Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

Publisher Team17 and developer Playtonic Games have announced Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, a 2.5D followup to the original Yooka-Laylee, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam. It will launch both physically and digitally in 2019.

Here is an overview of the game, via Team17:

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.

More information will be announced during E3 2019, which runs from June 11 to 13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
