Either someone out there
has been reading Born for Wii, or we have impeccable taste
. Still, if this keeps up, it's going to be hard for us to come up with game selections that make you go "Man, why didn't I
think of that?" This week is a case in point: Namco went and ruined the surprise by announcing a remake
of Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
for the Wii. Really, though, that just makes this week's choice all the more likely to see the light of day.
The Klonoa series is often overlooked when gamers list off their favorite platformers. A certain plumber
seems to snag the spotlight all too often. Still, Klonoa has a considerable cult following, and for good reason: the gameplay manages to be incredibly straightforward and fun at the same time. Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil
is one of the most fun, lighthearted games of last generation, and its atmosphere and design make it a perfect match for the Wii.
Every week, Born for Wii digs into gaming's sordid past to unearth a new treasure fit for revival on the Nintendo Wii. Be sure to check out last week's entry in the series, Lemmings, and for more great titles that deserve your attention, take a look at Virtually Overlooked.
