Update (4:15PM, 2nd Sept): The game's eShop page reveals that the release date for Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is October 8th 2019. Best get saving those pennies!

Original story (15th August): Heads up, folks! It looks like we'll finally be able to get our hands on the upcoming Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair in October.

The game has had a rather vague "Q4 2019" release window plonked alongside it for a while now, but a new tweet posted by developer Playtonic Games appears to have narrowed it down nicely. You can check it out for yourself below.

Just a few weeks ago, Playtonic shared a trailer which gave us our first look at the game's transforming levels, effectively doubling the amount of content available to players. Even more recently, we managed to get members of the studio to create some custom Super Mario Maker 2 levels for your enjoyment - you can check those out here.
