The original Klonoa: Door to Phantomile was a game released in North America back in 1998. It received great reviews but little attention from the gamers. When the Playstation was first released most titles were strictly 3D with 3D controls. However, Klonoa introduced gamers to a 2.5D perspective which used 3D worlds with classic 2D side-scrolling gameplay which leads the protagonist, Klonoa, through multiple environments on a quest with his friend, Huepow. The creative and brilliant level design, the beautiful soundtrack, and the touching story (you'll need some tissue paper for the end) bind together and create an unforgettable experience that gamers of all ages will enjoy.
This remake is a retelling of the story using the Wii's hardware with updated character designs and graphics. It also has other new features and additions such as a mirror mode, English voice acting (the original had gibberish), and plenty of extra challenges that put your gaming skills to the test once the game is completed. This game will give players who’ve missed out on the original a chance to experience one of the best game series ever created. It also gives us Klonoa veterans a chance to play one of our favorite titles on current console hardware. If you own a Wii you MUST check out this game!
