In this “wholesome adventure,” you play as the adorable mouse Lila who, after a fateful encounter on a stormy night, meets the Spirit Guardian Lumion who is in need of help and lends his powers to her in his place.
Lila must climb, scamper and shock her way around the otherwise quiet village of Sainte-et-Claire on a quest that will see you befriend playful electrical spirits called Kibblins, help out the villagers in need and witness “an emotional and heartwarming experience” that will show that everyone can be hero, no matter their size.
“We are really excited to announce that The Spirit and The Mouse is coming to the Nintendo Switch!” enthuse Alblune co-founders Alexandre Stroukoff and Lucie Lescuyer. “Our colourful world and characters feel right at home on this platform, and we hope the players will enjoy playing as a little mouse on the go as well as on the big screen.”
