Brandish they whip and sharpen they wit because here comes “La Mulana 1 & 2: Hidden Treasures Edition” to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 17, 2020 [or March 20, 2020 if you happen to find yourself in the EU].
In classic Indiana Jones style, you will be the rogue archaeologist Lemeza Kosugi as you enter the fabled tomb of La Mulana in search of the hidden treasures and, most importantly, the Secret Treasure of Life, that lie within – but what will you actually find? Why, puzzles and traps and deadly Guardians, of course!
You will have to solve two new puzzles on modern platforms as well as the legendary puzzle of Eg-Lana [where you will come to rely on ancient tools as well as modern tools such as Yagoo software and the Glyph Reader – where were those when you needed them back in the day?]
But puzzle-solving is not your only concern as you must deal with the always dangerous array of ancient Guardians protecting La Mulana. For this, you will have your usual trusty cache of guns, shuriken and other weaponry – but add consult the Ankh to really get the Guardians’ goats!
Aside from Lemeza Kosugi, other characters include Lemeza’s daughter, Lumisa, who travels to La Mulana to join her father in his adventure/quest; Professor Shawn, Lemeza’s father and Lumisa’s grandfather, who is the primary reason all the Kosugis are at La Mulana; Elder Xelpud, who runs the La Mulana tourist services and is currently enjoying the good life and the 3,000 year-old woman who looks 24, Mulbruk.
