It's bad enough that it's on the Wii, but it's also a remake. What a way to be disappointed.. :(
...because Klonoa fits the 360/PS3 demographics like a glove? :/

Oh god... OH GOD!

Okay, is it tough to mod a Wii? I may have to import one instead. I must play this as soon as possible.

There's a software-based hack which can be used to play imports without mod chips.

I can't understand why people would be disappointed over a Door to Phantomile remake. It was mostly overlooked the first time around and deserves another shot.

a. it'll be overlooked this time too. wario land bombed how hard? and that was an original game distantly related to mario

b. who cares about giving the first game another shot -- give me another game

So the Irem PS3 game is... Spelunker HD.
And the unannounced Konami title looks like being the new MGO add-on. Meme Expansion.

Nintendo failed to properly promote it, for one.

Perhaps this will be a reboot of sorts in terms of Namco working on Klonoa related stuff? Besides, the more people that get a shot at playing it, the better.

What I'd love to see is Production IG on board for the animation a la Wario Land Shake It.

Does it call in other Wyverns?
What are Capcom doing? Haven't they learned that you only release info two weeks before release? All this Famitsu coverage is going to hurt MH3 sales

surely you don't expect a quick and dirty remake that's 99% complete at announcement to have a promotional budget...

if this is namco's way of easing themselves back into the klonoa series, then fine -- but i hope they're not pinning the future of the franchise on the performance of a game that even i as a HARDCORE KLONOA FAN won't be supporting

So is the "Sight In" and "Sight Out" thing in SO4 kinda like just getting surprise attacks in before they see you and stuff?

And finally, you can jump! :/

Klonoa Wii a remake of the first game? I guess that'll disappoint the people who have played it, but I never got to play it so I'm interested. Hopefully it'll have some extra levels and whatnot to please the people who have already played it.

Yea, thats what I see. I haven't played the games but I have always been really interested in Klonoa. I simply hope this is their way of tip-toeing back into the series so that they can make a full on new Klonoa game on the Wii (like ToS2 but more "remake" and not a "Spin-off").

Either way, Im looking forward to seeing some direct feeds and seeing what they plan to do with the series after this.

bayoneta looks nice, although I was fooled with DMC4(no fecking mid level saves!)...so Ill be cautious on this

Demon soul looks hot, but not sure about the dev

SO4, nothing interesting, scans too blurry to really tell anything...dont really like the character art here, especially the little icons on screen

MH3, looking very nice considering the platform, good art

Klonoa!

That's almost like making good on their promise of porting the second one. Hell, it's probably better. I never got to play the PSX original. It's pretty rare, and the PS2 rerelease wasn't brought over.
