Good things come to those who wait!

When Nicalis decided that it would not be publishing the WiiWare version of La-Mulana, it felt like a bitter end to an extensive but ultimately fruitless dev cycle. It was eventually released on PC, but many held out hope that somehow, in some way, developer Nigoro would find a way to make magic happen.

If you mosey on over to Nintendo's games page, you'll notice that publishing duties have been handed off to Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ dev EnjoyUp Games. You'll also notice that the game is priced at 1000 Wii Points ($10), a full five bucks less than the PC port available on Playism.

As I said in my review, La-Mulana is excruciatingly taxing on both the mind and body, but it's a game that you need to experience regardless because it's so friggin' good. Now you'll get your chance to play this glorious remake the way it was intended once it drops on September 20!

Rain World has competitive slugcat multiplayer and bat attacks

Rain World is still the best. And it's coming to Vita (and more). Jonathan Holmes went and chatted with Rain World's developers at PAX. In the background you can see a very early alpha multiplayer sandbox that looks to be in the vein of Samurai Gunn and Towerfall. You get points for eating flies and lizards and killing each other. Did you know lizard only has one "z"? That's weird.more
