Publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer Grimbart Tales have announced that Itorah has just landed on Switch. You can pick it up digitally on the eShop.

Itorah is a 2D side-scrolling Metroidvania game that’s deeply ingrained in Mesoamerican style and themes. Players take on the role of the titular Itorah, the only human in the strange and unexplored lands of Nahucan.

Here’s some additional information:

You are the only human left in a world full of masks.

Guide Itorah through a fantastic world inhabited by strange masked beings.

Mankind has vanished and Itorah seems to be the last of her kind! To uncover her past she will have to pick up her loud-mouthed axe and fight her way through lush forests, dangerous temples, stormy cliffs and more hand-painted biomes.

Their innocent quest for knowledge quickly turns into a mission to save this strange new world from its biggest threat: A mysterious plague that threatens to consume everything.
