Bandai Namco (and Tekken) producer Katsuhiro Hamada took to Twitter (or rather TwitLonger) to establish the company's stance on the Klonoa project.

Namely:

  • Contrast to what some might be thinking, Bandai Namco Entertainment DID NOT cancel the movie.
  • BN didn't plan the project, but were asked by "an outside company" (referring to Henshin) to do it.
  • When BN gave permission to Henshin, Henshin immediately announced the project.
  • Normally, for stuff like animation, the involved parties would plan it out before outright announcing anything, so BN was surprised as we were when Henshin announced the Klonoa project out of nowhere.
  • So BN also dealt with 2 years of radio silence and when they were contacted back by Henshin, it was to hear that Klonoa got canned.
  • And no, Bandai Namco doesn't have a clue why the project got shut down either.

TL;DR: It's NOT Bandai Namco's fault that the movie's dead, you guys.

So what happened? If I had to guess, maybe it just got too ambitious for an up-and-coming company like Henshin. Maybe Henshin is kinda going into bankruptcy? (Rather dark, but then why else is everyone being so tight-lipped?)

Financial problems is the perfect excuse, and makes all the sense. And I know Don Bluth had several movies planned before American Tail entered production. If he announced every project, that would be at least 2 cancelled movies in a year.

Jacksepticeye should play it too. Aside from him being another big name, he seems to love old PS games (although mostly Spyro), and he has this wholesome personality that would be great for the game. I feel like if he played it, he would really appreciate it.

Oh my gosh, his voice actually does sound like Jevil. :P

Here's something we missed: Apparently the Klonoa trademark was renewed earlier this month.

That's good. It's a sign that they at least somewhat care about him still.

Don't remember finding this anywhere else in this thread, so here you are.smile

Youtuber ChaseFace gives his personal analysis of the first Klonoa-game. He covers the story (spoiler warnings!) and analyses the game's soundtrack, which is pretty neat.
