Lizard and bat superfriends Yooka and Laylee will return for his or her second retro-styled platforming journey on October eighth, builders Playtonic Video games introduced this week. Following the Banjo-Kazooie-inspired 3D platforming of 2017’s Yooka-Laylee, they’re wanting only a smidgen earlier (or maybe adjoining?) with Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair, a side-scrolling “2.5D” platformer with a top-down 3D overlord. Historical past be damned, that is the current and the essential half is: the lizard and bat are nonetheless superfriends. You possibly can see that within the new trailer under.
I like when completely different species are mates.
I’m curious how this one may end up. Expensive Pip’s Yooka-Laylee review expressed frustration with how a lot it caught to the outdated system, what number of irritating concepts it saved in as a result of that’s how issues have been again within the day. She did nonetheless discover it charming, thoughts. And having delivered on their preliminary Kickstarter promise for a Uncommon-style 3D platformer, they’ll now do regardless of the heck they please. Which is likely to be to make an unashamedly 90s platformer, warts and all, or may not. All I can inform is the lizard and bat are mates.
Yooka-Laylee and the Not possible Lair is coming to Steam on October eighth, priced at £25/€30/$30. It’s made by Playtonic Video games and printed by Staff17.
