The Impossible Date
[Update: Publisher Team17 has confirmed the release date for all platforms with a launch trailer. Impossible Lair will launch for £24.99 / $29.99 / €29.99 with physical editions available on consoles. You can check out the trailer below.]
The last we heard from Playtonic about Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, the game was said to be releasing in October. That could have been a lot of things, but a recent eShop listing narrows it down quite a bit. To the exact day, in fact. According to the Australian Nintendo website, Impossible Lair is locked for an October 8, 2019 date. That’s definitely October, all right.
While that date could just be a place holder, I think it’s pretty likely to be accurate. Digital stores tend to not list false dates and it falls in line with what Impossible Lair’s developer has previously stated. I’d imagine that all versions (PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch) would launch on the same day, so make sure to mark your calendars. This could be the redemption story that Yooka and Laylee deserve.
