After a decade Klonoa hasn’t changed much. Namco Bandai’s Wii-make feels just like the PlayStation version with better graphics. This time around the world is vivacious, full of color, and Klonoa isn’t a sprite – now he’s a talking 3D model.

After a media blitz and much fan outcry Klonoa 2000 was scrapped and classic Klonoa lives on. But, why did the development team feel the need to make a new Klonoa in the first place? I brought the […]

Klonoa Character Design Being Checked For North American Wii-make

By Spencer . October 30, 2008 . 11:10am

Technically we have Klonoa: Door to Phantomile, but after seeing the gorgeous Wii remake I don’t want to go back to it. Since Namco Bandai already has a completed build of Klonoa it’s easy to imagine the Wii version is getting localized. A survey sent out by Namco Bandai makes it seem even more likely. […]

Klonoa Getting The Wii-Make Treatment

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

Namco 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 […]
