventure hybrid, Yooka and Laylee must combine their abilities to take on a series of challenging and vibrant 2.5D levels and explore and solve puzzles in a beautiful 3D overworld. It’s on them to rescue Queen Phoebee’s Royal Beettalion Guard from each level, as they size up Capital B’s most dastardly challenge yet — the Impossible Lair.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
