Drinkbox Studios has revealed that both games in the Guacamelee series are headed to Nintendo Switch; Guacamelee! 2 is arriving later this year, while its predecessor Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition is available to download right now.

We haven't seen a Guacamelee game on a Nintendo platform since the original Super Turbo Championship Edition's launch on Wii U; Guacamelee! 2 arrived on PC and PS4 earlier this year, but no Switch version had been confirmed up until now. The games have been praised for their well-executed Metroid-inspired gameplay, with their co-op nature being a great fit for the Switch's pick-up-and-play multiplayer setup.

If you need convincing on checking out the game on Switch, here's what we said about the game's Wii U release in our review:

"Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition is another top-notch download to grace the Wii U eShop. While the initial campaign may be deemed short by some, the opportunities to explore, collect, take on challenges or simply play it again should deliver more than enough bang for your buck... In addition to being a fun gameplay experience, it's also an example of how artistic vision and clever, light-hearted writing can enhance an experience, an example of what can be achieved when development studios devote themselves fully to delivering a high quality product."

At the time of writing, Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition is available to download from the European eShop for £11.99; we expect the North American store to update soon.
