Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition Coming Soon

Guacamelee

Drinkbox Studios announced a new version of their digital hit Guacamelee, titled Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition.

The game will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Wii U. No specific release date was given except that it will be “coming soon.”

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.

Guacamelee was first released on the PS3 in early 2013. Players controlled Juan, a luchador who uses wrestling moves to tackle evil and rescue El Presidente’s daughter. An action platformer at heart, the game was also praised for its Metroidvania gameplay. New wrestling moves were learned and allowed Juan to reach previously inaccessible areas. Guacamelee’s respect of Mexican culture, humor and homages to other game franchises further refined the experience.

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.

Our Take

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.
