Guacamelee! 2 the hotly anticipated sequel to the Metroidvanian action-platformer Guacamelee! from Drinkbox Studios will release on PS4 and PC August 21, 2018, for $19.99/€19.99.
Juan Aguacate our hero from the first game steps out of retirement and back into his special luchador mask and tights. Guacamelee 2 introduces new levels, enemies, characters, and gameplay mechanics. The game takes inspiration from traditional Mexican culture and folklore and is set in a unique universe full of challenging adventures and steeped in humor.
Juan must fight his way through the worlds of the living and the dead to stop an evil enemy luchador who rules a parallel timeline. This takes him through a journey of space and time as he sets out to save his family and the entire Mexiverse. Guacamelee! 2 is now available at a twenty percent pre-order discount on PSN for PlayStation Plus members.
Augusto Quijano, Concept Lead at Drinkbox Studios had this to say about Guacamelee! 2; “We asked our inner skeletons what we should do for Gauc 2. We couldn’t decide whether to add better moves, more interesting platforming, timeline travel, chicken powers, or new puns, so we added it all!’
Check out Guacamelee! 2’s Key Features:
Powerful New Moves – New abilities such as Eagle Boost, Rocket Kick, and Pollo Shot add to Juan’s awesome arsenal of moves, for use in both combat and platforming.
Super Chicken! – A unique set of new abilities and moves for Juan’s chicken form. Ridiculous chicken-based platforming, combat, and exploration. More chicken than you’ll be able to handle (probably).
Vibrant, Deadly World – An epic, colorful adventure, inspired by Mexican folklore, that takes players through living and dead worlds and across rifts in space-time! Beautiful environments and 2D animation, more gorgeous than ever thanks to a fancy new rendering engine.
Lots to See – Dense gameplay areas featuring tons of secrets and optional content. Bigger maps, twice as many enemy types as the first game, and a roster of eccentric new bosses.
Brand New Upgrade System – Discover “trainers” from around the world, defeat their challenges and upgrade your movement, combat, traversal, and more.
Caliente Original Soundtrack – Soundtrack featuring new music from Peter Chapman and Rom Di Prisco – composers of the original Guacamelee! OST. Additional new tracks from special guests Mariachi Entertainment System!
