Klonoa director Hideo Yoshizawa Tweeted today that he wants fans of the series to show their support to help convince Bandai Namco to release a guidebook called ‘Klonoa Chronicle Collection’.
If made, the guidebook would show off various unrevealed data from the development of the Klonoa series games, collected into one book. Here’s Yoshizawa’s Tweet below:

Originally, Yoshizawa had been revealing details behind the development on the games on Twitter, in order to drum up support for the animated film that was confirmed to be cancelled back in January. With the main reason behind tweeting the details gone, he announced that he was ending the weekly release of info, but stated that thanks to his tweets, he realized that there were a lot of Klonoa fans worldwide still.
Thinking about what could be done with the series heading towards its 25th anniversary as its next milestone, he realized that a lot of the data and information was still available in Bandai Namco’s archives, and as such, hopes to convince Bandai Namco to collect it all into one guidebook.
Update: Yoshizawa has updated with an English version of the Tweet above, which you can respond to instead:
【Greatspread of hope!】
I would like to encourage BandaiNamco to create the publication of the “KLONOA Chronicle Data Collection “, which is a collection of unpublished materials created during the development of the “KLONOA” series.
