Team17 and Playtonic Games have released a new software update for Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair that now sees the 2.5D platformer on version 1.0.4.
This free content update has introduced an 8-bit soundtrack, and has made the Impossible Lair not so impossible, add a checkpoint in each section to help those that are struggling to clear it.
Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair is now available at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair Update Version 1.0.4 Patch Notes
The Impossible Lair
No ‘Bee Shield’, no checkpoints. The “Golden Try” tonic can now be earned through this version of the Lair, without the need to restart the save.
The Not So Impossible Lair
Each section of the Lair now ends with a checkpoint. Checkpoints save your best “bee shield” score. You can select which checkpoint you start from, and your highest bee shield score will always be saved. E.g., you previously cleared a section with 10 bees remaining. You select the checkpoint and clear it with 12 bees remaining. Your bee progress stays saved, so you have more bees for later sections.
Players can now choose to hear the 2D level music in 8-bit chiptune, thanks to the work of Tatertottunes. This option can be found in the menu.
