We’re excited to finally announce our launch date details for Guacamelee! The game will be released on 10th April, and will support Cross-Buy. This means you buy the game once and get both the PS3 and PS Vita versions. And that’s not all… there’s also a Platinum Trophy!
With Game Developers Conference underway this week in San Francisco, and the IGF award nomination for “Excellence in Visual Art,” we also thought it would be cool to share some early concept art and video footage of the game, so that you can see for yourself how much things have changed. As you can see, Guacamelee! has really come a long way visually since its initial inception.

Hello good-looking, internet-savvy PlayStation.Blog readers. Now that you’ve been buttered up a bit, DrinkBox Studios is excited to announce that our new Mexican-themed co-op-multiplayer dimension-swapping Metroid-vania beat-em-up platformer, titled “Guacamelee!“, will be released through the PlayStation Pub Fund program!
If you have never heard of Guacamelee! the best thing to do is to open your mind, relax, and watch the below trailer:
I know what you are probably thinking… “What is this ‘Pub Fund’? And what does this mean for ME?”
Well it simply means that you can expect Guacamelee! to exclusively launch on the PlayStation® Network for both the PlayStation® 3 and the PlayStation® Vita. That’s a lot of ®’s! You can also expect the game to take advantage of the special features offered by each of the platforms (details of these to come later – stay tuned).
Set in a world inspired by Mexican culture, Guacamelee! features a down-on-his-luck agave farmer named Juan Aguacate, who sets out to save the world when El Presidente’s Daughter is kidnapped by an Evil Charro Skeleton. The story takes place in and around a small village in Mexico, and has the player travelling through “The World of the Living” and “The World of the Dead” on his quest to rescue the girl he loves.
We’ll be showing the game next week at E3 running on both the PS3 and the PS Vita.
