Here’s the premise of the game, per the trailer’s YouTube description: “Seven years after defeating Carlos Calaca, Juan Aguacate is forced to don his luchador mask again to face a new threat – this time to the very fabric of space and time. Punch your way through a whole new Metroid-vania style world and try to save the Mexiverse!”

According to its Steam page, Guacamelee! 2 will have four-player co-op, new wrestling moves and a new upgrade system that involves finding “trainers” and completing their challenges in order to develop movement & combat abilities.

There will also be twice as many enemy types as there were in the first Guacamelee! game and a roster of new bosses.

We loved the first game and gave it a glowing review back in 2013. Here’s hoping that the sequel really improves on the original and blows us away.
