‘Klonoa’ To Get Anime Adaptation; ‘Pokemon’ Character Designer Attached

Klonoa, the platforming video game series with installments on Playstation 1 & 2, Game Boy Advance and Wii, will be getting its own anime adaptation, according to a report by Kotaku.

Anime production company Henshin, Inc. will produce an animated feature based on Klonoa: Door to Phantomile, the first game in the series that was released in 1997.

Henshin, Inc. founder, Rob Pereyda, said this in an email to Kotaku:

“Klonoa is a late 90s video game icon, representing that special sense of hope and adventure we all collectively once had. We are honored to be entrusted by Bandai Namco with this franchise, and will work hard to do justice to the characters.”

Pokemon character designer Hitoshi Ariga is set to co-produce and write the upcoming project, as well as handle character design.

Further details and release date are unknown as of this writing.
