Yooka-Laylee released in 2017 and represented a new 3D platformer from a team made up of ex-Rare talent that was in many ways a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie starring a new duo of brightly coloured talking-in-gibberish animals. In our review we commended its ambition but felt that overall it fell a little short of reaching those Nintendo 64 heights. Today comes word of a sequel of sorts, with a switch to 2.5D side-scrolling platform action.
That will also feature a top-down over-world that you can explore in 3D ala classic Super Mario Bros. Check it out.
In this new platforming adventure hybrid, Yooka and Laylee must combine their abilities to take on a series of challenging and vibrant 2.5D levels and explore and solve puzzles in a beautiful 3D overworld. It’s on them to rescue Queen Phoebee’s Royal Beettalion Guard from each level, as they size up Capital B’s most dastardly challenge yet – the Impossible Lair.
More info will come at E3 but so far the vibrant visuals seen in the original return here. Plus, the platforming looks great too. Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair comes from the same developer and publisher duo behind the original, Playtonic and Team17, and will be heading to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2019.
