If you’ve got a PS Vita, an Indiana Jones DVD collection and a hunger for adventure we’ve got just the thing for you! La-Mulana is the 2D cult phenomenon originally created by NIGORO and their unsatisfied appetite for challenging games. Now remastered by their partners, Pygmy Studio, La-Mulana is back and will be serving punishment to reckless adventures who dare to breach the sacred ruins in pursuit of ancient secrets. We can’t wait to bring this hardcore puzzle adventure game to the PS Vita and take the unforgiving archaeological action wherever we may go.

GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN – 05 August 2014 – Rising Star Games’ digital escapade continues with another new partnership for 2014! Japanese developer Pygmy Studio has partnered with Rising Star Games to bring La-Mulana EX – a new version of the cult 2D action-adventure game – to PlayStation® Vita later this year.
Set in the fabled ruins of La-Mulana, players will help Professor Lemeza Kosugi embark on an exciting but incredibly deadly adventure. Armed at first with only his trusty whip, he’ll traverse through the lost city, finding treasures and discovering a bounty of unexplored caves, unsolved riddles and ravenous monsters. But with the ruins having claimed the lives of everyone that has ever entered, will Lemeza be able to survive in the quest to find the secret to life itself?
“Working with Pygmy Studio to release La-Mulana EX in the west is testament to our ongoing commitment to bring fresh titles to players everywhere.” said Martin Defries, Managing Director of Rising Star Games. “PlayStation Vita® 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.”
“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!” said Hisashi Koshimizu, CEO of Pygmy Studio Co., Ltd. “My company may be Japanese, but even across borders, we share the same will as a European company to make videogames more exciting. We are happy to join our forces with them!”
Packed with challenging enemies, treacherous locations, huge bosses and punishing but rewarding gameplay, La-Mulana EX is guaranteed to be a must-have title for PlayStation® Vita when it arrives later this year.
More details about La-Mulana EX, including the new features exclusive to PlayStation® Vita, will be made available in the near future.
