Here’s an overview of the game:

Celebrate the dead and enter the Mexiverse by playing Metroidvania action-platformer Guacamelee! 2 (PS4, PC). Set in a unique world full of challenges, adventure and humor, Guacamelee! 2 expands upon the original game by introducing new levels, enemies, characters, never-before-seen chicken abilities (luchador as a chicken) and gameplay mechanics for the ultimate high-flying luchador experience.

Guacamelee! 2 brings former hero Juan Aguacate out of retirement to stop a powerful and ruthless luchador who has emerged as the ruler of a parallel timeline. Juan must once again don his special luchador mask and tights, and fight his way through the worlds of the living and the dead (plus time and space) in an attempt to save his family… and the entire Mexiverse!

Guacamelee 2 is available now for PlayStation 4 and PC with the Switch and Xbox One version coming in a few months.
