Chow Down on Guacamelee 2 When It Heads to PlayStation 4 "Soon-Ish"

How many memes will slide their way into this game?

When the Metroid-like platformer Guacamelee! released back in 2013, it was only a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita exclusive. Later, it expanded to platforms far and wide. DrinkBox Studios' follow-up Severed wasn't as lucky in terms of fan adoration, even if it eventually was ported beyond the PlayStation Vita, where it was once an exclusive.

Today during the Paris Games Week pre-show for its Sony event, DrinkBox announced that they're heading back to their roots. Guacamelee 2 was unveiled today, a sequel to the first meme-stuffed, adorably animated platformer. According to DrinkBox Studios in the game's trailer's description, the team's been quietly working on Guacamelee 2 for the past few months. The sequel is making massive leap into the future, taking place seven years after the events of the first game.

The game will have co-op, like the last game. The game is coming "soon-ish" according to its trailer, exclusively to PlayStation 4 for the time being. You can watch its trailer below.
