Guacamelee! is an incredibly popular game on Xbox One due to its bright visuals, stellar gameplay, and Mexican wrestling-themed world. Unfortunately, the sequel, Guacamelee! 2, was only available on PlayStation 4 and other platforms last year. Luckily, developer Drinkbox Studios just announced that the title should launch on Xbox One — with Xbox One X support — on January 18, 2019. The game runs at 4K resolution on Microsoft's upgraded console, and looks absolutely stunning.
The description is as colorful as the game itself. It seems like Juan Aguacate is back and the plot is crazier than ever. You can read the official synopsis below which even references the "Chicken Illuminati."
Guacamelee! 2 will cost $19.99 at launch, but those who preorder can purchase it for $15.99 for the next two weeks. It's unclear if there will be another discount after launch. Guacamelee! 2 garnered strong reviews when it launched in August 2018, and currently sits at 83 on Metacritic.

Oh hell yeah...they just sold a copy!
Awesome, with Xbox Play Anywhere support I'm definitely keeping an eye on this one.. This would be an awesome pick up for Game Pass too
Didn't even know Play Anywhere was still a thing.
If you started your project with the older API, you might have hard time going XPA, otherwise, it's easy. And I suppose, xCloud will help XPA adaption.
XPA is the way to go! I skip the 1st one, but I'll def get this one.
