3D platformer tribute Yooka-Laylee is getting a shock sequel that turns the franchise right into a extra conventional 2D (or 2.5D platformer).- Advertisement -
Titled Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, this upcoming sequel will reportedly mix parts of 3D exploration with 2D platforming. It’s not totally clear how the 3D parts work presently, although, as the one reference to them within the trailer point out a 3D overworld to discover. Based on the little footage that we see within the trailer, it looks like the game would possibly operate as an enhanced model of Donkey Kong Country 3. That is to say that you’re going to navigate between 2D ranges by exploring a 3D overworld loaded with puzzles, collectibles, and secrets and techniques.
For essentially the most half, although, it does seem to be developer Playtonic is leaning on the 2D platforming parts. So far as that goes, these ranges appear to resemble the complicated (and exquisite) ones we have seen in video games like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It stays to be seen whether or not or not this game can be fairly as punishingly troublesome as that title, although.
Despite the adjustments, there are features of Impossible Lair that confirm its sequel standing. Not solely does the game proceed the story of the primary by asking gamers to assist Queen Phoebee deliver peace to the Royal Stingdom, however we see appearances from some of the unique game’s characters. Besides, it is fairly apparent the unique game’s sense of…humor goes to make a comeback.
We reviewed the unique Yooka-Laylee and located it to be a loving tribute to the 3D platformer style popularized by Rare and Nintendo. Unfortunately, that is not essentially factor. The game additionally featured many of the issues featured in these traditional titles, together with the overreliance on the quantity of collectibles that we noticed within the daunting Donkey Kong 64. Thankfully, the 2D style tends to be extra traditionally rock strong and makes Impossible Lair a barely extra interesting prospect than the primary game.
