Guacamelee 2 gameplay – What’s new?

Guacamelee 2 will feature four player co-op throughout the entirety of its campaign. You can also now play as a chicken in the game and fight as it, using new “Chicken Shot” fighting moves which sees your feathered friend dive diagonally down to break blockades or deal damage to enemies.

There’s also a new ‘Dimensional Waves’ mechanic, with scrolling bars moving across the screen representing the same level through different dimensions, so you’ll have to get creative in order to solve these puzzles when they pop up.
