Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair gets October release date

Team 17 has announced that Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair will be released on October 8.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a follow-up to the 2.5D platformer Yooka-Laylee, which was released back in 2017. According to the developers:

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair sees the duo unite in order to rescue members of Queen Phoebee’s Royal Beettalion Guard from the dastardly Capital B, in a quest to ultimately take on his most nefarious challenge yet: The Impossible Lair.  

Game-modifying potions known as tonics, which were first encountered in the original Yooka-Laylee, are making a return. Team 17 says that more than 60 tonics can be collected in the sequel, giving players the ability to mix up the game in different ways.

“Tonics not only affect gameplay – including infinite rolling, harder enemies, and super speed – but also unlock new environmental and visual effects,” Team 17 says.

The developers also released a new trailer showing off the game’s tonics, which you can watch below:

Physical copies of Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair are available for pre-order now on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It is also coming to PC as a digital-only release. The game will retail for $29.99.
