For those that missed it yesterday, Sony blew the lid off of Paris Games Week this year!
So much great stuff was announced from the studio itself to its big 3rd party partners, but the biggest surprises to some came in the form of indie love. During the conference, 2 sequels to two beloved indie games were announced, Spelunky 2 and Guacamelee 2. The original Spelunky is an action arcade type game where you play as a miner as they descend into deep caves looking for treasure and trying not to die. It’s loads of fun and completely chaotic when playing with multiplayer with others. The trailer doesn’t reveal gameplay, but from the looks of it, it looks like you’ll be playing as the Daughter of the main character from the original game.
Guacamelee, on the other hand, is a Metroidvania style game where you play as a luchador in an attempt to rescue the president’s daughter from the evil clutches of a fiend named Carlos Calaca. The game is heavily steeped in Mexican lore and has a great shifting worlds mechanic. Definitely worth checking out if you haven’t already. Guacamelee 2 takes place 7 years after the original and has your character Juan Aguacate returning once again to rescue the world! No release dates were given for the games, but Guacamelee 2 is promised to be soon-ish according to developer Drinkbox Studios. Check out the trailer for Guacamelee 2 down below, and tell us in the comments which game you’re most excited for!
