Toronto-based developer DrinkBox Studios
has confirmed 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 - this means you buy the game once and get both the PS3 and PS Vita versions. The game will arrive in North America on April 9th and will support Cross-Buy for $14.99 - the European launch date is set for April 10th.
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.
