The week before this year’s E3 surprised many fans of Playtonic Games’ Yooka-Laylee as the studio revealed that the game will have a succeeding title which will break from the initial game’s 3D perspective with a 2.5D take on the world from the developer. Announcing Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, the team disclosed that the game will be a light sequel, but not a definitive installment for the series.
Last hearing of the game following the announcement, Playtonic shared that the title was close to being finished, however, the studio did not have a slated release date for the game at the time. That is until now as now a release window for October has been teased by the developer on Twitter.

Though the short 43 second-long video only shows a preview for the approaching title, what the most eye grabbing part is the tweet itself that reads “Good things are coming in October…” Insinuating that the game will be releasing later this Fall: the officialy date is expected to be revealed in the weeks leading up to Halloween’s month.
Breaking into a thread, Playtonic also teased that the snippet featured Grant Kirkhope’s work for the game’s soundtrack. The developer shares to be releasing the full track sometime next week. Kirkhope has worked on a bevy on Rare titles regarding their soundtrack prior to key developers leaving to form Playtonic with titles like Banjo Kazooie, GoldenEye 007, and Perfect Dark.
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair will be available this October for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
