Juan must once again don his special luchador mask and tights, and fight his way through the worlds of the living and the dead (plus time and space) in an attempt to save his family… and the entire Mexiverse! Set in a unique world full of challenges, adventure and humor, Guacamelee! 2expands upon the original game by introducing new levels, enemies, characters, and gameplay mechanics for the ultimate high-flying luchador experience.
“Mexico is such a vibrant and colorful country. Oftentimes that stuff doesn’t make the front page news, so we wanted to put it front and center in Guacamelee 2” said Augusto Quijano, Concept Lead at Drinkbox Studios. “Mexican folklore heavily influenced and shaped the areas, characters, enemies and music of Guacamelee 2. If you were a fan of the first game you will have a completely new, yet familiar experience. If this is your first time playing, I hope you have as much fun exploring this rich world as we had making it!”
