Guacamelee proves its concept is as hot as a habanero

Guacamelee didn't just appear like the chips and salsa do before the chimichanga arrives at your favorite Mexican restaurant – it took work, and it took a solid idea. The above proof-of-concept video shows Guacamelee before it got gussied up, demonstrating the game's mechanics and moves without any flashy art to get in the way.

Guacamelee is out today on PSN, as a cross-buy title for PS3 and Vita. Apart from all those sweet luchador moves, the game is stuffed with classic video game and internet references.
