After a few days of excitement, the Playtonic developer and publisher Team17 released the trailer for Yooka-Laylee and The Impossible Lair. This time, Yooka-Laylee launches its follow-up in the 2.5D platform instead of the 3D platform.
The first game in the series was a three-dimensional platform filled with emotion. This game gets overwhelming support from the public and has been sold for more than a million copies. Now, developers have become willing to pay to follow the first game. But it is surprising that Playtonic moves away from the 3D platforms and moves the series to the second dimension (.5).
Even then, the levels and graphics look pretty. Yooka-Laylee is clear and eye-catching. However, it will be interesting to know how devs are handled with the switch to 2.5D. However, 3D gaming platforms can be even more childish than their counterparts in the 2.5D class.
Based on the small image we see in the trailer, it seems that the game may act as an improved version of the Donkey Kong Country 3 application. This means you will be moving between 2D levels by exploring a 3D world loaded with puzzles, collectibles and secrets.
Yooka-Laylee and Impossible Lair will be released sometime in 2019 for Nintendo's Switch, PlayStation 4, Steam, and Xbox One.
