Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition will be arriving for additional systems that aren't the PS3, PS Vita and PC this July. To be more exact, Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition will be making its system debut on the PS4 beginning July 1st and on the Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One starting July 2nd.
Polygon caught the announcement from Drinkbox Studios, who made it known that their side-scrolling, cooperative beat-'em-up would be making it to additional systems. And the more systems, the better... well, at least gamers who don't own one of the other platforms the game is available on will be able to play it. Although, just about everyone who has a PC made within the last decade would be eligible for playing the game unless you just preferred playing from the comfort of your couch.
The upcoming title will feature new bosses to face down against, new areas to explore, new abilities to master and brand new enemies to curb-stomp into oblivion. You know, it's all the typical stuff from a super-powered, turbo-magnificent, amazing-balls edition.
Even though I have the game I've never had a chance to play it, but colleague Pete Haas seemed to enjoy the game enough to add it to his best of 2013 list, so that gives you a gauge as to whether or not the game could be worth the time investment.
The more interesting thing about this bit of news isn't that the game has a release date or is coming to additional systems outside of the PC and seventh-gen PlayStation family, it's that it's coming to the Xbox One.
We previously knew that Guacamelee was one of the 25 indie games coming to the Xbox One, but before today we had no idea when it was coming.
A lot of these titles just seem to be launching out of the blue, like 1001 Spikes, a game I wasn't really familiar with but happened to see one day just by randomly browsing through the Xbox store.
We now have Guacamelee, Super Time Force, Nutjitsu, 1001 Spikes and Strike Suit Zero as part of the confirmed collection of indie games for the Xbox One, but now it's a matter of questioning what comes next? I'm deeply curious about Riptide GP2 by Vector Unit, as I thought it was a pretty cool game on PC and if they maintain many of the same features on the XB1 version then that would be pretty cool, especially if it had stuff like a properly fleshed-out split-screen and online racing mode.
For now, you can look for Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition to launch for the eighth-gen systems in two week's time, this July. Need more info? Feel free to pay a visit to the official website.
