Drinkbox Studios Announces Release Date For Guacamelee! 2

Praise the Gods for they have come and delivered. Guacamelee! 2 has a release date, as posted on the PlayStation blog, and Twitter.

On August 21st, gamers can download the metroidvania sequel on PlayStation 4 (which you can pre-order here and save 20%), and Steam (wishlist). The game was announced late last year, and said it would be coming "soon-ish" (which I guess worked out to be about 9 months). You can check out the announcement trailer below.
