Toronto-based developer DrinkBox Studios
announced that Guacamelee!
, their Mexican-themed co-op-multiplayer dimension-swapping Metroid-vania beat-em-up platformer, will be released via the SCEA "Pub Fund" program on PlayStation Network for PS3 and PS Vita.
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.
Guacamelee! is currently slated for an early 2013 release and will be shown in the Sony booth next week at E3 (July 5th-7th). Several PS3
screens and a trailer have been added in our download section.
