La-Mulana Will Explore WiiWare In Japan This Month

By Ishaan . June 1, 2011 . 9:20am

Back in February, Japanese indie developer, Nigoro, announced that their WiiWare remake of La-Mulana was almost complete. Now, it has an actual release date…for Japan.


WiiWare in Japan will see La-Mulana on June 21st. Nigoro say that as far as overseas release is concerned, the final check on the localized game is ongoing, and all that remains is for a release date to be determined. This has been a little delayed due to different processing systems at the Nintendo end for those territories, which Nigoro weren’t familiar with. They also reconfirm that the game will be released in Australia.


La-Mulana for WiiWare has been in development for over two years and has seen multiple delays. The game was originally supposed to be released in 2009.

  • You should watch the Japanese trailer that for some reason hasn’t been posted on the English blog yet.

  • Glad it’s still alive.

    It’s the last WiiWare title I’m looking forward to unfortunately (unless Salamander Rebirth is still alive and/or GameArts will release the Magic Obelisk in Europe someday)

  • Is that a guy in a minecart wearing an Indiana Jones hat fighting a dinosaur dragon? Day 1.

    • No. It’s a guy in a minecart wearing an Indiana Jones hat fighting a giant frilled lizard.

    • Exkaiser

      In La-Mulana, you play as a Japanese-American ninja version of Indiana Jones.

      Starring Harrison Ford as Lemeza Kosugi and Sean Connery as his daring dad.

      • I don’t care if you didn’t make the game. Take my money!

  • I can’t wait to see what the hell temple looks like, now XD

  • LastFootnote

    Looks great. I’m glad it’s still coming to North America and Europe. It’ll give me a reason to start up my Wii again.

    It’s going to be hard to avoid looking at FAQs, but I’m going to try to get through it at least once on my own.
