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 ES...

Good thing that's something Klonoa fans like most about the series, right? Head past the break to check out 5 more videos...

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 b...

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 under...

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 sha...
