Drinkbox Studios' extremely silly, very entertaining Mexican-themed co-op-multiplayer Metroidvania Guacamelee! is getting a sequel.
Guacamelee! 2 expands upon the original game by introducing new levels, enemies, bosses, gameplay mechanics and more for "the ultimate luchador experience". It also supports co-op for up to four.
It picks up seven years after the original story, with Juan Aguacate living a happy life with his family until his friend and trainer Uay Chivo discovers a new evil menace that threatens to destroy not only Mexico, but time and space itself.
Guacamelee! 2 will include a bevy of new features, including:
◆ Eagle Boost – A hooking mechanic that allows Juan to attach and fly through “boost points” in the environment
◆ Super Chicken! – A unique set of abilities for the chicken form, giving the player more varied and interesting chicken gameplay
◆ New Environmental Mechanics – Throughout the course of the game players will encounter many new mechanics to complement both platforming and combat
◆ Visual Enhancements – A redesigned lighting system to take more advantage of the power of the PS4.
It will support 4K and HDR on PS4 Pro.
"We’re also excited to have much more emphasis on the chicken form in this game,” said Drinkbox Studios co-founder Graham Smith.
"Everyone on the team really wanted the sequel to have more FOWL PLAY. Hahaha, do you get it? It’s funny because it sounds the same as ‘foul play’. I’m not sure you get it."
Guacamelee! 2 was announced for PlayStation 4 at the Sony press conference at Paris Games Week, but chances are it is also coming to PC at the very least.
