It certainly piqued my interest, but it had not yet got a firm launch date, just a vague “early 2018” discharge window. That changed today though, as Lienzo has revealed while the game will likely soon be hitting PC, PS4, Xbox One, along with Nintendo Switch.
Even the PC and PS4 versions of Mulaka will likely be the first to start, coming out on February 27. The Nintendo Switch version of this game comes next on March 1, together with the Xbox One port rounding things out as it releases March 2. The game is currently available to pre-order platforms, with some of its proceeds going to an NGO which supports the Tarahumara’s region. These NGO donations will also last once Mulaka has been introduced on all platforms.
For those who want to learn more about the Tarahumara culture, Lienzo has previously released a series of movies which go into detail about the culture, its people, and its own mythology. It’s surely an intriguing watch for all those of you who enjoy history, particularly as it’s a aspect of Mexican civilization that isn’t brought up often in mainstream media or education.
In accordance with Lienzo, all of their study wound up spawning a game which includes brutal hand-to-hand combat, a low-poly yet colorful art design, the capability to turn into a demigod, and enemies based on mythological creatures that aren’t that well known. That said, Lienzo considers that the entire game a real representation of those native people, and will educate people to a topic they probably don’t know about.
It is possible to watch the trailer that reveals the game’s launch date below. Mulaka will discharge for $19.99 on PC and PS4 February 27, Nintendo Switch March 1, and also Xbox One March 2.
