Drinkbox Studios announced that they’re working on Guacamelee 2. It’s an action-platformer like the first game, and will feature four-player cooperative play. It’s set to release “soon-ish.”
Check out the debut Guacamelee 2 trailer below:
For more on the original game, check out Paulmichael Contreras’ Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition review. Here’s a snippet of what he had to say:
The PlayStation 4 has absolutely no problems running GSTCE. The game is buttery-smooth. Load times are practically non-existent, lasting no longer than 2 seconds between levels. No matter how many enemies the game throws at you at once (and it can be plenty!), the frame rate remains consistent throughout. Co-op is still supported on the same screen, which can make for some fun couch gameplay. The trackpad button is used to bring up the map, and the controller’s LED lights up in multiple colors when you receive a new power or earn new life or energy, which is a cool touch that is especially noticeable when playing in a darkened gaming space.
Ultimately, Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition is just like the original, with a couple of added tweaks — this is a good thing! If you’ve purchased the original, it can be a hard decision to purchase this. If you are a big fan of the series and cannot wait to pummel enemies in Intenso mode, then by all means pick this up. If you never played the original and enjoy Castlevania-like beat-em-ups, then definitely pick this up. If you love lucha libre lore, then of course pick this up. Finally, if you are a fan of funny games, then don’t hesitate to pick this game up and play!
Guacamelee 2 is coming “soon-ish” to PlayStation 4.
