Wrapped in an emotional journey of courage and respect, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom takes players on a majestic adventure as a cunning individual who must rely on his agility to triumph over increasing obstacles. What he lacks in might, his AI-controlled companion makes up for with his towering size and brawn.

This complementary relationship will only continue to deepen and evolve as the story unfolds.
