A few days ago, Playtonic Games revealed its new title to the world. The 2.5D game is called Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair and is a follow-up to the original 2017 3D platformer. Is it a direct sequel, though? Apparently not.

An FAQ on Playtonic's official website says the game "isn't a direct sequel" to the first outing available on Nintendo Switch and multiple other platforms. The UK-based developer working under the publisher Team17 simply wanted to create a "fresh" experience.

We’ve got lots planned for the future of the Yooka-Laylee universe, but we want to approach each with a fresh take, as each game is an opportunity for us to add new mechanics and gameplay that isn’t necessarily limited to what’s happened before.

If you're wondering when we'll find out more about this new outing starring Yooka-Laylee, you can expect to hear more about it at E3 2019. Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair will be simultaneously released across all platforms "sooner than you'd expect" and will also receive a physical release on the Nintendo Switch.

Are you looking forward to finding out about Yooka-Laylee's new adventure? Did you play through the first game? Tell us down in the comments.
