Games publisher Playism confirms that La-Mulana 2 is getting a digital and physical release on console in spring 2019.
La-Mulana 2 is the long-awaited sequel to Takumi Naramura’s cult 2005 metroidvania. The first game was originally released on PC, before being remade for the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation Vita, where it went on to sell over 600,000 copies.
Funding for the sequel was secured in 2014 – with over $265,000 raised via Kickstarter – and the game debuted on PC earlier this year to a positive critical response.
La-Mulana 2 is now getting a digital release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch early next year, with physical versions also planned.
La-Mulana 2 follows Lumisa Kosugi – the daughter of the first game’s protagonist, Lemeza – as she explores the ancient ruins of La-Mulana.
As the trailer shows, it’s a light-hearted romp packed with riddles to solve, items to unearth, monsters to slaughter, and multiple maps to explore. And check out that squalling guitar.
If you want to sample the game for yourself – and you’re in Tokyo this weekend – the PC version of La-Mulana 2 will be playable at the Konami Booth at TGS 2018.
