Developer DrinkBox has announced a new version of their unique platform beat ’em up called Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition and they’re bringing it to the Wii U. In addition to previously available platforms, this new edition of Guacamelee will be launching on the Wii U, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Xbox 360. Currently no details about this new edition have been released, so we’ll keep you updated.


If you’re unfamiliar with Guacamelee, it’s a platformer with puzzle aspects about a luchador who travels between the living and dead worlds in order to rescue his town from a catastophe that occurs during the Dia de los Muertos celebration. The combat in the game features several combos with skills that are collected through world exploration, with combos being necessary in order to defeat the numerous bosses that block your path. Check out this trailer for more.

    Is it me or does it seem like indies are just flooding into Wii U?

    • Brandon Gardner

      They seem to be the only ones who support the Wii U

    • They are, and it’s a good thing. It’s helped turn around sales of the PS Vita.

  • Lil J Moore

    Super Turbo Championship edition? Did some of these guys work for Capcom?

    • That guy who hates Spike

      That’s the joke.

      • Pablo Lavín

        Actually its Fun:

        Super (Street Fighter II)
        (Street Fighter II) Turbo
        (Street Fighter II) Championship Edition

  • Elias Ruelas

    Ugh! Developers have to really let me know in advance so I don’t buy the game multiple times. =P

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    Cool. I never got to play through the original game so nice to see this coming to Wii U. You can expect my full cooperation Ashley King.

  • e_rocket

    Yeah!!!!! this game looks grate, I’ve honestly being waiting for this to happen , I almost bought a vita just to play Guacamalee… I’m happy I don’t have to buy vita now….

    For me, this will be one of the must exiting realizes for the wi U this year… haha. 😀

  • Easily one of my favorite games of last year so I’m super glad to see this game coming to WiiU. May it sell well and lead to many more awesome games from those guys.

  • Sam

    I. Do. Not. Care. At. All!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Nate

      If you don’t care, why bother to post?

  • NintendoFan

    Why does it seem that 75% of news stories are indie game announcements?

    • Pablo Lavín

      Because the Indies are the Third Parties of Wii U. Maybe I’m exaggerating, but, actually some of the indies are way better than some AAA

  • Potemkin

    Looks very cool!!! Will get it! 😀

  • larz_1234

    Heard great things about this game. May get it when it comes out.

  • David Trail

    Cool, I haven’t played this on my ps3 or ps vita. Gonna pick this up on my Wii U as it is my main console now as it has so many awesome games!

  • Nate

    One of the better indie games I’ve ever played and a fun genre mashup (puzzle/adventure/platforming/action). Definitely recommended to anyone that hasn’t already played it!

  • Cool.

  • Ethan Corey Cathcart

    When it comes out on the Wii U, I recommend that you guys get it! It’s one of the highest quality “indie” game out there and all the references to games and memes are hilarious!! This is a must buy.

  • GregoryTheRainMaker

    Good stuff. 😀

  • Miguel Angel Barrueta Hernánde

    im mexican and i approve this! day one buy for me!

  • Spencer Manigat

    If it comes to the 3DS, I’ll buy it.

  • Wren Justin Umlauf

    Too bad I just got this in the Humble Bundle on PC. Otherwise I’d probably be getting this

  • Phaz0n

    Keep the indies coming!

  • nintendope

    If only they could bring Volgar the Viking to the WiiU

  • mar laguna

  • Josiah Parsons

    Cool, but I just got Gold Edition from Humble Bundle for about $00.75

  • Ismael Ototo

    ¡Viva México, cabrones! There’s no way I’m missing this game ;’3

  • wober2

    Awesome! I might play this again because of this.

  • Madmagican

    Awesome, I 100%ed the original with my brother on PC when the game came out and this is a perfect excuse for me to play it again

  • oontz

    This game is a ton of fun… I already have it for psvita so I wont be getting it for wiiu. But anyone who doesn’t have it, GET IT! Great fun.
