'Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair' (ALL) Demo Available On Switch, PS4 and PC

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a platform adventure where the colorful buddy duo must tackle a series of stunning, 2.5D levels and explore a puzzling 3D Overworld rich with secrets and surprises.

The return of ‘Tonics’, game-modifying potions first encountered in the original Yooka-Laylee, has also been confirmed. More than 60 Tonics can be collected, giving players the ability to mix up the game in brand-new ways. In Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, Tonics not only affect gameplay – including infinite rolling, harder enemies, and super speed – but also unlock new environmental and visual effects! 

A range of exciting 2.5D levels sit within an expansive 3D Overworld, as Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair sees the duo unite in order to rescue members of Queen Phoebee’s Royal Beettalion Guard from the dastardly Capital B, in a quest to ultimately take on his most nefarious challenge yet: The Impossible Lair.  

The free demo, available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, and Steam, gives a taster of tonics, trials, and tantalising obstacles to traverse, including a chance to complete the lair itself, the first five levels of the game, and a Pageie Challenge, as Yooka and Laylee once again face off against antagonist Capital B!

The demo has no time limit, meaning there’s no pesky interruption to the fun. Should players then decide to purchase the full game and continue their adventure, the save from the demo will carry over, meaning no progress is lost. 

Pre-orders for the game can be made from today, providing players access to the exclusive ‘Trowzer’s Top Tonic Pack’, a collection of four exclusive cosmetic Tonics perfect for players eager to start their adventure through the Royal Stingdom: 

  • Largee Head tonic: This tonic gives Laylee a comically oversized head 
  • Glow Worm tonic: Yooka and Laylee glow like… well, glow worms 
  • D.I.S.C.O. tonic: Turn every level into a platforming party of Playtonic proportions 
  • Yooka 64: A blast from the past Tonic for fans of all things retro 

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is available digitally on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC for £24.99 / $29.99 / €29.99. Physical editions are available on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch at selected retailers globally.
