Playing the Guacamelee character in the BRAWLOUT Arcade Mode on Switch

BRAWLOUT is a Smash Bros. inspired indie game with a beautiful presentation and fun moment-to-moment gameplay and is available today for the Nintendo Switch. While it lacks the appeal of having Nintendo’s All-Stars fill its roster, two characters from well-known indie games have become the best characters the game has to offer, including Juan Aguacate of Guacamelee fame.

Those who have played Guacamelee will be delighted to learn that Juan’s moveset is derived directly from his parent game. You will undoubtedly string together uppercuts and bodyslams seamlessly with the muscle memory you developed from Guacamelee. His inclusion in BRAWLOUT, much like Drifter’s, is nuanced, reverent, and feels great to control. Watch us play through the Arcade Mode to see him in action.

While originally launched in April on Steam and later on PS4 and XBOX ONE, BRAWLOUT eventually added The Drifter from Hyper Light Drifter in the months that followed. Now with the release of the Switch version, Juan Aguacate from the smash hit Guacamelee and upcoming Guacamelee 2 is a playable character from the jump. Check out the eShop and try him out for yourself.

As a bonus, here’s a video of the Trust Sircle Podcast team playing the game together.
