Metroidmeet Mexican culture. Mexican culture, Metroid.
Take Super Metroid, mix it with some arcade multiplayer, and lather it in guacamole and what do you get? A delicious new sidescroller for PS3 and Vita, that’s what. And one with an ingenious title to boot. Guacamelee! is, in the words of Graham Smith, COO of DrinkBox Studios, a “Mexican-themed co-op-multiplayer dimension-swapping Metroid-vania beat-em-up platformer”. It’s got my vote from that description alone, but if you need more convincing, how about the fact that you’ll be saving El Presidente’s daughter? Or I suppose you could check out the trailer below.
No word on a release date yet, but DrinkBox will be showing off Guacamelee! at E3 next week, so stay tuned for more details.
