Reaching the Future, the hard way
I will drop anything short of bills and gas to drop money for this game. The day it comes out will be the day I download, and I'll probably have the Point card loaded up before then. JUST GIVE ME A DATE!

[up]*swallow*. Tasty. That will satisfy me...for the night.

I'm glad I made sure to see the link in the corner before I clicked.

Blog update!

So the new version is expected to hit Wiiware some time in 2012. Not very surprising, but the update comes with some other interesting news:

The Wii version of La-Mulana is in the being developed for the PC, maybe even on Steam!

My Fanfic.
Or hopefully, a Gamers Gate or Good Old Games release that's cheaper but can also be activated on Steam. :P

I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW IT!!!

It was the logical option. They made hi-res graphics that then had to be dumbed down for the wiiware. Releasing it on PC would allow for them to make it look as shiny as possible. Plus there's a bigger potential audience on the PC than there is with Wiiware owners. I can see a lot of gamers that use Steam digging this game.

I hope it comes soon, but really, this should be the best option for Nigoro. Hope it works out! I know that I'd probably prefer a PC version to a Wiiware one, but we'll have to see.

I'll probably get the Wiiware version because my computer is a netbook that can't even play the original La-Mulana without lagging.

A few days ago, I emailed Nintendo customer support asking about the status of the Wiiware release. Today, they replied, and said that the game's been accepted for release and that the last step in the process is to announce a release date.

Really not anything new, but it really is nice to hear from Nintendo about the whole thing.

I personally think the problem here is that Nintendo is focusing less on Wiiware since the Wii U is coming out this year, so their process for releasing games is slower.

Oh, well that's good to hear.
You got some dirt on you. Here's some more!

For reals this time...please?!

Really, as I said before, I'd now rather wait for the PC version. Wiiware, you had your chance. My Wii will still get a lot of love with Xenoblade Chronicles, Rhythm Heaven Fever, and Super Mario Galaxy, but you lost your archaeologist masochism. sad

YES! FINALLY!

I'm guessing this means it'll be in North America in April, too. The game was submitted to Nintendo of America and Europe at the same time, after all...

Blog Update!

Long story short:

The Wiiware release in Europe and North America is being handled exclusively by Nicalis at this point, so the folks at NIGORO don't have any way of knowing what's next.

Also, work on the PC remake is almost complete!

At this point it's looking like Nicalis lost their chance. Nigoro has a game almost ready to go, thanks to the work on the Wiiware version, and if what they say is true, they plan to be more prudent about developing it. The main question now is what what they plan on doing for the localization and translation side of things.

Darnit, Nifflas, I had higher hopes for the publishing company that you're part of.

FYI: Nifflas, the developer of games like Knytt, Within A Deep Forest, Saira, Knytt Stories, and Nightsky, is a member of Nicalis.

Nifflas himself has done great work. Nicalis...*sigh*

And there you have it.

Kinda expected it tbh if it's true they haven't said anything about it in months.
What a bummer.

Hopefully the PC version is still trucking.

Ok now things are just getting ugly.

I know it's holiday week over in Japan, but Nicalis should have still waited to discuss this with Nigoro before tweeting about it.

The link is rather ominously broken. Can you tell us what he said?
Your funny quote here! (Maybe)

It showed a picture of Nigoro saying that they were completely unaware of Nicalis cancelling the release here.

How do you not tell the developers that their project is cancelled until they read the press release? That's just incredibly dickish.

... Well, I just found even more bad news. And proof that Nicalis and the person running it, is a tool. La-Mulana was actually cancelled 10 months ago. Nicalis officially cancelled it recently, when they were bombarded with questions about the state of the game. And they didn't have any contact with Nigoro for those 10 months.

Yeah, what a bunch of tools.
