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)

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

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.

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

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.

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

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!)

It got canned? Aww.

Welp, I still need to go play the games.

Also Namco bring back Klonoa.

First thing Klonoa gets in years...
Cancelled.

I strongly disagree with this statement...

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

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.
