Drinkbox Studios has finally announced when Guacamelee! 2 will enter the ring.
On Tuesday, August 21st, PlayStation 4 and PC players will be able to jump into the platformer filled with luchadors, chickens, and Mexican folklore. As for pricing, the title will be $19.99 on both platforms. Plus, according to a recent PlayStation Blog post, PlayStation Plus members that preorder through the PlayStation Store will get an additional 20 percent off.
A new trailer was also released to show off the vibrant worlds of the living and the dead that the series’ returning hero, Juan Aguacate, will navigate. To get a reminder of Gaucamelee! 2‘s high-speed platforming, check out the fresh footage below.
As we previously covered in our hands-on time with the upcoming sequel, a few of the best features from the first game have been amped up. First up, Juan and the other luchadors will have the returning ability to transform into chickens, but this time they’ll have new skills at their disposal, such as the Pollo Shot, Pollo Glide, and Pollo Slide. There will be more abilities and powerful upgrades to earn through new trainer challenges. Also, it will feature four-player local co-op, which players can drop-in and drop-out of at any time.
Drinkbox Studios hasn’t confirmed if Guacamelee! 2 will be heading to more platforms, but it’s likely to if the sequel ends up being as popular as the original. The first game initially launched for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita but was later released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Wii U through a definitive physical edition.
Guacamelee! 2 will launch for PlayStation 4 and PC on August 21st.
