Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair release date revealed
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair launches October 8th, Team17 has announced.
Team17 also revealed that Yooka-Laylee’s game-changing Tonics will be returning. Players will be able to collect more than 60 Tonics that will change the game in a number of ways, such as infinite rolling, harder enemies, and new visual effects.
Players who preorder the game will receive the Trowser’s Top Tonic Pack, which includes the following exclusive cosmetic Tonics:
- Large Head tonic: This tonic gives Laylee a comically oversized head
- Glow Worm tonic: Yooka and Laylee glow like… well, glow worms
- D.I.S.C.O. tonic: Turn every level into a platforming party of Playtonic proportions
- Yooka 64: A blast from the past Tonic for fans of all things retro
“We’re excited to announce we are just a few weeks away from sending Yooka and Laylee off onto their next adventure against Capital B,” Gavin Price, managing director and creative lead at Playtonic Games, said. “Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair takes the 2D platforming genre, mixes it up with a 3D world to explore and injects it with the unique humour that Playtonic is known for. Bringing Tonics back in all-new flavors (they’re now combinable!) will give the community millions of ways to play the game and we can’t wait to see the results online!”
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
