WiiWare adventure La-Mulana has had a tricky year of it so far, with the biggest blow when it failed Nintendo's lotcheck last month. Now developer Nigoro has admitted the game will not be out in 2010, with its most sincere of apologies.

As a result, we come to the conclusion we abandoned to release it in 2010.
Because, it’s better to enhance the completeness instead of completing it roughly in a hurry. We are so sorry.

Above all, we are sorry for the people who are waiting LA-MULANA. And also, we are sad to be considered that NIGORO is always late.

In an effort to make it up to its long-suffering fans, Nigoro is now aiming to release its “Hell Sanctuary" downloadable content at the same time as the game itself, sometime in 2011.
