Guacamelee 2 Announced For PS4 With First Gameplay Trailer

Guacamelee 2 kicked off Sony's Paris Games Week pre-show.

14 Comments

A sequel to acclaimed Metroidvania-style platformer Guacamelee is officially on the way. Guacamelee 2 was the first game revealed as part of Sony's pre-show before its Paris Games Week showcase today, and it's on the way to PS4.

DrinkBox Studios is again developing the game, which strongly resembles its predecessor, both in terms of its colorful visual style (with 4K and HDR support on PS4 Pro) and its gameplay. We got to see one new ability players will obtain called Chicken Shot, which allows you to transform into a chicken and then dash in seemingly any direction. This was shown to be useful for navigating the world and in combat. There's also four-player local co-op support. You can check all of this out in the debut trailer above.

"Guacamelee 2 picks up seven years after the original story," the official description reads. "Juan Aguacate is living a happy life with his family, when his friend and trainer Uay Chivo discovers a new evil menace that threatens to destroy not only Mexico, but time and space itself."

As this was announced at a Sony event, we only know that it's coming to PS4. The first game came to numerous platforms, so it's possible we'll end up seeing this on PC, Xbox One, or Switch. Notably, however, there was no mention of a Vita version. It's coming to PS4 "soon-ish," though it won't arrive until sometime in 2018.

There was a lot more revealed during Sony's Paris Games Week showcase. That included a new Last of Us 2 trailer and a God of War trailer, as well as the announcement of Spelunky 2.

I liked the first game but I thought it was short. It's a weird thing to say given how much I spent on it but if it's considered to be a Metroidvania kind of game then it was weird for it to end so quickly. I have 4 hours clocked in on it on Steam.

Loved the first game but I in no way need a sequel to it. They did a fantastic job with the Metroidvania style game, I just wish this was an all new IP with the same style.

If you never played the first one and you like Metroid, just do it. It's on like every platform, and it's a stellar Metroid game.

It will forever remain a mystery to me why anybody liked the first game. Such a cheaply made game.

@Ripper_TV: I dunno, my enjoyment of a game is not predicated on how much money a developer/publisher spent making it. It has nothing to do with me... I just want to play a fun video game and Guacamelee was fun.

@Ripper_TV: Here's a simple decision block:

1. Do you like Metroid games?

1a. If yes, buy this game.

1b. If not, don't buy this game.

If you didn't play the first, you should. Easily one of my favorite games of the last few years.
