There were plans for a third dimension, called the Land of Nightmares, but it was removed at some point during development - probably when they figured that it would be pretty impossible to swap interchangeably between all three on the Vita

Despite parodying Mexican culture by including pretty much every stereotype ever conceived by the United States, Guacamelee! is careful about getting each reference just right, and the game is as much about celebrating the culture as anything else

The game shifts between the realms of the living and the dead, and there are platforms and enemies that only exist in one world

A "Simulador de Cabra" poster references Goat Simulator, by ##Coffee Stain Studios##.
