Bandai Namco's Klonoa Games Have Animated Film in Development

Entertainment industry news magazine Variety reported on Thursday that an animated film adaptation of Bandai Namco Entertainment’s Klonoa video game series is in development. United States-based production company Henshin is working on the film, which was announced at TIFFCOM. Henshin founder Rob Pereyda is the producer, while Hitoshi Ariga (Mega Man Megamix, Mega Man Gigamix, Big O manga, Pokémon illustrations) is penning the script, co-producing, and designing the characters.

Namco launched the first Klonoa game, Klonoa: Door to Phantomile, for the PlayStation in 1997. The second numbered sequel, Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil, shipped for the PlayStation 2 in 2001. Two handheld games, Kaze no Klonoa: Moonlight Museum and Klonoa: Empire of Dreams, also shipped for the WonderSwan and Game Boy Advance, respectively. Namco released Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament on PlayStation and Klonoa Heroes: Densetsu no Star Medal on Game Boy Advance in 2002. A remake of the first game shipped for the Wii U in 2008.

The games center on the titular Klonoa, a kind and good-hearted “Dream Traveler” who protects the dreams of various worlds.

Pereyda was previously the producer and editor-in-chief of ShiftyLook, a subsidiary of Bandai Namco Entertainment (then known as Namco Bandai Games) that focused on web comics, cartoons, and games based on classic Namco franchises. It launched animated series based on games such as Wonder Momo, Bravoman, and Mappy. Pereyda was also previously the vice president of licensing at Crunchyroll before stepping down in 2011.

Ariga previously serialized a Klonoa web comic titled Klonoa: Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol for ShiftyLook from 2012 to 2014.

How old am I in this game?

Better question: How old is everyone else?

Because a disturbing thought I had, what with the inevitable Keyblade War in the future, is that how likely is it that those who participated in it were barely even adults?

Dark stuff, man, dark stuff…

Only in the Kingdom Hearts series, where it’s totally a children’s game! :^)

anonymous asked:

I want to cut off that last anon's nipples and force-feed them to them. Klonoa is the best series ever and don't let anyone tell you any different.

DUDE CHILL.

Bro was just giving his opinion and didn’t offend anyone.


IT’S OK TO GIVE YOUR OPINION.
I REPEAT.
IT’S OK TO GIVE YOUR OPINION.


Only when that ‘opinion’ involves disregarding REAL PEOPLE then we can talk about chopping off their nipples, but this ain’t the case.

What we know about the Klonoa film so far:
  • “Feature-length anime”
  • Produced by Rob Pereyda (Producer of Shiftylook as well as it’s related comics/media.)
  • Co-producer/Writer/Character designer is Hitoshi Ariga (Artist for Klonoa: Dream Traveler of Noctis Sol, designer of numerous Pokemon creatures, and the Big O/Mega Man Megamix mangas.)
  • Executive Producer is Hideo Yoshizawa (Director/Creator of the Klonoa series and Ninja Gaiden.)
  • Will be spoken in the fictional Klonoa language (Phantomilian) with subtitles in English/Japanese (and perhaps other languages as it’s localized?)

More news is yet to be announced… we’ll keep our long ears peeled of course!

With the same tweet that Hideo Yoshizawa showed off the promotional Klonoa 2 boomerang he also made mention that, while he has no more Klonoa merch in his personal collection to show off, next he will discuss his time spent developing the Klonoa games. While the tweet is a tiny bit little vague, he probably means the videogames and not the upcoming film. We’ll stay tuned definitely!

お宝グッズシリーズ! クロノアのブーメラン。 確かワールドホビーフェアか何かのイベントで配られたものだったと思うんだけど。折るのがもったいなくて一度も飛ばしたことありません! これにてクロノアのグッズもおしまいです。 次回からはクロノア開発秘話をお届けする予定です。お楽しみに。

Rough translation: Treasures goods series! Klonoa boomerang. I guess it was given out at the World Hobby Fair events or something. It’d be a waste to fold it and it’s never been thrown! There are no more Klonoa goods to show now. Next time, I am planning to deliver Klonoa development privacy stories. Look forward to it.
