Update: It would seem that Bandai Namco is planning to update several other classic titles, not just Klonoa.
Original Story (Tue 17th Sep, 2019 03:30 BST): Long-time Klonoa fans will be pleased to hear a new trademark – filed by Bandai Namco – has been discovered for Klonoa of the Wind Encore.
The Klonoa Archives on Twitter believes the trademark is likely referring to a port or a new entry of an unspecified Klonoa title, while GoNintendo further explains how the trademark has ties to the original game, known as Klonoa: Door to Phantomile in the United States.
A remake of the original 2.5D platform game was previously released on the Wii in 2009, featuring updated visuals and a remixed soundtrack.
This lesser-known floppy-eared protagonist started out life in 1997 on the PlayStation. Since 2014, there have been rumours of a new game and in 2016 an animated film based on the character was announced and then cancelled at the beginning of this year.
