In Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, a once thriving kingdom is suddenly engulfed by a dark force.

A century later, a young thief is drawn to this forsaken land where he encounters and befriends the Majin, a mysterious monster-like being with incredible strength. Now in an effort to restore the empire, the two begin a dangerous voyage to reveal the truth about the forgotten past and secrets that lie within the ancient land.
Wrapped in an emotional journey of courage and friendship, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom takes players on a majestic adventure as Tepeu, a cunning individual who must rely on his agility to triumph over increasing obstacles. What he lacks in might, his towering companion makes up for with his colossal size and brawn.
