A Feature-Length Animated Film, Featuring A Forgotten PlayStation Character!

You might not be even familiar with this character, but some people did not leave the past behind – in fact, a team is working on bringing him back in a different way.

Klonoa‘s name might not mean much nowadays, but 1998’s Door to Phantomile on PS1 (in Japan, it launched in late ’97), as well as Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil on PS2 in 2001 were both successful. He also showed up on the Bandai Wonderswan, the Game Boy Advance, as well as one more time on the PlayStation in a volleyball title.

The Namco-owned character will be brought to… unannounced locations (cinemas? Blu-ray? streaming services?) by San Francisco-based Henshin. We don’t know much else about the project outside the producer and the writer/designer. They are Rob Pereyda, and Hitoshi Ariga, respectively. Pereyda helped Namco with web animations for Mappy, Wonder Momo, or Bravoman, while Ariga was involved in Pokémon X/Y, as well as being the leading force behind the Klonoa webcomic.

The first signs are promising.
