Announced yesterday and something that totally went over our heads having spent much of yesterday re-playing FAR: Lone Sails, the Mexican themed Metriodvania Guacamelee and Guacamelee 2 are both coming to Nintendo Switch.
The original Guacamelle is available right now from the eShop for $15 USD Having had a quick look, it’s the Super Turbo Championship Edition, the one with all the bells and finery of added DLCs which had previously been out on the Xbox One. The sequel from earlier this summer will come out in December.
For the one or two folks who don’t know, Guacamelle is a left and right side scrolling game inspired by Metriod and Castlevania where you gain power ups as you play to allow access to previously inaccessible areas. Overall the game comes with a tough but rewarding challenge together with a vibrant art style and an enjoyable story to boot.
