Publisher Active Gaming Mediathat La-Mulana 2 will be hitting Japanese consoles (PS4, Xbox One, and Switch) on June 27, 2020. The digital release will cost 2,980 yen, while a physical release for PS4 and Switch will run you 3,980 yen. First-print editions of the physical version will include a soundtrack CD and custom notebook to jot down your insane ramblings. The game is still planned for a Western release, though the date is unknown.
While I was unable to finish the game beforewent live, I did manage to complete it before 2020 came to a close. My thoughts didn’t change much from what I wrote: La-Mulana 2 is absolutely perfect for fans of the original and a total turn-off for anyone not willing to deal with cryptic nonsense. It’s simultaneously a 1/10 and 10/10 depending on how you enjoy video games. Maybe that’s a cop-out, but I really enjoyed the game. I just can’t imagine playing it on Switch and tossing my console across the room. That would suck worse than any death the game throws at you.
