Nicalis won't publish La-Mulana on WiiWare in the West, but that doesn't mean the game is entirely, 100% stone cold dead.

We asked La-Mulana director Takumi Naramura if he and the Nigoro team would continue to pursue a western release through another publisher, to which he replied:

The game is completed, we welcome the offer from a publisher. Since there are people who have Wii for playing La-Mulana, I want to do something.

Any publishers who want to get involved, Nigoro is waiting for your call.

We'll have a full interview with Naramura, revealing more about the project's cancellation and Nigoro's future plans. You won't want to miss it.
