There are a few ways into the cold, hardened heart of a Joystiq blogger, but there is perhaps no better way than a play on words. With this in mind, we are pleased, nay, forced to reveal Guacamelee, the latest title from Tales from Space: About a Blob developer Drinkbox Studios. Presumably, both Macho Cheese and Hits and Salsa were taken.
The downloadable title follows the likes of Metroid, except instead of a badass space bounty hunter, players take up the role of badass luchador, Juan Aguacate. And, instead of reaching new areas with jump boots, you do it with wrestling moves. Also, Juan can swap between parallel worlds at will. In other words, it makes a lot more sense than Metroid ever did.
No release date or platforms have been announced. If you happen to be in the Toronto area, you can try out Guacamelee during the First Person Show at Digifest on October 30.
