La-Mulana is getting a sequel. Nigoro revealed the news on its blog today, but didn’t share much in the way of details.
The company said:
To tell the truth, this project launched when we began to develop WiiWare version’s LA-MULANA.
Before we set up NIGORO, we originally had an idea that making a game is such a tough work, so we wouldn’t last unless we publish another gameusing same system and replaced data.
LA-MULANA2 was born on that idea, and I would have to say “New scenario on LA-MULANA system”.
This is a sequel to LA-MULANA that we were saying it was impossible.
You might think “Can you make the continuation of that story?” or “Is there few idea for the ruins game?”
So, I said this project had simultaneously started with LA-MULANA four years ago.
We will give away new information little by little. In the meantime, how about finding underplots of LA-MULANA2 that are scattered in LA-MULANA?
Interestingly, there is a playable demo at the Tokyo Game Show which allows players to walk around in a field. After TGS, development will be started “from zero”.
It isn’t clear if La-Mulana 2 will head to Nintendo platforms at this time. But given how the original game hit WiiWare, hopefully the sequel has a chance of coming to the Wii U eShop.
