Yooka-Laylee Returns in New 2D Platformer the Impossible Lair Later This Year

By Brandon Fusco, 3 months ago
Yooka and Laylee will be springing into a new 2D adventure in Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair thanks to the continuing partnership between PlayTonic Games and publisher Team17.

In this follow-up, Yooka and Laylee will have to team up to save Queen Phoebee’s Royal Beettalion Guard by combining their unique moves. Taking a page from more modern platforming games, The Impossible Lair will feature tense side-scrolling platforming stages and a 3D isometric overworld that connects them all together.


PlayTonic has promised "more information will follow during E3 week" and that the game will be coming "probably sooner than you’d expect!" Per the developers, "You better bee ready for Capital B's most dastardly challenge yet!" when Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair comes to Xbox One both physically and digitally later in 2019.

Be sure to keep an eye on our E3 2019 Hub for all the latest, including any potential release dates.
