La-Mulana has only been available on WiiWare for nearly a week, but in just one week, La-Mulana has managed to top the charts worldwide. It is the number download in USA, UK, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, France and Spain. I am ecstatic to see the game doing well, it has had a hard road, and it deserves this spot because you can feel the passion that went into the remake.
The full press releases are below, of which MiniFortress gets a mention, twice!!
La-Mulana is a 2D Action Archaeological Ruins Exploration game that was originally released on the PC many years ago. It was developed as a tribute to the MSX with graphics, music and an interface created to emulate the 80’s Japanese computer. La-Mulana has built a cult following since its early release, so you can imagine the excitement when a remake for the WiiWare service was announced. Years passed without mention of a release date and Nintendo fans became somewhat worried about the project. Read more
Today is the day gamers. La-Mulana’s highly anticipated debut on the WiiWare service is just around the corner.

La-Mulana will finally see its WiiWare release in North America tomorrow afternoon. This trailer showcases the game’s history and even includes a nifty dance scene. Will you be buying La-Mulana tomorrow, or have you given up on WiiWare?
I’ve been posting snippets of the La-Mulana WiiWare manual for a week now, but the whole manual is now online for your reading pleasure. Definitely a great read if you’re plopping down 1000 points to buy it when it launches on Thursday.
I’m glad that this game will finally come to WiiWare after a long wait. This trailer gives us a comparison between the classic La-Mulana look and the new updated overhaul. There is a certain charm in the classic style, but the new look is fantastic. However, the most important thing is that the action stays the same!
Looks like La-Mulana will have fantastic battles, awesome exploration, and some solid platforming. Anyone planning to download this game? Sure looks worthy, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Actually, the wait isn’t long at all now, because La-Mulana launches next week, September 20, on the WiiWare service! Full press release after the break.
I’ve been following this game for years, but have kept holding out until it landed on the WiiWare service. Now that it’s coming, I can’t help but wonder whether people still care. Regardless, this trailer helped reinvigorate my interest in the game.
La-Mulana launches on the WiiWare service on September 20, 2012.
