SmashPad Streamkend with Guacamelee! – April 13 at 2 PM ESTApril 13th, 2013 | Written by Chris Selogy | Topic: PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, SmashPad Streamkend
This week’s SmashPad Streamkend will be featuring Guacamelee!, which is the latest game from Drinkbox Studios released on PSN this week for the PS3 and Vita. You may know Drinkbox as the developer behind the two Tales From Space games on PSN, which were platformers starring blobs that gained a lot of praise from fans and critics alike. Their latest game is quite a bit different in that it’s more of a Metroidvania-style game featuring a Mexican luchador that sets out to save El Presidente’s daughter after she’s been kidnapped during a disastrous Day of the Dead celebration. Along the way, he earns plenty of new moves and powers to help him explore the environment and defeat plenty of baddies, as you’d expect from this style of game.
Looking at the upcoming schedule, it looks like indie developers will save the rest of the month since there isn’t much of anything coming out at retail in April. I’m thinking that we’ll feature Dragon Fantasy Book I and/or Sacred Citadel next weekend to fill out that show. The final weekend of the month will likely feature either Monaco on XBLA or Thomas Was Alone on PSN or maybe it’ll be both to make it our first multiplatform stream. May will at least start off strong with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Zombie Tycoon II: Brainhov’s Revenge hitting digital services that first week of the month.
