There’s no shortage in using mythology in video games. Mostly, however, is either Greek or Norse mythology and sometimes Japanese gods and goddesses. But Guardian of Lore is bringing to the table native Latin-American folktales and myths, particularly from cultures like that of the Incas and Aztecs. You can now experience these cultures on Nintendo Switch for $13.99.

Guardian of Lore is a 2.5D action-platformer that offers RPG elements. Players take on the role of prince Sayri, the new guardian of a mystical library which houses ancient folktales from lost Latin-American civilizations. By using the power of the Amulet of Yebichai, Sayri can bring the world of each book to life and save the legends from the corruption that’s destroying them from within. Overall, the game has players experience various exceptional myths, meet unforgettable characters, and even fight to make sure that the knowledge and lore are kept alive.

Key features of the game include:

  • Enjoy an epic adventure-platformer that comes with a classic style.
    • Jump, run, fight, and make your way across the world of each folktale you enter.
    • It’s a callback to platformer classics that offers a twist and brings new life to the genre.
  • Discover ancient cultures and exotic mythologies with a Latin-American flavor through the game’s art, characters, and immersive narrative.
  • Become a bookworm battlemage.
    • Make the most of Sayri’s unique spell casting and combat systems.
    • Customize them to your liking to complete each chapter.
  • Collect knowledge hidden inside the levels to unlock more powerful abilities for Sayri.
  • Defeat evil mythical creatures lurking within each tale and reveal the secrets to advance in the story.
  • Replay each chapter and find out the number of tale details you recovered can lead to different endings.

Before the release on Switch, Guardian of Lore had been launched on PC through Steam back in May of this year. It’s arriving on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles on December 13.
