We got a bit of a surprise today from Team17 as the company announced a new Yooka-Laylee game for E3 with Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. We don't have a ton of information out about the game yet beyond what was released earlier today. We do know it will be released on all three major consoles and PC sometimes in 2019, along with the brief synopsis below and the trailer. The rest of the info is going to be released during the convention next week, which we thankfully will be checking out. The game appears to serve as a proper sequel to the original developed by Playtonic Games and released in 2017. And it appears they're the primary developer behind this one as well, according to their Twitter. Until we get more info next week, enjoy the trailer for Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair.
