Guacamelee dev 'thrilled' with reception, planning DLC and possibly a sequel

Guacamelee developer DrinkBox Studios is "extremely thrilled" with the game's critical and commercial reception, and the company is working on downloadable content and thinking about a sequel, said co-founder Graham Smith in an interview with IGN.

DrinkBox released Guacamelee in April on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, and it was the best-selling PlayStation Network title for the month in North America and Europe.

"We're extremely thrilled with the reaction," Smith told IGN, saying that Guacamelee is performing much better than the studio's previous games, which include the PS Vita title Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack. However, Smith noted, "We're not selling millions of copies of the game."

Smith confirmed that DrinkBox is in the "design phase" on Guacamelee DLC, and, when asked about a sequel, said, "I don't know yet."

He said the studio is already discussing the possibility of working on a new IP for its next game, and is also considering a sequel to Guacamelee. "But we haven't really made any decisions either way with that," said Smith.
