As we anticipated yesterday, Team 17 has announced the new Playtonic video game (authors of Yooka-Laylee). It is a game set in the same universe, named Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. You can see how it looks in a trailer, which also confirms its launch platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. In the latter, you can play only through Steam.
As you can see the video that accompanies the news, the new Yooka-Laylee sacrifices purely 3D environments in favor of a combination of top-down view for the open world and 2D for the levels. Its managers promise vibrant levels and puzzles to solve while we explore, although at the moment it seems that our protagonists and villains have not suffered too many changes.
The official description of the game reads as follows: ” Prepare for the greatest Capital B challenge to date! Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair comes to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and Steam in 2019 ” Without doubt, we will have to wait a little longer to be able to specify the launch date. Meanwhile, you can read our Yooka-Laylee analysis to see how the first Playtonic Games game went.
