The game is not a direct sequel, but a standalone story based in Yooka-Laylee’s colourful universe. And where the original game drew inspiration from such Nintendo 64-era 3D platformers as Donkey Kong 64 and Banjo-KazooieThe Impossible Lair will lose a dimension in what looks to be a gorgeous 2D sidescroller.
