    Namco Bandai has recently confirmed that their "Wii-make" of the PS1 title 'Klonoa: Door to Phantomille' will be coming to North America simply under the name 'Klonoa'. A release date wasn't announced, but they said it will be included in their 2009 line-up.

    'Klonoa' will feature updated graphics, a boss rush mode, and reverse stages.

    Below are some comparison screens between the PS1 and Wii versions:

    I loved this series on the GBA. [​IMG] Didn't realise it was on any other platforms until last month when I picked up the PS2 one on Amazon, glad to hear they're still making them. (okay so I don't own a Wii, but what the hey)

    Oooh!! I've heard good things about this series, so I may have to pick this up. I never owned a Playstation 1, so giving some of these classics a current gen remake is fine by me [​IMG]

    I loved the Playstation One game! And loved the GBA series too. Glad to see a remake for Wii. I, for one, will be certainly playing the game when it comes out.

    I always knew it would come to NA because I just knew! I can't wait. They are going for Klonoa 2 too in the work and guess what ? The next sequel.. yes, the 3rd. They are reconsider about it in Japain.

    looking forward to it, i played the ps2 Klonoa on a demo and that's about it, it never really sucked me in, will give this a go when it's released though.

    As soon as I saw this, I remembered Upperleft and his avatar [​IMG]

    I love Klonoa as well, here's hoping they don't mess this remake up.

    I hope this doesn't fare as badly as the Nights game.
