What You Need to Know:
- For those who tuned into Nintendo's Nindies segment where they showcased a plethora of indie titles slated to drop on the Switch, you may have noticed one game in particular that stood out more than the others. 3D action-adventure game Mulaka will bring the rich indigenous culture of the Tarahumara to Nintendo Switch in early 2018.
- Mulaka follows the journey of a Sukurúame - a Tarahumara shaman - as he fights back the foulness corrupting the land. Whether harnessing the culture’s running prowess to engage in fast-paced platforming and hand-to-hand combat, or drawing upon the powers of demigods to transform and approach the Sierra Tarahumara from a different perspective, Mulaka pulls from detailed research to present an authentic representation of Tarahumara culture.
- Embracing a colourful and intricate mythology in an equally vibrant, low-poly visual style, the energy, locales, language and stories of the Tarahumara will come to life for the first time in a video game.
