Carlos Calaca has kidnapped the President’s daughter to sacrifice her and unite the World of the Living and the World of the Dead. Juan Aguacate is an agave farmer who, after accidentally finding the mask of a legendary luchador, fights as the hero he always dreamed of becoming to defeat Calaca. Not for himself, not for Calaca, but for El Presidente’s daughter, the most beautiful girl in the world. He explores a mystical Mexican landscape as a luchador, using the power of his fists to battle evil.

He uses grappling techniques like the Grouse Upright and Dimension Shifting to uncover new secrets and access new areas.
