Last week, we found out that La-Mulana had been listed on Nintendo's website. Being the skeptical type that I am, I wondered if this was some sort of error, or if the Big N was just trolling Wii-owning indie game fans. After all, the Nicalis-published WiiWare version of La-Mulana had been canned, remember?
Well, after last week's report, it seemed as though a new publisher, EnjoyUp Games, was handling the publishing duties of La-Mulana. It turns out that this is all a fact, as indicated by the trailer below, and we can expect the retro-inspired action-adventure game to drop on WiiWare in two weeks. Yay!
I'm really glad that this is happening. It speaks volumes of developer Nigoro's tenacity and determination to get La-Mulana on WiiWare. I love a good underdog story!
La-Mulana is scheduled for its WiiWare release on September 20. It'll be priced at 1,000 Wii Points. Watch out for it.
