YookaLayleeAndTheImpossibleLair KeyArt

Team17 and Playtonic Games have today announced a sequel to the popular 3D platformer Yooka-Laylee – and it's coming this year.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair follows on from the events of the first game, but it's not a 3D platformer this time around; instead, it mixes 2.5D levels with a Zelda-like overworld.

In the latter, you'll solve puzzles and converse with NPCs as you try to thwart the plans of the dastardly Capital B and liberate Queen Phoebee’s Royal Beettalion Guard. Doing so will improve their chances of conquering Capital B's latest challenge: the titular "Impossible Lair".

As well as coming to the Nintendo Switch, Impossible Lair will also launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. More information is expected on the game during E3 week, but we do know that publisher Sold Out will be creating a physical version of the game:
