Playtonic and Team17 released Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair on various platforms this week, including Switch. As is tradition at this point, Digital Foundry examined the game to see how it holds up from a technical perspective.

When playing docked, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair maintains a resolution of 1360×765. Portable mode reduces the image to 960×540. Fortunately, the platformer almost always run at 60 frames per second on Switch.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, Playtonic’s second game and a new 2D platformer for Switch, is out today. We’ve included a new launch trailer below.

Yooka-Laylee will be adding a new model for its 64-bit Tonic, developer Playtonic has announced. A specific release date hasn’t been announced.

Players can already access the 64-bit Tonic, which gives Yooka-Laylee a retro-esque look. However, the in-game model didn’t really match the feel of that style. With this new model – pictured above – Playtonic is delivering on fan requests to have Yooka and Laylee seem as though they were right out of the N64 era.
