April can't come soon enough

If you haven't yet heard, hear me loud and clear right now: Guacamelee! looks to be one of the year's great cooperative games. Everything I've played of this Metroidvania brawler has me convinced you'll want to secure $14.99 for the April 9, 2013 (April 10 in Europe) release on PlayStation Network.

Today, Sony and DrinkBox Studios have also confirmed Cross-Buy support, meaning the aforementioned price includes both the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita version of the game. Do watch the attached launch trailer to get an idea of what's in store. I'm crossing my fingers that Guacamelee! can deliver from start to finish.
