Developer Playtonic Games has scaled back for its follow-up to its 3D platformer, Yooka-Laylee. The sequel, named Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, opts for a two dimensional perspective, with a top-down hub world. From what we've seen of it so far, it's looking like a smaller but better constructed game. We're definitely eager to try it for ourselves.

Fortunately, there isn't long to wait. Publisher Team 17 has announced Impossible Lair will launch on 8th October 2019, meaning there's just over a month to go. What's more, it's been confirmed that tonics are making a comeback from the first game. Tonics are game-altering collectables that can change things like the visual style or even how the game plays. You can see them in action in the new trailer above. Additionally, pre-ordering the game will earn you four tonics right off the bat.
