Thanks to Cinefix, the fantasy epic is brought to life with the beloved Hayao Miyazaki film providing the game’s plot. Ashitaka has a quest, one he has to fulfill through wit and skill. He’s got plenty of allies and enemies to encounter along the way—all while the feel and tone of a Miyazaki film remain intact.
