Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair coming on October 8
The 2D platformer will also be getting 60 Tonics as well, changing how the game plays and looks.
Playtonic Games and Team17 have revealed that Yooka-Laykee and the Impossible Lair is now available to pre-order, and that's because the release date has just been announced, meaning we can expect the latest adventure with Yooka and Laylee on October 8 for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
The announcement also confirms the return of the game-modifying Tonics, with 60 available to collect, providing effects like new environments, visual changes, super speed, and infinite rolling, just to name a few. Pre-orders include the exclusive Trowzer's Top Tonic pack too, including the following:
Largee Head tonic: This tonic gives Laylee a comically oversized head
Glow Worm tonic: Yooka and Laylee glow like... well, glow worms
D.I.S.C.O. tonic: Turn every level into a platforming party of Playtonic proportions
Yooka 64: A blast from the past Tonic for fans of all things retro
"We're excited to announce we are just a few weeks away from sending Yooka and Laylee off onto their next adventure against Capital B," said Gavin Price, Managing Director & Creative Lead at Playtonic Games. "Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair takes the 2D platforming genre, mixes it up with a 3D world to explore and injects it with the unique humour that Playtonic is known for. Bringing Tonics back in all new flavours (they're now combinable!) will give the community millions of ways to play the game and we can't wait to see the results online!"
Physical editions are available on PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, and the game is also available digitally on all three and PC for £24.99 ($29.99 USD, €29.99).
