Guacamelee trailer shows off dual-dimension luchador platforming

New, comments

A new trailer from Drinkbox Studios provides a minute-long eyeful of the platforming, brawling, and luchador-inspired world of the studio's upcoming PSN title Guacamelee.

In the game, masked hero Juan Aguacate sets out to save his love by going adventuring with his luchador skills. Guacamelee is billed as a hybrid of genres, melding the exploration and movement of a "Metroidvania"-style game with the combo-focused close-quarters combat of a brawler.

Juan can switch between the Living World and the Dead World on the fly, and in fact must do so to solve the game's platforming puzzles.

Guacamelee is slated to release early this year on PS3 and PS Vita.
