DrinkBox Studios has announced a “Mexican-themed co-op-multiplayer dimension-swapping Metroid-vania beat-em-up platformer,” titled Guacamelee. The game will be released through the PlayStation Pub Fund program on PSN for both Vita and PS3. The game is set in a world “inspired by Mexican culture,” where a down and out agave farmer named Juan Aguacate 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 in order to rescue the damsel. The game will be shown for the first time at E3 next week. No release date just yet. Watch the trailer below.
