Klonoa 2 announced.
When the word Namco comes to mind we all think Ridge Racer or Tekken, right? What few of us may think is Klonoa which is arguably one of the best side-scrolling adventures since Mario Bros. 3. Klonoa: The Tale of Phantomile was one hell of an exciting game with vibrant visuals, excellent gameplay and a tight soundtrack round off Klonoa. Now Namco has had said that the sequel to Klonoa is already in the works for the PS2 and from the two screens we've seen, the game may be a side-scroller, ALL REJOICE! Namco may be hinting that side-scrollers will never lose to their fashion. Although 3D elements are also key, but still I'm happy that some 2D exploration will be intact. Lunatia is the new world meant to be explored by Klonoa, who's friends will be back for his second adventure as well. March 2001 is the date set for the Japanese release and I am anticipating this one with all eagerness.
