Nicalis and Nigoro officially announced the WiiWare release of La-Mulana
today, launching a teaser site
for the Wii remake of the 8-bit styled "Action Archaeological Ruins Exploration" game. Nicalis estimates that the game will be completed around November of this year for a "late 2009" release. We'll be able to roll right from Cave Story
(presumably) into another indie platformer remake!
After the break you'll find the trailer, which shows off the lush visual upgrade La-Mulana
is receiving for this release. While we weren't pleased about losing the obvious MSX influence from the original, the new game looks really
nice. The real draw, for us, is the music. It's so '80s-anime!
