La Mulana Coming To WiiWare In 2012 And Then “Other Platformers”


Last we heard, La-Mulana on WiiWare was undergoing its final check and was a little closer to release, following a string of delays that began in 2009. Now, that final check is complete, and the game is planned for release in 2012.


Developer, Nigoro, write on their blog that things “haven’t worked out as they had planned” almost six months ago, and that, while there were several reasons for the game’s delays, they can’t be discussed. “We can say that sometimes making games and the elements surrounding them can be a massive pain in the ass because it’s not all just game development,” the blog post reads.


Additionally, La-Mulana will be released on non-console platforms as well. While Nigoro don’t specify what other platforms the game will be released on, phones and/or PC are likely bets. This non-console version is currently in development, and the screenshot above is from an early build.
