Those who fondly remember the magic of 2.5D platformer Klonoa: Door to Phantomile will be delighted to hear that the remake of the game for the Wii is coming along spiffingly. The game, which owes more than is worth mentioning to the new generation of side-scrolling titles such as Little Big Planet and Lost Winds, is slated for release in Japan at the back end of this year.
According to Kotaku: “In its remake journey to the Wii, it’s been surprisingly unfucked with. There’s no waggle gimmick with the only major change being a serious step up in graphical fidelity. It’s a fantastic looking Wii game, looking better than the proper PlayStation 2 sequel, Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil, but dropping that game’s cel-shaded look.”
