We've just received word from Nicalis that their brand new official La-Mulana Website is now live and ready for you to check out!
There you'll find everything from the official gameplay trailer to screenshots and even an ongoing blog that will keep you up-to-date on all La-Mulana happenings.
The beloved indie adventure game comes to the WiiWare service!
Sealed since long ago the ruins of LA-MULANA are yours to explore. Assume the role of famed archeologist, Dr. Lemeza Kosugi and uncover the remains of an ancient civilization, the origin of man and all life as we know it. Developed in conjunction with Nicalis, Inc. the re-imagined LA-MULANA features a robust all-new game engine built specifically for LA-MULANA with vibrant hand-drawn artwork, original audio and special effects not seen in the original—which used a limited 16-color palette.
Additionally, the new console version of LA-MULANA will expand the mysteries of the ruins with downloadable content support including new gameplay modes (such as Boss Rush), special stages and more. From Japan to China, Europe and North America, Nigoro has gained a wide audience. Fans all over world have experienced games designed by Nigoro, “We want to develop more games for consoles and bring back that ‘excitement of classic games.’ It’s the concept for our games in the future, so thank you and bon appétit for the support!,” said Shoji Nakamura of Nigoro.
As usual, we'll keep you informed about any La-Mulana developments and we'll have a full review of the game when it hits the WiiWare service in November. Until then, enjoy the new official web site.
Never played this. The WiiWare version is gonna be the first time I play this.
You're in for a treat. It's a fun little game.
I'm in the same boat as fudgenuts.
this game is so crazy. i havent beaten it, and i shall save that for the wiiware version
Cheers for the link.
We need more platformers like this on WiiWare. Definite buy.
This is a day-one purchase for me.
I played the original version. Cave Story it ain't, but it's a fun little game.
And with this version I can finally play the game in English!
So I take it I should add this to the radar?
I actually prefer this to Cave Story myself. Just me personally.
I thought I had played this before. I just got it confused with Spelunky, though, which looks pretty similar. But I'm still excited for this. The game gets a lot of love in the indie scene, so I'll certainly be getting it on WiiWare.
I just wish CS would come out already. But this looks good too.
Buying, though I wish they'd kept the MSX look.
I have never played La-Mulana before but I am very interested in this game. Chances are this is going to be a day one purchase for me!
This looks really good. I'll buy it.
Is this game going to be like Cave Story? Should I buy Cave Story or La-Mulana?
I also prefer this to Cave Story. Because I already played the PC version of Cave Story multiple times and I don't think that the WiiWare Version has anything new to offer that makes it worth playing again.
Cave story esque. I have no inclination to download cave story - though for 500 points......
EDIT: Just looked at the trailer on the website. Think I will give this some serious consideration! Can't wait for thr release and review!
@DK vs. KK:
Buy both. Cave Story should be coming out very soon, and La-Mulana towards the end of the year.
Cave Story is more or less a linear adventure tha can be beaten in around 6 hours. It is also one of my favorite games EVER. La-Mulana is brutally hard, more exploration-based (the entire world is HUGE), and can take around 20 hours to beat.
@Omega: Dohn't forget about DLC, as both Cave Story and La-Mulana will have it.
From the looks of it, it seems like an 8-Bit Indiana Jones in a way. Either way, this is a definite download.
It's on par with cave story and i expect this to be no less than awesome.
Nicalis is quickly becoming the premier developer on Wii Ware.Of course we shall wait for some reviews first.
