Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair Release Date and Pre-orders
The Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair release date announcement was accompanied by the news that Tonics are making a return. The 62 Tonics present in the sequel won't just alter gameplay by granting players infinite rolling and super speed or strengthening foes, but will also unlock new environmental and visual effects.
