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.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
