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. But, the survey Jeff sent (thanks!!) has some strange questions about Klonoa himself.
First the survey asks which version of Klonoa do you like more classic Klonoa or hatless Klonoa. OK… let’s go with the new Klonoa design.
Lack of hat? 1.
Is this Klonoa is supposed to be totally hardcore and therefore imply a more challenging game?
The survey actually takes you through both characters so it doesn’t matter which Klonoa you pick first. I’m not sure if I like the “new” Klonoa, but it’s a good sign that Namco Bandai is inquiring about Klonoa. Whether you like the revised Klonoa or not at least Namco Bandai is still interested in keeping the Klonoa franchise alive in North America. Maybe the “new” Klonoa will get his own hat shopping spin-off.
