Release Date Announced for Guacamelee! 2 on Xbox One

DrinkBox Studios have announced when XBox One gamers will get to enjoy the latest in Juan Aguacate’s adventures. Guacamelee! 2 will release on Xbox and Windows 10 on January 18th, and is currently enjoying a 20% pre-order discount.

Brawling has never been more beautiful! The long-awaited sequel to the smash hit action-platformer is here: Guacamelee! 2 brings luchador Juan Aguacate out of retirement for a stunning new Metroidvania-style adventure, where he must face his greatest challenge yet - one that threatens to tear apart the very fabric of the Mexiverse! Explore a huge, hand-crafted world inspired by Mexican culture and folklore, filled with sassy new villains and weirdos (and a few old friends!). Learn a deep repertoire of bone-crunching wrestling moves to fend off the skeletal hordes and overcome skillful platforming challenges... and who said anything about a Chicken Illuminati? Certainly not us!

Guacamelee! 2 Coming To Xbox One

DrinkBox Studios is still busy with Guacamelee! 2. Announcing some DLC yesterday, and with the Switch port on the way, they announced today that Guacamelee! 2 is coming to Xbox One in January.

If you’ve played Guacamelee! 2 and wondering what we though, you can check out our spoilercast here!

DrinkBox Studios Announces Guacamelee! 2 DLC

Guacamelee! 2 launched on PlayStation 4, and PC last August and now we got some DLC in store. Starting tomorrow you’ll be able to play as three of the games bosses El Muñeco, Uay Pek, or Jaguar Javier.

December 7th will be a bit more beefy with new challenge levels:

“This new DLC pack ($3.99) introduces a new challenge level, The Proving Grounds – a floating temple and home to the god Tiempochtli, where luchadores have gone since the beginning of time to sharpen their skills. Your five lucha trainers team up to guide you through a series of challenges, and each trainer is ready to award you with a character skin that lets you play the game as that trainer. Like the Enemigos, their costumes have unique gameplay attributes suited to the trainer’s specialty. Flame Face does higher and higher damage the greater your combo grows; Uay Coco’s magic lets him execute many special moves, but his body is extra-vulnerable to damage (and he makes for a pretty adorable ‘chicken’).”

Guacamelee! 2 will be hitting Switch next month as well, and if you’re curious what we thought of Guacamelee! 2 make sure to check out our spoilercast.

Spoilercast - Guacamelee! 2

Spoilercast! We got a new show for CanadianGameDevs.com where we'll play a game and just discuss it on end. It'll be sort of a review/spoilercast type of show.

First up is Guacamelee! 2 from DrinkBox Studios. This sequel to the 2013 indie hit dropped on PS4 and Steam last week so Bret, and I were joined by developer from the first game turned fan Jason Canam to discuss everything we liked (a lot of things) and disliked (not that many things) about DrinkBox's new game.

Remember to subscribe to the podcast on iTunesGoogle Play, or SoundCloud. And Patron's at the $4+ level got this episode 2+ days early.

On August 21st, gamers can download the metroidvania sequel on PlayStation 4 (which you can pre-order here and save 20%), and Steam (wishlist).

[IGN] - What's New With Guacamelee! 2

Guacamelee! 2 is releasing on PlayStation 4, and Steam "soon".

Guacamelee! 2 Announced For Steam

DrinkBox Studios Character Featured In Smash Brothers-like Game 'Brawlout'

Though not developed in Toronto or the surrounding area, Brawlout does have a connection to the game development scene here in the GTA. Similar to Runbow, there are a few indie characters in the game and the Smash Brothers-like game includes Juan from Drinkbox Studios' Guacamelee series as a playable fighter.

A humble agave farmer turned legendary luchador, Juan is always prepared to piledrive evil.

Following his demise at the hands of the villainous Carlos Calaca, Juan was revived thanks to the mysterious powers of a magical wrestling mask. Transformed into the luchador he always dreamed of, Juan set out to defeat Calaca, save his beloved and bring peace to the worlds of the living and the dead.

With moves like the Rooster Uppercut, Frog Slam and Dashing Derpderp, Juan is one wrestler you don’t want to grapple with. If that’s not enough, Juan can transform himself into a chicken, should the mood strike him. It’s no poultry skill, I’ll tell you that!

We'll have to wait a bit more to play Guacamelee 2, but until then gamers can get their Juan-action on in Brawlout which is out now on Switch and Steam, and coming Early 2018 on PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
