Based on the animated series, the game features a cartoonish style.
Ubisoft announced that °Mucha Lucha!: Mascaritas of the Lost Code has shipped on the Game Boy Advance. Based on the popular Warner Bros. Animation series airing on Kids' WB!, "°Mucha Lucha!: Mascaritas of the Lost Code" places gamers into the wild, colorful world of "°Mucha Lucha!" and is set in The Foremost World-Renowned International School of Lucha.
Players will wrestle their way through a wacky adventure infused with the creative art style and hilarious characters - including Rikochet, Buena Girl and The Flea - that live within the "°Mucha Lucha!" world. "°Mucha Lucha!: Mascaritas of the Lost Code" for the Game Boy Advance showcases the three mascaritas (little masked ones) in over-the-top action, episode-style level design, and awe-inspiring wrestling signature moves as they fight to win back the Code of Masked Wrestling!
While in the care of Rikochet, Buena Girl and The Flea, the official "Code of Masked Wrestling" has been stolen from the main office of the School of Lucha. The three mascaritas must find the book or be expelled! The quest to retrieve the book leads them to bizarre landscapes and to a final encounter with the dreaded El Dolor de Kurtz, the evil leader of room 207.

What is Lucha Libre?
First conceived in the 1930s, Lucha Libre, the theatrical style of Mexican pro masked wrestling, was the inspiration for the "°Mucha Lucha!" animated series. Very popular in Mexico and Latin America, Lucha Libre matches are enjoyed by entire families, and the appeal has since broadened into the United States.
