Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is Landing on October 8th

Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair

Get ready for another adventure with everybody’s favourite chameleon-bat duo in Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, coming to PC and consoles on October 8th.

Preorders are now open for the sequel to Playtonic Games’ 2017 retro platformer Yooka-Laylee, and it looks like game modifying ‘Tonics’ are returning in a big way.

More than 60 tonics can be collected in Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, each changing up the visual style, the gameplay or the environments. For example, some tonics might grant you infinite rolling, or harder enemies – while some will give Yooka an enlarged head or turn every level into a disco party!


The team behind Yooka-Laylee was comprised of ex-employees of Rare who worked on games such as Banjo-Kazooie, and was designed as a spiritual successor to those retro platformers. Fans who feel nostalgia for that era of gaming will be happy to hear of the new sequel.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on October 8th – and can be preordered now to get a bonus ‘Trowzer’s Top Tonic Pack’, containing four exclusive cosmetic tonics. You can find more details on the Team17 website, and check out the new release date trailer below.
