So, La Mulana is just a few days away. For Nintendo gamers that enjoy an action-platforming challenge and still have love for their Wii system, this has been a long-awaited WiiWare title that's likely to scratch an itch.

Challenge is the word, though, and developer Nigoro has been kind enough to produce a lengthy beginner's guide video. It's narrated by the cute — and cheeky — Mulberk, the "idol of the game", and shows that there's more to this one then running around in a temple and getting obliterated by boss creatures. At one point you get laptop tips from an old man in a tent — we wonder what Wi-Fi service he uses — and Mulberk then explains that you start as a "penniless deadbeat" but need money for a number of useful items. She also suggests that you take notes on the box of tissues next to you, presumably because the game is that difficult that tears are inevitable.

It's worth sticking with this video, as it's not only humorous at points but also provides vital tips that will help in the game. Don't leave your tent — Wi-Fi enabled, of course — without checking it out below.
