Guacamelee 2, a sequel to 2013's action platformer by developer Drinkbox Studios, is coming to the PlayStation 4 "soonish," as unveiled this morning.

The game will feature four-player co-op throughout the entire game.  Here's the official description:

"Seven years after defeating Carlos Calaca, Juan Aguacate is forced to don his luchador mask again to face a new threat - this time to the very fabric of space and time. Punch your way through a whole new Metroid-vania style world and try to save the Mexiverse! "

In a post on the official PlayStation Blog, Graham Smith, the COO of developer, DrinkBox Studios, details some of the new gameplay elements you'll find in the upcoming game.

Those include the Eagle Boostwhich allows Juan to attach and fly through “boost points” in the environment; Super Chicken!, which not only let your transform into a chicken, but one with a unique set of abilities; and a host of new environmental mechanics. One example of this is “Dimension Waves”, moving windows of space that give players a view into another dimension.

The news comes during PlayStation's kick-off for the Paris Games Week today, an event that PlayStation said would be one of its biggest events of the year.
