Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair Box Art

This game was released on October 08, 2019 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a spin-off platformer from Playtonic Games and Team17 that stars the chameleon Yooka and the bat Laylee. When their arch-nemesis Capital B concocts an evil plan to enslave a kingdom of bees, it is up to the buddy duo to save the day.

Unlike its 3D predecessor Yooka-Laylee, the spin-off is a side-scrolling 2.5D platformer in the style of Donkey Kong Country. It does however have a 3D Overworld that acts as a hub and contains secrets and puzzles.

Tonics that modify the gameplay or the visuals are making a return in Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, and there’s a total of 62 to collect. Four of them are offered as an exclusive pre-order bonus – details after the jump.
