Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition - Overview video

It's been a little over a year since Guacamelee first hit PS3 and Vita, so allow us to jog your memory: That game was pretty great.

A lot has happened in the games industry since last April, so I couldn't really blame you for forgetting its charms, its refined Metroidvania structure, its accessible but rewarding combo systems. Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition takes that delightful package, bundles it with the game's hyper-punishing El Diablo's Domain DLC, then tosses a couple new areas, a new ability and a new boss in there for good measure. Essentially, we're talking about a seven-layer dip situation, now.

In this Overview, Chris Plante and I chat about some of Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition's additions, and attempt to generate as many lame Tex-Mex-based puns as our psyches will allow. Plante also makes a startling confession that makes it a lot harder to remain friends with him.
