Drinkbox Studios has announced that their vibrant and colorful Metroidvania-inspired platformer, Guacamelee 2, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on Dec 10 and then sometime in Jan 2019 for the Xbox One.
Right now, you can go ahead and pre-order the game on the Nintendo Switch eShop to receive a 10% discount. Also, if you already own Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition, you’ll receive an additional 20% off, marking the initial price down quite a notch.
There are also two downloadable content packs coming to Guacamelee 2, one titled “Tree Enimigos,” and the other dubbed as “Proving Grounds.” The first add-on pack is actually available now for the PS4 and PC and costs $2.99. The pack allows you to play as three new boss characters: El Muñeco, Uay Pek, and Jaguar Javier.
Proving Grounds will launch in December for the price of $3.99 and features multiple new challenges and several unlockable characters.
These two packs will be available for the Switch and Xbox One versions once the game launches of course.
Guacamelee 2 is now out for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can watch the announcement trailer down below:
We recently reviewed Guacamelee 2 for the PS4 and thoroughly enjoyed the 2D platformer, giving the game a rating of 4/5. Just like its predecessor, Guacamelee 2 excels in its deep and engaging combat as well as its unique platforming segments. The game was just a bit too similar to the first one, but hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it…am I right?
