I was beginning to doubt that the game would ever make it to WiiWare, what with all the terrifying disasters that Japan has suffered this year, and the effect those disasters have had on the country's game developers. Looks like I was dumb for doubting. Not only has "everything been sorted out" concerning the game's WiiWare release, but it's getting an online guidebook as well. The guidebook will be released in two installments, and though the details are a little unclear at the moment, they have stated that the proceeds for at least one of those installments will go to the Japan Relief Fund.
As a long time collector of guide books, I'd be happier with a print version of the La-Mulana guide, but I bet shipping costs from Japan would be brutal. I'll happily take this digital facsimile in it's place. Given how notoriously hard La-Mulana is, I'm going to need it.
