La Mulana Canned for Western WiiWare Release

La Mulana Canned for Western WiiWare Release on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Fancy getting your mitts on the WiiWare version of La Mulana? Pubisher Nicalis has tweeted its cancellation.

The Nintendo download did make the cut last year with a Japanese release, however for the time being it'll stay that way - on Wii at least - as apparently Nintendo did not approve the project for a release in North America and Europe.

If Nintendo says a game isn’t ready for release, then it’s not ready for release. Called it unfinished or unapproved - whichever you like.

The PC version is still coming along, says developer Nigoro - currently in the middle of debugging and should be released shortly.

Thanks to C3 reader, LinkyShinks for the tip.

NIGORO added DLC to the Western release and Nintendo appear not to have been too happy with the changes, as well as the publishers. It's the worst case of this kind of thing so far - three years of waiting for nothing.

I'll be getting the English version of the game on PC instead.

Think I'll be getting it on PC instead as well.

A real shame, it was the last Wiiware game I was really looking forward to :/.

Nicalis... full of false promises as always. Glad VVVVVV for 3DS is finally coming to Eurrope on May 10th though..
