La Mulana EX hitting the Vita this year

The Japanese crowdfunded game La Mulana is getting its own EX-rated version on the Vita, arriving later in the year. Published by Rising Star Games, developer Pygmy Studios is bringing an updated version of the original game, set in the fabled ruins of La-Mulana. Looking very like Fred, or the endless 16-bit platformers, it has potential.

In the game players will help Indy-wannabe Professor Lemeza Kosugi explore 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?
