His son, El Hijo del Santo, serves as developer.


Set in Mexico City, Santo Contra Los Clones follows the adventures of the homonym wrestler as a superhero who must try to stop the plans of Dr. Clone, an evil scientist. He is determined once again to kill him creating clones, figured in his old enemies (thanks to their DNA), and to use it to dominate the world.
