Guacamelee Body Slams PSN Sales In April

It was a busy month for video games in April, but one title managed to body slam, elbow drop and pin the competition on the PlayStation Network and PlayStation Vita. And that game is…*dramatic mariachi guitar line*…Guacamelee.

Each month, Sony lists the top-selling games for its various platforms and sub-groups through the PlayStation Blog. In April, DrinkBox Studios’ luchador-infused Metroidvania game, Guacamelee, became king of the hill for both the home and portable console. Those figures may be bolstered by the fact that Guacamelee was a cross-buy title, but still, the game apparently sold mucho copies.

Dark multiplayer hunting game Soul Sacrifice also did well on the Vita while you’ll likely notice multiple games from the Grand Theft Auto series popping up on various lists.

Following are PSN top-five sellers for the month of April. For more details and longer lists, visit the linked blog post.
