Klonoa Getting The Wii-Make Treatment

By Spencer . October 1, 2008 . 11:23am

krNamco Bandai isn’t grabbing the PlayStation 2 Klonoa game and slapping motion control on it. This Klonoa remake is based on the PsOne game Klonoa: Door to Phantomile. The original is being upgraded on the Wii with cel-shaded graphics and no waggle. Klonoa: Door to Phantomile uses a classic controller scheme where the remote is held like an NES pad and the 2 button makes Klonoa jump. The other addition is a more elusive. Klonoa: Door to Phantomile supports 1-4 players which probably means motion controlled mini-games. We should find out what they are soon since Klonoa: Door to Phantomile is scheduled to come out in Japan on December 4 for a reasonable price of 4,800 yen ($43). Since the game is coming out soon I hope Namco Bandai surprises us with a playable build next week at Tokyo Game Show.

    Fantastic news, loved both games.

  • I love Klonoa! I own both GBA games and the PS2 title. The PS1 original has long eluded me though. I hope this comes to the US. Otherwise, I’ll have one more reason to hack the region locking on my Wii (with Capcom vs. Tatsunoko being the first reason).

    No forced motion control on a Wii for once? Are my eyes deceiving me? That’s great!
