The Nintendo Switch is getting their own dose of hidden temples and habanero as Guacamelee comes to the console.

Developers Drinkbox Studios recently announced that their Mexican wrestling-themed Metroidvania game will be coming to Nintendo's portable console. To make it even better, the first game is already available in the eShop. The popular sequel to the first will be released later this year, however.

The game takes place in a small Mexican village, where an agave farmer named Juan Aguacate has his love interest (who is also El Presidente's daughter) kidnapped by an evil charro skeleton named Carlos Calaca. Instead of defeating Carlos and saving the day, Juan dies and is sent to the land of the dead. With a mysterious mask to aid him, Juan becomes a powerful luchador intend on rescuing his partner.

Guacamelee originally released on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in April of 2013. Later that year, the game would come to PC, and eventually to Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. A sequel to the game was announced back in late 2017 and released only a few months ago on August 21, 2018.

The game's unique art style and classic gameplay make for a perfect Switch game, that's for sure.
