Fans of the Klonoa series may be excited to hear that new trademarks have been filed by Bandai Namco. This could mean a new Klonoa game is coming. It has been quite a while since the series saw a new entry. The most recent Klonoa game launched on the Wii back on May 5th, 2009 in North America. It was a remake of the PlayStation title Klonoa: Door to Phantomile. The very first game in the series appeared on the PlayStation back in December of 1997.
In recent years, a few new trademarks have popped up relating to the series. Bandai Namco just filed the latest new Klonoa trademarks in Canada on the 17th of December. These trademarks for the Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series were also filed in Europe three days later. The series would later find its way to Nintendo fans on the Game Boy Advance and Wii consoles.
Earlier on, one was filed in September of 2019 for “Klonoa of the Wind Encore”, as well. The word “Encore” in the title was used to indicate either a remake or a brand new game. It was thought to be connected to the original game in the series, as that title’s Japanese name is Klonoa of the Wind: Klonoa: Door to Phantomile. In North America it was just known as Klonoa: Door to Phantomile. It was thought to be a new port of the original game, though no new Klonoa game came of it. Regardless, the latest Klonoa trademarks may suggest a new game is coming, but time will tell.
While the series started on the PlayStation, it has also graced the Game Boy Advance, with Klonoa: Empire of Dreams (2001) and Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament (2005).
