To do so, he has no choice but to draw upon the powers of demigods.

Here’s the key features of Mulaka on Nintendo Switch:

  • Become the legend: Harness the renowned athletic talents of the Tarahumara as you engage in fast-paced platforming and hand-to-hand combat.
  • Explore Sierra Tarahumara: Traverse a 3D world inspired by the legendary, real-life landscapes of northern Mexico, rendered in a vibrant, low-poly visual style.
  • Based on real mythology: Draw upon the powers of demigods and battle fearsome creatures pulled from the rich lore of the Tarahumara people.
  • Live the culture: From narration in their indigenous language, to music unique to the region, experience an authentic representation of Tarahumara culture.
  • Mix up your gameplay: Leverage the Tarahumara’s physical prowess, demigod transformations, puzzle-solving and the crafting of magic potions as you save humanity from the corruption plaguing it.
