The original Guacamelee! was a delightful surprise, a fresh Metroidvania game wrapped up in some whimsical Luchador imagery that managed to win hearts all over, and be successful across every single platform it was released on- PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and even Wii U. Now, developers Drinkbox Studios are back with a sequel to the original game- this isn’t just an updated re-release, which there were plenty of for the original game. It’s the full blown Guacamelee! 2.
As was announced last year, the game will be launching exclusively on PlayStation 4 and PC (sorry Guacamelee! fans on other platforms). Now we know when- in less than a month, on August 21, you can play Guacamelee! 2.
If you don’t have a PS4 or a PC that can run the game, or if you think this game would be perfect for Switch, or in glorious 4K on Xbox One X, don’t fret- the original Guacamelee! was initially PlayStation exclusive too, and it managed to make its way over to just about everything else. Presumably, that eventually happens with this one as well.
