Mulaka Kicks Off its Launch Week with a Stunning Trailer
Out today on PlayStation 4 and PC. Releasing on Nintendo Switch on March 1st, and Xbox One on March 2nd.
CHIHUAHUA, MX — February 27, 2018 – Beginning today, Lienzo is excited to celebrate the launch of Mulaka, a 3D action adventure game and intimate look at the rich history and mythology of northern Mexico’s indigenous Tarahumara people. Available today on PlayStation 4 and PC, the game is slated to release on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One later this week on March 1st and March 2nd respectively. To kick off the launch week festivities, check out Mulaka’s stunning launch trailer!
Embracing lush and diverse imagery drawn directly from the Sierra Tarahumara region of Mexico that the Tarahumara people call their home, Mulaka’s launch trailer shines a spotlight on the hero’s journey. From facing down giant bosses like the fearsome Watakari – A gargantuan bullfrog, ancient guardian of the mythical Arareko lake – to using the powers of the demigods to transform and explore new parts of the world, Mulaka offers up a fast-paced gameplay experience that’s truly authentic to the culture it so lovingly portrays.
This includes dialog recorded in the Tarahumara’s native tongue, and a world full of creatures based on myths and legends that have been passed down for generations, highlighting Lienzo’s commitment to authenticity throughout Mulaka. Unsurprisingly, the team at Lienzo conducted extensive research in order to achieve this, which included consultations with anthropologists and approval from Tarahumara elders. Those wishing to learn more about this unique and vibrant culture should look no further than “Behind Mulaka,” a three-part vidoc series exploring the Tarahumara’s history and mythology, as well as the importance of preserving culture through gaming.
Mulaka is available today on PS4 and PC, and releases on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One on March 1st and March 2nd respectively. In addition, all PlayStation Plus subscribers who purchase Mulaka in its first week will receive an exclusive dynamic theme for free.
