Graphics Remade Completely

As I mentioned the last time, there isn’t a changeover switch in La-Mulana WiiWare for the original version’s graphics and music. Sorry, we can’t do anything about it. There’s not enough space to contain both in our WiiWare version. Since I’ve already explained why we remade the graphics in our process and policy, I’d like to share the story of how we came out with the new graphics we’ve introduced.. This is the first image I made it. We weren’t originally planning to make this for Wii. However, one possibility I had thought of was Xbox or XBLA. That’s why the resolution is high (wide screen) Once we moved forwarded […]

We’re doing our best to answer your questions.

The most important matter is that LA-MULANA isn’t a port of the original game. It’s an entirely new game, new engine–we’re not reusing the original assets or code.

LA-MULANA official site is full-scale running!

After announcing the forthcoming release of LA-MULANA for WiiWare Edition in North America, nothing changed on this, the official site. But now it’s been refreshed! So far the site has few new pages. And we will upload images one-by-one. Don’t think of this site as simple a general site for information to be released little-by-little. Think of it as a way to exchange ideas between the developers and fans. This official site is here with a purpose. Producing something on a console like Wii is new for us; we’ve never tried it. Although the plans and specifications are almost complete, we don’t know all the details yet. You will surely […]
