Drinkbox Studio's platforming puzzle game Guacamelee will launch on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Spring of 2014 and will feature new content, according to an IGN report that was published earlier today and has since been removed.

According to the article, the PS4 and Xbox One version of Guacamelee will have two new worlds with new enemies, a "chicken-bomb" ability and enhanced visuals and particle effects.

New content is appealing. Not sure how they'll really be able to upgrade the visuals. Game is much more focused on art than technical prowess.

I really hope so. I just got it on the current week sale and I'm nearing the end of my first playthrough. I want to get three platinum trophies out of this one.

Cross buy?
I have the PS3 version, but never played it. Then got the Vita version from PS+ and never played that. I'd like to go for the hat trick.

I hope it's cross buy. I liked the game but got busy and never finished it. Would love to play with the DS4.

This is a new personal record for a better version of a game getting announced after I purchase the original. It's been about 8 minutes.

Not that either of those versions are going to launch for under $4.

So what's this one gonna be, Guacamelee Gold Gold? :p Hope it comes to Steam sooner rather than later.

You'll all stop playing once you reach this
Nah, that part was easy. Honestly, I found most of the story relatively easy and I'm not much good at platformers. The optional stuff though... Yikes.

....I don´t want this to sound like port begging....but It is kind of strange that there are so many Nintendo references (El Majora, the Choozo statue among others)

...and this game comes to everything BUT Nintendo.

C´est la vie.....I guess

...but great regardless.

Sounds like a whole new game, which means it won't be cross buy most likely

If you are interested in games outside of Nintendo published titles you should probably invest in another console or a PC.

completed the vita version a while ago , its a good game but i found the humor over the top sometimes and the setting is kinda annoying at least compared to metroid .
i think the devs should have tried to do another game instead of porting this and adding dlc .

I'll happily double dip on the game if it's got extra content. I loved every moment of it (along with the DLC) and would love more Guacamelee content.

Everyone missed that Mutant Blobs Attack is coming to X360/PS3 and Drinkbox is making a mobile game

I'm due for a replay. This game was one of my year's faves, Drinkbox is on my radar for anything they develop in the future.

I'll get it again, but I'm really hoping it just shares a trophy pack with the others so I won't have to do all the DLC trials again.
