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.

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
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.
