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’).”
In a surprise announcement, and as a special Thanksgiving treat - Drinkbox Studios have announced Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition is out now today on Switch.
Alongside the announcement, they confirmed that Guacamelee! 2 will be coming to Nintendo’s hybrid console this December with the help of Pop Agenda (who helped with the Switch port of number 1 as well). Guacamelee! 2 came out earlier this year on PlayStation 4, and PC. We discussed it on a spoilercast and loved it.
"Peter and Jake get excited for Guacamelee! 2 by talking about composing Guacamelee's soundtrack, retro games and the struggle of finding time to game while working as a full-time composer."

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!
One of the biggest Humble Bundles - the Humble Freedom Bundle is out giving players a huge amount of games, two of them featuring some of Toronto's finest.
Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition from Drinkbox Studios, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP from Capybara games is featured in the bundle which can pick up right here.
"We told you BELOW would be out this summer. Our team worked hard to make that deadline a reality. But after a strong push, we’ve decided it isn’t ready."
Another video! Remember that starting next week they'll be a day early for Patreons!
