You wouldn’t expect an indie platformer like Guacamelee, recently released for the PlayStation Vita and PS3, from a developer like DrinkBox Studios, to have as many Nintendo references as it does. But not just Nintendo – the game actually pays homage to several classic franchises like Grim Fandango, Metroid, Castlevania and much more.

A lot of the references and shout-outs can be seen in hieroglyphics and statues littered throughout the game. You’ll find Simon Belmont whipping a skeleton, the aliens from Space Invaders, Super Meat Boy challenging N+, a brick pattern of Mega Man, “Los Super Hermanos” (we’ll let you guess what that translates to), Viva Pinata, El Linko and much much more.

One thing is for sure – DrinkBox really appreciates all the classics, platforming and otherwise, that came before it.
