Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition

DrinkBox unexpectedly brought Guacamelee to Switch today – with its sequel following in December. Take a look at some footage below.

Next week, DrinkBox’s Severed will land on the Wii U eShop. It’ll be the second release on Nintendo platforms from the indie developer. Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition previously released on the Wii U eShop.

Regarding Guacamelee’s sales on Wii U, DrinkBox told NintendOn:

“We were very satisfied with the performance of Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition on the Wii U so are excited to be bringing Severed to the Wii U/3DS. I’m not sure if cross buy will boost the game’s sales but we really just wanted to give the Nintendo player base the option to decide how they wanted to enjoy Severed.”

DrinkBox was also asked about the possibility of Severed on NX or something new entirely. There’s nothing to announce, but the company does hope to work with the platform in the future.

“Maybe? We don’t even know what the NX is so it is impossible for us to say. What I can say is that we’ve been happy to work on the Wii U and 3DS so hopefully can continue that relationship with Nintendo’s NX – whatever it is!”


Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition is out today on the Wii U eShop. For a successful download, you’ll need to reserve 802MB of space. That’s far from the smaller eShop games, but it’s not too large either!


Console specific skins are “unlikely” for Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition. In other words, you probably won’t be seeing a Mario-inspired outfit in the game anytime soon.

While DrinkBox Studios’ Chris McQuinn isn’t entirely opposed to the idea, it probably won’t happen since console owners would need to be very cooperative.

McQuinn told Destructoid:

“Possible…but unlikely. That requires a LOT of cooperation from the console owners. If somebody was really stoked about it and approached us, then ya, but we have no immediate plans.”


Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition is coming to Wii U (and other platforms) on July 2, DrinkBox Studios has revealed. The game is priced at $14.99 / £11.99 / €13.99.
