    Sadly, I won't be able to experience this game.

    Got a good offer on my Wii and will be selling it this week.

    I'm sure you can pick up a Wii in a few years and then have a huge stack of backlogged games to enjoy.

    I just finished the original. It's still awesome after all these years.

    I can't wait to see a lot of the levels with new graphics. "The Stopped Gear" and the last two levels are probably the ones I'm looking forward to seeing the most.

    Hopefully it will still be easy to find in a few years if you ever decide to pick up another Wii.

    GameStop has the game for $30 instead of the regular $40. I'm glad I waited to pre-order.

    Amazon has dropped the price to $30 as well, which is good news for the people who don't have a GameStop near them/don't like dealing with them etc.

    Wow.. I wonder if $30 is the new MSRP for it. I'm starting to worry that people might mistake it for a budget title, though.

    Namco has an English website up for the game now, but it's not really worth linking. The "experience" trailer that they have up reminds me a little too much of the NiGHTS 2 trailer. D:

    Let me tell you about Demon's Souls....
    I’ll tell you what happens in Demon’s Souls when you die. You come back as a ghost with your health capped at half. And when you keep on dying, the alignment of the world turns black and the enemies get harder. That’s right, when you fail in this game, it gets harder. Why? Because fuck you is why.

    I haven't played very much at all but the "Phantomile" option for language settings changes the sound effects as well as the voices and if the title screen is proper indication that is a very good thing.

    I'm still waiting on mine to come in the mail. Does the Phantomile option even change Klonoa's new deep voice back to his original PS1 voice?

    Also, is it true that the game comes with a coupon for a free taco from Wahoo's Fish Tacos?

    The only reason I can think of is because Klonoa says "Wahoo!" when he double jumps. That doesn't make it any less strange, though.

    It changes it back to the original gibberish, yeah. Which is a godsend, since Klonoa is viced by the same guy who does Chip from Sonic Unleashed in the dub.

    I would be hilarious if, in the future, Wiis will become hard to find because, due to their small size, people easily misplace them.

    I should probably get around to finishing the sequel. I enjoyed it, but I stopped about halfway 'cause I got tired of the game stopping so often for story (for similar reasons, I never finished the Wii Nights).

    I enjoyed the first game, but I'm not entirely sold on a remake. From the sound of it, it's mostly visual changes and not much in the way of new gameplay so I'll probably wait and pick it up a used copy down the road.

    Giant Bomb did a Quick Look video of Klonoa, and it looks pretty good.

    I never really got into the series myself, but my girlfriend loves it. I bought her the original Door to Phantomile for the PS1 for way too much as a birthday present once.

    I saw this at gamestop the other day but I went for the sole purpose of getting Gears of War 2 to play with an old roommate from college over live. Then my wife convinced me to get her the original pikmin, not the new control one cause she tried the new controls in store and didn't like them.

    I will grab this before it becomes extinct, because I have played and loved every Klonoa game. The GBA one was awesome.

    Which GBA one? There were two you know. (Well, in the US, there were many more across the ocean.) (I still need to pick up the second one myself)

    And I picked up Pikmin last Friday. The new controls make the game alot better than the original release, which is difficult because the game was already pretty excellent.

    But they added so many little things outside of the controls (Being about to start on any day of your save file being the best) that make it worth picking up.

    I almost got Chibi Robo when GS had their B2G1F sale, but I'm gonna wait for the Wii release simply for the 16:9 support.

    Does anyone know what the graphic filter option is?

    This is the description given in the manual.

    "A graphic filter can be turned on to increase the sharpness of the picture quality. This feature only works with component connections. Defaults to off."

    They added mirror versions of most of the levels, but i thought they were also adding in new puzzle levels in addition to those ala Bionic commando rearmed. Mainly do to this article: http://kotaku.com/5236365/klonoa-wii+make-challenge-preview-yep-its-challenging (yes it's kotaku, but still...) and the fact that the back of the box makes specific reference to "exclusive bonus stages" in addition to "14 adventure filled levels".

    Edit: I'm still trying to figure out if there actually are any new challenge levels, ill post if i manage to find anything in game.
