La-Mulana EX gets a Western release later this year.
Today both Rising Star Games and Pygmy Studios were proud to announce a partnership which will allow them to bring a new version of the cult 2D action-adventure game, La-Mulana, to PlayStation Vita later this year.
This version, called La-Mulana EX, is set in the fabled ruins of La-Mulana as you help Professor Lemeza Kosugiembark on an exciting though deadly adventure. At first the good professor will only be armed with a whip, though as he moves through the lost city, he’ll find treasures and weapons as well as discover a bounty of unexplored caves, unsolved riddles, and ravenous monsters.
Martin Defries, Managing Director of Rising Star Games, stated, “Working with Pygmy Studios to release La-Mulana EX in the west is testament to our ongoing commitment to bring fresh titles to players everywhere. PlayStation Vita system is a natural fit for La-Mulana, and the exclusive features and additional content included in this new version will intrigue fans and newcomers alike.”
Pygmy Studio’s CEO, Hisashi Koshimizu added, “We are really looking forward to cooperating with Rising Star Games, as their strength
in distributing and selling games in Western territories helps provide creative Japanese games to fans all around the world. My company may be Japanese, but even across borders, we share the same will as a European company to make video games more exciting. We are happy to join our forces with them!”
