Welcome to a new episode of Watch Us Play. This week Erik and Joey don luchador masks to become heroes tasked with saving the world in Drinkbox Studios’ Guacamelee!
Guacamelee! is a brawler/platformer that puts the term “Metroidvania” to good use. Speaking of wearing your influences on your sleeve, Guacamelee! is laced with references to classic video games and the characters that inhabit them. We spend some time pointing out a bunch when we’re not exploring caverns and beating the hell out of poncho-wearing skeleton creatures.
Guacamelee! is available now for PS3 and PS Vita, and it’s part of Sony's “Cross-Buy/Cross-Save” promotion, meaning you can buy one copy and get both versions. You can also transfer your saves between platforms via the cloud. If you like what you see above, pick it up. We recommend it.
