If you're excited for the upcoming Switch release of La-Mulana 1 & 2, you'll be happy to know that NIS America has dropped a brand new trailer full of gameplay footage for you to enjoy.
You can check it out for yourself above; the father-daughter Kosugi duo must make use of a range of tools in the game and interact with "a myriad of eccentric characters" to make it out of the deadly ruins alive, all of which you'll see in the video.
Just last month, it was revealed that the games will be launching on Switch in March with slightly different dates depending on your region. Alongside that announcement was the reveal of the glorious-looking 'Hidden Treasures Edition' which comes with a copy of the game, an artbook, a two-disc soundtrack, a collector's box, and even a jigsaw puzzle.
Will you be navigating your way through the games' puzzles, traps and deadly Guardians this March? Let us know with a comment.
This reminds me of my old favorite MSX-game "Knightmare 2, the maze of Galious". So, maybe I'll get this one. Anyone else who have played that game?
Still for me falls into that Holy Trinity of Indie. Undertake, Cave Story and La-Mulana. Axiom Verge deserving a VERY honourable mention. I have a birthday in March. Can't wait.
I had the original on WiiWare and as much as I wanted to like it, it was just far too difficult. I'd go as far as to say that it's the most difficult game I've ever played. I didn't have a clue what I was supposed to be doing or where I was to go and with perilous traps round ever corner, I gave up out of frustration having barely tickled the game. That said, I'm willing to give it another go. Why, I do not know but I am.
@Peder7berg La-Mulana was developed to pay homage to Maze of Galious.
In the original PC version of the game, the computer that the main character uses throughout the game is an MSX and I believe you collected game carts of real MSX games - of course, when the game hit WiiWare and Steam as a remaster of the original, the MSX references had to be renamed.
@OorWullie Once you crack it in the beginning the pieces really start to fall into place. You'll still get stuck--a lot--but you'll be making more progress and no longer feel completely aimless.
It's also being sold in Europe:
It reminds of Rick Dangerous 1 & 2 on Amiga / Amstrad..
I loved La-Mulana on Vita, so I’ll definitely be adding this to my rapidly increasing Switch collection!
@nkarafo Right! Those were amazing games, even on the Amstrad. Impossamole was another great game by the same developer (Core).
@Falien You are right! Oh those good memories.. I still have my Amstrad but its floppy drive does not work correctly.
@GamingFan4Lyf Oh, I didn’t know that. Interesting! All the more reasons to play this for me then! Thanks for the history lesson!
The Dark Souls of archaeology themed platformers.
Ugh! I hate spikes!
