Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is coming to Switch

Yesterday, we reported Playtonic Games would have a new announcement today. Well, we’re finally here and Playtonic has officially announced Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair for Nintendo Switch this morning. Check out the reveal below!

As you can see, this new game is completely different from its predecessor. Instead of the typical 3D collectathon fare, this game seems to focus on 2D sidescrolling levels that are reminiscent of the Donkey Kong Country games.

On top of this, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair features a 3D overworld. This overworld will be filled with numerous puzzles and challenges to overcome.

David Wise and Grant Kirkhope will also be making the soundtrack. Playtonic have further confirmed the game will have a physical and digital release later this year. Playtonic mentioned that this game is not a sequel.

If you want more from Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, Playtonic also teased fans to look forward to the week of E3. If you want to know more, you can check out Playtonic’s FAQ for the game.

I love all kinds of video games. I personally find the most enjoyment in JRPGs, Visual Novels, and pretty much anything Nintendo makes. I'm always open to discovering new types of games, so I'll be happy to check out anything someone suggests.
