Guacamelee!: Super Turbo Championship Edition Announced For Wii U!

One of the more unique high profile indie games in recent memory has been Guacamelee!, an action adventure title that mixes wrestling, exploration and mexican culture. While it may seem like a crazy combination, it works in a way that has only been made possible due to the indie gaming boom over the last few years. Excellent games and brilliant ideas like Guacamelee! can now be realized through the democratization of technology that has brought us classics like Cave Story, Trine 2 and Minecraft. Like many classic indie games before it, Guacamelee! is coming to Nintendo's HD console in the form of Guacamelee!: Super Turbo Championship Edition which lovingly pokes fun at the naming convention of MANY Street Fighter games.

Guacamelee! (developed by Drinkbox Studios) was a major draw to PlayStation owners when it launched as a timed exclusive on the PS3 and PS Vita early last year but there were many fans who hoped to see it on other systems. In the game, you play the role of a Mexican farmer named Juan Aguacate who becomes a heroic Luchador responsible for saving El Presidente's Daughter from an evil charro skeleton named Carlos Calaca. Your new Luchador identity also allows you to jump between both the living and dead worlds to combat the forces out to stop your heroic quest. Guacamelee! mixes Metroidvania style exploration with wrestling combat, gorgeous art and a Mexican inspired soundtrack to create an adventure that sets itself apart from its many contemporaries. The upgraded version of the game will feature all previous DLC, new abilities as well as expansion of the original story with new levels and bosses when it launches later this year. Enjoy!
