The new Klonoa brand spotted
A registered trademark for the Klonoa Phantasy Reverie series has been spotted in the UK.
A trademark for “Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series” has been spotted in the UK, sparking rumors of a new remastered collection.
It’s been over 10 years since we’ve seen Klonoa, with its last game released in 2008 for the Wii and being a remake of the first game in the series. It’s been pretty quiet since then, but it looks like it could make a comeback soon if new brands are to be believed.
As reported by VGC, a trademark for Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series has been registered and appears on the UK Intellectual Property Office. The trademark was reportedly registered on December 17 and is listed as belonging to Bandai Namco Japan in the list. The list categorized it in video games, which should take away any concerns whether it’s some sort of TV show or merchandise.
Interestingly, a trademark filed in September appears to be related to Klonoa. The trademark has been registered in Japan for “Waffuu Encore” and “1 & 2 Encore”. Still is what Bandai Namco has titled their remaster in Japan for the past few years and Waffuu is Klonoa’s tagline, which leads a lot to reasonably tie the two together.
This isn’t the first time something related to a Klonoa remaster has been spotted in recent years. Since 2019, trademarks have been registered by Bandai Namco for Klonoa Encore, Mr Driller Encore, Splatterhouse Encore and Genpei Touma Den Encore. Nothing came out of those brands back then, but with the subsequent Klonoa trademark filings that took place in the years that followed, it seems likely we’ll see remasters soon.
As for the games in the collection, it appears to be Door to Phantomile and Lunatea’s Veil, the first and second game respectively. It’s unclear whether the first game will be the original PlayStation version or the Wii remake. , but the use of “1 & 2 Encore” makes it clear which games are included.
