Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

Publisher Team17 and developer Playtonic Games have released a new trailer for Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair dubbed “Alternate Level States.”

Here is a brief overview of the game, via Team17:

In Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, players must rescue members of Queen Phoebee’s Royal Beettalion from Capital B in a quest to take on his most dastardly challenge yet—the Impossible Lair. Players will explore a charming 3D overworld to uncover 20 different 2.5D levels, each with a member of the Royal Beettalion to rescue.

However, there’s more! As the colourful duo traverse through the overworld, Yooka and Laylee will discover new secrets and puzzles which can dynamically transform each level, increasing the total number of levels to 40! Spark some change by hooking up electricity, flood chapters with running water or literally flip them upside down for radically altered challenges.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in Q4 2019.
