I couldn't really say how it will affect the game graphics specifically, but I think it's important to note that we won't get the option to switch to low-poly graphics.
However, I've also been wondering about how we will be able to access this feature, I always thought it might be an unlockable for beating the game that can be turned on and off in the settings menu. Didn't even occur to me that it might be through one of Vendis tonics.

I would love a game like that but allowing the developers the freedom of todays memory so the likes of the likes of music doesn't necessarily need to be squeezed hard or textures to be used as carefully? Does that make sense? Although I don't really mind if it is a sequel to Yooka or not

I think now a lot of people will be expecting the low-poly N64 graphics but I don't think that's what Playtonic ever planned because it would be a lot of work, I think they just planned to play with the colours, ie the shading.
But I could be wrong and they might surprise us with low-poly graphics.
