As part of the announcement, DrinkBox Studios’ Gary Corriveau made a post on the PlayStation Blog going over some of Guacamelee! 2’s features. In addition to a larger map and noting that Aguacate will have new Eagle Boost, GOOOTCHA! and Rocket Kick abilities, Corriveau noted some changes to the pollo form. When Aguacate is a chicken, he will have access to new abilities. For example, he could use Pollo Glide to temporarily fly in windy spots. A Pollo Shot could be used to bounce off of certain platforms or break purple blocks to get through spaces. He can also Pollo Slide his way through orange blocks.
