Drinkbox Studios announced a new version of their digital hit Guacamelee, titled Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition.
Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition brings the title to next gen systems. It also marks the game’s first appearance on Microsoft and Nintendo consoles. Features included in the release are new levels, new boss battles and new player skills. Previously released DLC such as The Devil’s Playground and costume packs are added to the updated edition. The Devil’s Playground DLC gives challenges for the player to complete, providing rewards and more upon completion. These DLC packs were previously included in Guacamelee: Gold Edition for the PC.
Upon release, Guacamelee received a 91 percent review score from Gaming Illustrated. The title was also nominated as one of the best handheld games of 2013. Drinkbox Studio’s Chris McQuinn also answered many questions we had about developing Guacamelee and its themes.
Since release, Guacamelee has been adored by gamers everywhere. A PC release helped the game get even more attention, especially with its featured spot on a recent Humble Bundle sale. Xbox and Wii U owners should definitely be excited for their chance to play one of 2013’s standout games. That being said, it is strange that the PS3 wasn’t among the consoles announced for the Super Turbo Championship Edition.
