As reported on Neogaf and a couple of other sites now, the latest issue of Nintendo Power brings news that the MSX-style platformer is headed for the WiiWare very soon. Nigoro themselves posted up a countdown timer on their site just yesterday, so this piece of information is pretty much confirmed and we will hear more about the changes that the new port will bring in three days' time.

The Neogaf poster also comments that La-Mulana's graphics have been updated to 16-bit, and the original MSX roms would probably be replaced with classic Nintendo titles instead. (old gameplay videos)

[UPDATE: Nicalis had posted up a press release on their blog today, confirming the collaboration between them and the Nigoro team on an upcoming WiiWare game, scheduled for release in Winter 2009.]
