Let's face it, if you're a Wii U owner you're well aware Mario Kart 8 is out tomorrow. It's the series' first HD entry, when you register it online you get a code for a free game, and you know this. But, maybe for some foul reason you're less Mario Kart 8 and more Mario Kart Hate. Luckily for you...

When we saw this news, our giant wing-like ears flapped in excitement and we exclaimed in a nonsensical language. Klonoa: Door to Phantomile, one of the PlayStation's best (and only) side-scrollers, is going to be released on PSN via PSOne Classics. That is, of course, assuming that's why the ...

Critical darling (and Wiimake) Klonoa has seen a UK price cut, prior to even being released to stores. The upcoming Nintendo Wii title is scheduled to release on May 22, but multiple retailers have cut the RRP nearly in half. Play.com UK is offering the PS1 remake for £14.99 while Amazon.co....

Update: Sorry, folks, but the giveaway has ended. Keep an eye on your email inbox and thanks for playing! Namco Bandai sent us a new copy of Klonoa for the Wii, along with the titular character's hat (Twitterholics, you may have already seen an image of the hat here). If you want to get in on this...

Namco Bandai sent us a slew of new trailers for its upcoming game, Klonoa. The content within each video is pretty much the same: platforming, platforming, and more platforming. Good thing that's something Klonoa fans like most about the series, right? Head past the break to check out 5 more videos ...

Eurogamer reports that Namco's Klonoa remake will be making its way to Europe, likely putting a smile on a face or two along the way. Klonoa is an updated version of the original PSOne game, Klonoa: Door to Phantomile, and features a new control scheme that takes advantage of the capabilities of t...

Namco Bandai shot over some new videos for Klonoa and we must say they look rather good. Even though it's a remake of a PSOne game, we're still excited for this one. It looks like the platforming is going to be as fun as ever, and the updated graphics make it much easier on the eyes. Head past the ...

And it's doing away with that pesky subtitle Door to Phantomile. Yes, Namco's remake of the classic PSOne game will release in North America, as reported earlier, and will simply be titled Klonoa. Should be easy enough to remember. All we have to go on right now is a 2009 release window. Namco has...

Whoa. Click to embiggen. It's been over a decade since Klonoa: Door to Phantomile came out on the original PlayStation, received heaps of critical praise, and completely tanked at retail. The Wii remake will have its own chance at being unsuccessful this year when it's released by Namco Bandai unde...

Yay! The latest Nintendo Power has confirmed a North American localization of Klonoa: Door to Phantomile (under the abbreviated moniker of Klonoa), and the good news doesn't stop there. For example: The magazine states that Namco Bandai has settled on keeping the more chibi of its two designs...

Klonoa: Door to Phantomile has been a big blip on our radar ever since it was revealed. To see the changes that Namco made to the original game, it almost looks like something completely brand new. But, thankfully, the gameplay is relatively unchanged, allowing the new Wii port to retain the spirit...

Klonoa: Door to Phantomile comes out in Japan next week, but Namco Bandai is only circulating the first videos now. We have no idea why anybody would want to keep this luscious title from us. Watching Klonoa and Huepow bounce around these vivid, beautiful, omigawdcolorssopretty levels, we can't sh...

Namco Bandai is determined to spoil Klonoa: Door to Phantomile's "Extra Vision", the "Balue's Tower" level in which Klonoa is tasked with picking up all 150 gems to unlock more special content. Now Dengeki is posting those screens along with the reverse stage and alternate costume information foun...

Famitsu has revealed some of the extra hidden content in the gorgeous Wii remake of Klonoa: Door to Phantomile. The extra "vision," an especially difficult level set in Balue's Tower, was present in the PlayStation game and remains unlockable in this version. In addition, Klonoa will be able to ea...

It might just be because we can't help but mentally compare it to the PlayStation game, but we think the Wii remake of Klonoa: Door to Phantomile looks really impressive. The colors are super-bright, the depth-of-field effect is cool, and the lighting is extremely well done. The simple character d...

We didn't really have much doubt that the core gameplay in Klonoa: Door to Phantomile would be preserved in the Wii remake, especially after seeing how closely the environments matched. But it's nice to see this gameplay video from TGS that proves that it's the same Klonoa as ever. Two more video...

Either someone out there has been reading Born for Wii, or we have impeccable taste. Still, if this keeps up, it's going to be hard for us to come up with game selections that make you go "Man, why didn't I think of that?" This week is a case in point: Namco went and ruined the surprise by announcin...

Along with a batch of screens of the remake of Klonoa: Door to Phantomile, Famitsu has posted a perfect comparison shot between the new Wii version and the PlayStation version. These two screens put next to each other will disabuse you of the nostalgic memory of Klonoa on the PlayStation looking n...

Click for full-sized image Nintendo announced a lot of games last night at their Japanese conference. Many of them, like Punch-Out!! here, were brand new. Some, like Supan Smasher and Cosmic Walker, we still don't know anything about. But we've got screenshots. So many screenshots. After the...
