Klonoa animated film in the works - Operationgamer17 - 10-28-2016

Last night, an animated film based on Bandai Namco's Klonoa series was announced. It is being made by Henshin which comprises of employees from ShiftyLook, who handled the Klonoa webcomic, Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol, back in 2012-2014.

This got me interested!


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - The Primordial Clok-Roo - 10-28-2016

I saw a video about this last night.
While I've not been that invested in Klonoa, I have wanted to try the series at some point, so I am interested to see how this goes.

Hopefully it comes to the west so we can see it ourselves - unlike the Animal Crossing movie which had to be fan dubbed. (Good job they did on that, though)


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - Vokadae - 10-28-2016

I'd totally recommend you try the Klonoa games Big Grin But I happen to be a slight fanatic from another forum xD
I'm so happy that Klonoa is getting an animation


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - Kairi_in_Skylands - 10-28-2016

I just want to watch the movie. I have been trying to get into Klonoa for a while, but i don´t get the mecanics of the game though.

Aren't you like a super huge Klonoa fan?


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - CrystalBlazier - 10-28-2016

I'm a fan, yes.


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - Legends of Skylands - 10-29-2016

Nice, only game I played is Lunatea's Veil but I have great memories of that game.


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - Operationgamer17 - 02-10-2017

Henshin has teased we MAY be seeing characters from places outside of Phantomile in the film.

I got confirmation that new info on the Klonoa movie is coming this year.

Script is described as being very "Klonoa" and fresh at the same time.

RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - PhotonTH - 07-15-2017

Oh yes I forgot this was a thing that was happening. That's cool. Full theatrical release or what?


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - The Primordial Clok-Roo - 07-15-2017

Wow... I've never seen a more biased poll in my life!
Still, the fact that they say it's going to be Klonoa and "fresh" at the same time worries me...

The gremlins of the Ratchet and Clank film are resurfacing.

A reboot? But... nothing could top the ending of Klonoa 1. D:

Rob previously stated on Kitsu that the movie's story "wouldn't be a rehash" for those wondering.

As part of a 20th anniversary celebration, Henshin twitter account posted what was confirmed to be one of the first sketches of Klonoa in his movie outfit.

RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - The Primordial Clok-Roo - 12-12-2017

That's Klonoa, alright.
That even got the details right. Anyone else notice the Pac-Man emblem on his hat?


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - CrystalBlazier - 12-12-2017

He always had that. X3


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - Kairi_in_Skylands - 12-12-2017

Klonoa needs a new game.

I knew that. I was asking if anyone else had noticed that the detail had be retained.

Crash got a new game; Samus got a new game; Sir Daniel Fortesque is getting a new game; Busby somehow got a new game... did I miss anyone?

Yeah, Klonoa needs a new game. And at the rate these comebacks are looking, it's almost a guarantee.
(If it does happen, that would REALLY cause the retro-Spyro fans to snap!)


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - Operationgamer17 - 07-28-2018

Henshin confirms it’ll be giving lots of updates to their projects in Q4 2018. Looks like we have an ETA on news. https://www.twitter.com/HENSHlN/status/1021979043015614464


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - Operationgamer17 - 12-31-2018

Awwwwww. This wasn’t the kind of news on the project I wanted in the new year.

RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - Kairi_in_Skylands - 12-31-2018

It got canned? Aww.

Welp, I still need to go play the games.

Also Namco bring back Klonoa.


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - The Primordial Clok-Roo - 12-31-2018

First thing Klonoa gets in years...
Cancelled.

"This is why we can't have nice things."

I strongly disagree with this statement...


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - DarklanderTails - 01-01-2019

Is that message actually linked to the Klonoa movie or something? Because the writer for it hasn't said anything about it since September.


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - DarklanderTails - 01-05-2019

https://twitter.com/ariga_megamix/status/1081353923137421312 Confirmed by another source now. Klonoa film is indeed cancelled.


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - CrystalBlazier - 01-10-2019

Aww maaaan.... :<


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - The Primordial Clok-Roo - 01-10-2019

Few days late on the uptake, Crystal...

Same thing happened with the planned Sly Cooper movie, which from what I heard was scratched and turned into a cartoon...
Which also got scratched if the lack of information on it is anything to go by.

That said, it was probably for the better. Video game movies have a history of being... well, bad.


RE: Klonoa animated film in the works - CrystalBlazier - 01-10-2019

*cough* Ratchet and Clank.
