We already knew that La-Mulana 2 was coming to the Nintendo Switch: in fact, it was released in Japan earlier this year. But what we didn’t know is that the first one was also coming, and would be included in a collection logically called La-Mulana 1 & 2. Said collection will be released early next year in Europe and North America, courtesy of NIS America.
Here’s a trailer:
And here’s some details about both games:
Your destiny awaits in La-Mulana! Take control of archaeologist Lemeza Kosugi and navigate through puzzles, traps, and deadly Guardians in order to claim the Secret Treasure of Life. You’ll need sharp wits, quick reflexes, and most importantly, all the courage you can muster. Will you succeed in unraveling the secrets of La-Mulana, or will you fall victim to the dangers that surround you?
Renowned archaeologist Lemeza Kosugi has gone missing, and only his daughter Lumisa can find him! Enter Eg-Lana, an upside-down version of the legendary ruins of La-Mulana. Think fast, act fast, and whip hard in order to overcome dangerous traps and elaborate puzzles in your quest to uncover unfathomable secrets. What will you find at the end of your journey: triumph, or defeat?
And here’s the list of key features:
- It Belongs in a Museum! – Two critically acclaimed, devilishly twisted puzzle platformers arrive on modern platforms, and are worth their weight in gold.
- You Call This Archaeology? – With your trusty whip in one hand and an arsenal of guns, shuriken, and other Sub-Weapons in the other, you’ll be able to take on dangerous foes while maneuvering through the nefarious traps of the ruins. Use items like the Ankh to call upon and challenge the ancient Guardians in order to advance.
- Fortune and Glory, Kid – Solve the cryptic puzzles of Eg-Lana using ancient relics such as tablets and keys, and even modern tools like Yagoo software and the Glyph Reader. And when all else fails, push around or smash objects to crack the mysteries wide open!
The collection will be available at retail, and will cost $59.99 (now available for pre-order on the NIS America Online Store). It includes the following:
- LA-MULANA 1 & 2
- Hidden Treasures The Tomb of LA-MULANA Art Book
- LA-MULANA 1 & 2 Archaelogical Anthems 2-Disc Soundtrack
- Siesta in the Ruins Jigsaw Puzzle
