Metroidvania-Style Action Game “Guacamelee! 2” Has LEGO “Unikitty!” Background Cameo

True, LEGO is quite well represented when it comes to videogames. WB Interactive and Traveller’s Tales have seen to it that LEGO gamers are never left wanting for more digital adventures similar to LEGO Incredibles and LEGO DC Super-Villains. Sometimes, even non-LEGO-themed game developers can’t help but sneak things in.

DrinkBox Studios has quite recently released Guacamelee! 2, a sequel to their 2013 action platform videogame (similar in structure to some Castlevania games by Konami). A mere day or two later, eagle-eyed gamers saw something pretty awesome in the game environment and posted it to electronic gaming news source Gamespew.

Guacamelee! chronicles the adventures of resurrected and super-powered masked luchador Juan and spirit mentor Tostada in a wacky quest through the Land of the Dead (before Disney’s Coco even). The sequel features more adventuring, and in one of the travel locations Juan stumbles into there’s a nifty LEGO Easter Egg.

While exploring the Palace of Pedro Piñata, Juan enters a room full of piñatas to smash up, plus more stuck in the background as decoration. One of these piñata is a colorful unicorn with a kitty head; yep, it’s Princess Unikitty herself! What’s she doing there anyway? Bravo, DrinkBox Studios.

It was probably just a case of LEGO fandom from some of the graphics designers, but LEGO fans may love them a little for that stunt. Fans who’re interested can check out DrinkBox Studio’s Guacamelee! 2. It’s available on Steam right now, and on preorder for the Sony PlayStation 4. The LEGO Unikitty! animated series airs on Cartoon Network.
