Guacamelee! was a wonderfully pleasant surprise when it first launched five years ago, and has become something of a cult hit in the metroidvania genre. We already knew a sequel was on the way, but it came with an extremely vague "coming soon-ish" time frame. However, Drinkbox Studios has now announced a release date, and it really is coming soon-ish -- Guacamelee! 2 launches 21st August 2018 worldwide.
The above trailer is brief, but it features some new footage, and the game looks like it has all the tricky platforming, satisfying combat, and fascination with chickens that we know and love. The PlayStation Blog has some more details, including the increased emphasis on Juan's chicken form, new combat tutor characters, and an even bigger game world than before. It sounds great, and we're very much looking forward to playing it for ourselves.
Will you be getting reacquainted with Juan next month? Don a luchador mask in the comments below.
Great game, look forward to this!
Yes ! The first one is still a must-buy, can't wait for this one !
Minor update: the release date is 21st August for North America and Europe.
Is this exclusive?
I'll be there day one since I like the first game
Excellent news. Loved the first game.
@waluigifan1 Doubtful. Timed at most. But it'll spend more time in exclusivity than anything Xbox (Never exclusive due to PC) and Switch (Current record I think is 1 week!).
Yes! Loved and platinumed the first on vita. Couldnt quite get into the ps4 version in the same way, but i am sure i will love this.
This is awesome news I can’t wait to play this day one. The first one is one of the finest examples of the metroidvania genre and I expect no less from its sequel
Love the art style and the gameplay looks fun definitely looking forward to this
This, Overcooked 2 and Shenmue for August.
The first is a really good game and I hope I can finish it as it is proving a significant challenge to me.
