Securing the fate of the world is a heavy burden to bear. Today, Assemble Entertainment and Grimbart Tales are thrilled to announce a 21st March 2022, Steam launch date for ITORAH, the extraordinary 2.5D Mesoamerican-influenced side-scrolling platformer coming to Steam and GOG. Embark on an unforgettable journey with the titular Itorah through the exotic and mysterious world of Nahucan, meeting strange, masked beings and discovering the secrets behind a terrible plague that has befallen the land and its inhabitants. Complimenting the release date news, the developers have also unveiled a brand new gameplay trailer, showcasing the various bosses and enemies to be found (and slain!) in this charming hand-painted Metroidvania-esque adventure.

Find ITORAH on Steam

ITORAH showcases a visually stunning art style and breathtaking environments, complemented by carefully crafted depictions of verdant forests, rocky cliffs, and ancient temples. Despite its deceptively breathtaking visuals, the story is a tragic, bittersweet saga of sacrifice and loss. Together with her smart-mouthed sentient weapon, an axe named Koda, Itorah will journey through the cursed land while unraveling its mysteries, told through enchanting gameplay and meticulously illustrated cutscenes.

Key Features of ITORAH Include: 

  • Hand-Crafted Quality: Explore a beautifully realized world inspired by South and Central American landscapes, each lovingly hand-painted by the development team to breathe life into the world of Nahucan
  • Good ol’ Fashioned Platforming: When she isn’t hacking and slashing her way across the landscape, Itorah will need to keep her jumping and dodging skills as sharp as her axe as she conquers progressively more difficult puzzles and platforming challenges
  • Who’s the Boss: With axe in hand, battle and subdue Nahucan’s voracious fauna through exciting and challenging boss fights
  • Make Friends Along the Way: As the old saying goes, the “real treasure is the friends we make along the way.” Meet a variety of odd, quirky characters who may or may not help Itorah on her quest.
  • Captivating Sound Design: ITORAH’s lovingly crafted, dynamic soundtrack invites players to lose themselves in the beauty of Nahucan

ITORAH launches on Windows PC via Steam and GOG on 21st March 2022, for £14.49 / €19.99. Keeping with Assemble’s charitable endeavours, there’s also a  “Save the World ” edition available for £25.99 / $29.99 preorder. This special edition contains the official ITORAH soundtrack and artbook, with 10% of the proceeds donated to Survival International, a charity supporting indigenous people worldwide.
