Namco Bandai announced today that Klonoa has shipped to North American retailers for the Wii. Originally released for North America in 1998 as Klonoa: Door to Phantomile, Klonoa features lush storybook visuals, timeless 2.5D gameplay, new motion control based attacks as well as new modes and secrets to uncover.
Help Klonoa save Phantomile, a land formed by the dreams of its inhabitants and recently besieged by an unknown evil. Klonoa’s adventure takes him and his best friend Hewpoe through a fantastic journey across multiple kingdoms as they try to stop nightmares from spreading across the land. Along their way they will fight fearsome bosses and figure out challenging puzzles through increasingly difficult stages. Armed with his trusty Wind Bullet, Klonoa is able to inflate and grab enemies to use as tools to overcome environmental hazards and defeat other enemies.
A simple move of the Wii Remote will make Klonoa throw captured enemies to break obstacles, uncover hidden items or defeat other enemies. Klonoa can also use enemies he is holding to perform a double jump which allows him to reach high ledges or jump across large pits. By shaking the Nunchuk, Klonoa can use his whirlwind to slow down approaching enemies. In addition to the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls, Klonoa offers a wide range of control options for any style of play, including Wii Remote only, Classic Controller and the Nintendo GameCube controller.
