** Throwing knives (Rolling Shuriken in the remake) -- try them on [[spoiler:the original's Viy]] ForMassiveDamage. They're also good for detecting fake platforms (but not trapdoors) and edges of solid platforms, especially in [[BlackoutBasement dark rooms]].

A [[VideoGameRemake remake]] on WiiWare was released in Japan on June 21, 2011, with 16 / 32-bit sprite graphics in place of the MSX-style ones, among numerous other changes -- it was developed by the same three guys who did the original. An overseas release localized by [=NICALiS=] was planned, but was [[NoExportForYou ultimately cancelled]] due to [[DevelopmentHell development problems]] and the decline of the [=WiiWare=] service. But, as noted in [[http://la-mulana.com/en/blog/sorry.html NIGORO's blog]], they chose to release the remake on PC, released worldwide on July 13, 2012 at the launch of the English-language Playism Games website. It subsequently saw releases not only on [[http://www.playism-games.com/games/lamulana/ Playism]], but also [[http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/la_mulana/ GOG.com]], [[http://www.desura.com/games/la-mulana DESURA]], [[http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-LAMULANA/la-mulana GamersGate]], [[http://store.steampowered.com/app/230700/ Steam]] and last, but definitely NOT least, finally released on overseas [=WiiWare=] under the publisher [=EnjoyUp=] Games. An updated version of the remake, entitled ''La-Mulana EX'', was released in 2015 for the UsefulNotes/PlayStationVita with a new monster bestiary, online leaderboards, and trophies.

** Naramura's avatar character can be found in the Graveyard of the Giants. In the WiiWare remake, his avatar character appears as a shopkeeper. [[spoiler:His avatar character can also be found in Hell Temple in the form of a bomb throwing enemy and the BonusBoss named simply "The Boss".]]

* MusicalPastiche: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXWNcvz9k-k Curse of IRON PIPE]], the theme to the [[DownTheDrain Spring in the Sky]], borrows about 15 seconds of melody from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flspAofUIIQ the obscure MSX game Ashguine 2]]. Because of this, that part of the song had to be [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong changed slightly]] for the WiiWare version, now called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXkS5sOUW0Y Curse of Ocean]].

* NippleAndDimed: The developers noted that they had to decide what to do about bare-breasted statues in the Tower of the Goddess area. In the PC edition of the remake, said statues are now slightly more covered. However, the developers have provided a graphics file for download which you can use to easily undo this. The censored statues were made specifically for the US WiiWare so the game would get an "E" rating and it was this version of the game initially released on PC. Later versions of the game have the statues uncensored by default.

* RunningGag: The "Curse of Ashguine". Elder Xelpud warns you about it; it turns out to be an iron pipe suddenly sticking out of your crotch. The manual mentions that one type of enemies breathes with an iron pipe originating from its crotch, and the theme of the Spring of the Sky is called "Curse of IRON PIPE"--which contains some musical material that references [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flspAofUIIQ a certain theme]] from the game ''Ashguine 2''. (Said material had to be reworked for the WiiWare version to avoid possible copyright issues.)

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: A few names were romanized differently in the remake: the biggest one is Shorn's name becoming Shawn (further referencing his resemblance to SeanConnery). The giants also have slightly different names, except for Sakit. [[spoiler:Oddly enough, in the Gate of Time, they're given their old names from the Aeon Genesis translation.]] Udjat is also now romanized as Wedjet, and Shu now goes by his Chinese name, Chi You.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: All of the game's assets are in plain image and sound files that you can view/hear normally... except for one: the file depicting the Treasure That Must Not Be Seen appears ''scrambled'', just to keep the surprise.

''La-Mulana'' (ラ·ムラーナ) is a {{Metroidvania}} platformer video game for Windows. It is a freeware game, and was developed by three people who call their development group NIGORO (formerly known as [=GR3=] Project) in Japan as a tribute to the {{MSX}} computer system / gaming console (and includes tons of references to such). You play an Franchise/IndianaJones-esque [[AdventurerArchaeologist archaeologist]] who must solve the numerous puzzles throughout an immense set of ancient ruins.

** Occasionally the player can glitch through the floor or a wall and usually end up on the Surface. Normally this is just an annoyance, but if this happens during the EscapeSequence, there's no way to get back ''into'' the ruins in order to escape normally. The player is left with no choice but to reset and beat [[spoiler:Mother]] again.

Notably, speedruns that permit glitching make this a GoodBadBug and use it to go near anywhere.

* PressXToDie: In the 8-bit version, both permutations of equipping ''F1 Spirit 3D'' and ''VideoGame/{{Contra}}'' have only harmful effects on Lemeza. Equipping the former in slot 1 and the latter in slot 2 turns him into a OneHitPointWonder, while doing the reverse rapidly empties out his health.
