Guacamelee 2 Officially Enters the Steam Ring 'Soon'

It looks like Guacamelee 2 won't stay exclusive to PlayStation 4 for very long, as Drinkbox Studios has announced that the lucha-centric sequel will also come to PC.


One of the more exciting news pieces to come out of the latter half of 2017 was Drinkbox Studios bringing back Guacamelee for round numero dos. But in the months after the Paris Games Week announcement, it appeared that it would be a timed exclusive for PlayStation 4. While that looks to still be the case, PC players (and our own Chris Jarrard) can now rest easy, because Guacamelee 2 has officially been announced for Steam.

For those unfamiliar with this sequel, heroic luchador Juan Aguacate returns seven years after the events of the original game. A new evil has risen, threatening Mexico and all of time and space. Juan will be joined by his friends, as users can jump in with four-player co-op. For an idea of how the Metroidvania adventure is shaping up, check out our PlayStation Experience hands-on preview.

Much like the PS4 version of the game, Guacamelee 2 on PC has been given the release date of Soon™. Anyone looking for a chance to try this game out sooner than that can venture on over to PAX East, where it will be part of the Indie Megabooth. Meanwhile, those looking to catch up on the original Guacamelee or any of Drinkbox's other games can also check out the full catalog on Steam, where all Drinkbox games are being offered for 90 percent off, as part of the studio's 10th birthday.

      Guacamelee is such a good game! I loved it so much that I finished the super hard optional platforming segments to get the "real" ending (though I didn't love those parts very much, lol)

        the hardest part of that tree top segment for me was not knowing that I didn't have all the abilities that I needed.

        I beat the game 100% but I couldn’t beat Super Turbo edition... the Diablo challenges. Waaay too hard and not fun.

          I beat the original and Super Turbo 100%, albeit on different platforms. It was not easy that's for sure.

        If you don't have this game and don't buy it you are as dumb as TLJ fans dumb people.

        the only thing is that i felt like handheld was the perfect platform for it. i don't think they mentioned switch re-release or sequel did they?

          Nope. Something about being a small team and being focused on one thing at a time. I suspect it's because Sony funded part of the project. The first one was a PS exclusive for a year before it hit Steam and other platforms.

          Luckily it looks like Guacamelee 2 will hit PS4 and Steam on the same day.

          I beat the first game on PC. I'm willing to do the same for Guacamelee 2 and I'll rebuy the (eventual) 1+2 pack on Switch.

            I played on the vita but I may bite and play the sequel on the ps4. Too bad they didn't do the 3 lines of code and exported to vita this time

            I hope it's on Steam day and date but everything I'm seeing still says PS4 exclusive. If that changes to 'console exclusive' soon then that's another story. If it is partly funded by Sony as you suspect then maybe they had to be convinced PC sales wouldn't cannibalize PS4 sales, which might explain why it took a long time for it to be announced for Steam after the PS4 reveal.

            It could still be like certain other multiplatform games where the PC version is still delayed a few weeks to a few months later even though it's announced like this. I think this is more plausible.
