Original story [Tue 21st Sep, 2021 06:55 BST]: Back in September 2019, phrase unfold about the potential for the basic Namco character Klonoa returning, after Bandai Namco filed some emblems in Japan.
Fast ahead to September 2021, and the Japanese firm has now gone and filed some new emblems for “Waffuu Encore” and “1&2 Encore” in the identical location. The phrase “encore” is what Bamco has been subtitling remasters of video games (e.g. Katamari Damacy ‘Encore’ as an alternative of ‘Reroll’ ) in Japan, in latest occasions.
And the phrase “Waffuu” – as famous by Gematsu, is the catch phrase of the collection’ floppy-eared protagonist. When information about Klonoa’s attainable return surfaced in 2019, it was the identical time as a trademark appeared for Mr. Driller: DrillLand (Mr. Driller ‘Encore’ in Japan).
Klonoa started life in 1997 on the PlayStation and ultimately confirmed up on a few of Nintendo’s platforms in the course of the GBA and Wii technology. Would you prefer to see this character make a return? Leave a remark under.
