"Klonoa of the Wind Encore" trademark surfaces

Is Klonoa coming back?

Klonoa, which has been loved by those who played, but never really found a big audience, may be giving things another go. Bandai Namco has filed a trademark for Klonoa of the Wind Encore, but no details are tied to the trademark. Adding 'Encore' to the name falls in line with previous Bandai Namco titles. The problem is, Encore has been added to Bandai Namco game names to indicate both a remake and a new title.

Taking things a step further, the 'of the Wind' name ties in to the original Klonoa as well. Here in the states, the game was known as Klonoa: Door to Phantomile. Over in Japan, the full name was Klonoa of the Wind: Klonoa: Door to Phantomile. Seeing as how the original Klonoa was already remade for Wii, it would be strange to see yet another remake of the same game. Hopefully this a brand-new game with a straightforward Klonoa name, but only time will tell.

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!

OH MY GOD YES!!! My favorite non-Nintendo mascot game character EVER.

Is it wrong that I want him to be in Smash.

A friend and I were discussing just this the other day. I said it was impossible since Namco has basically binned him... but if they are in fact going to do another reboot, then maybe we have a chance here.

Whatever happened to the Klonoa movie?

It got cancelled. The production was too expensive to begin with.

Why the hell bandai namco can't bring back this series?

Klonoa is honestly in worse date compared to Mega Man who at least got a legacy collection before a new game showed up.

I would be so, so happy if this was a new game... but it most likely is a re-release. But hey, I wouldn't mind playing through all the Klonoa games for the 200th time. Smile
