Drinkbox Studios, are excited to finally announce the launch date for its Mexican wrestling-inspired, downloadable adventure game Guacamelee! The game will be released on 10th April on PS3 and PSVita in the EU and will support Cross-Buy. This means you buy the game once and get both the PS3 and PS Vita versions! Double the fun! Double the excitement!
Guacamelee! is a Metroid-vania style action platformer set in a magical Mexican-inspired world. The game draws inspiration for its unique story and characters from traditional Mexican culture and folklore. Guacamelee! builds upon the classic open-world Metroid-vania style of games by adding a strong melee combat component, a new dimension-switching mechanic, and co-operative same-screen multiplayer for the entire story. Many of the player’s moves are needed for both combat and platforming, blurring the boundaries between the two styles of gameplay.
