It's been ten years since this game first hit the shelves, back in the fall of 1998. Now, thanks to the Nintendo wii, it's back, and it's just as amazing as I remember it!
The updated graphics are fantastic, and really show off what the wii is capable of. Everything looks lush and lively, which is exactly what you want.
If you're new to Klonoa, you'll find a great little game which is suitable for gamers of all ages. It's fun and easy enough for kids to get to grips with (especially now as you have more health in this version) but it still holds a challenge in the later level, especially when aiming for 100% completion and all the time trials.
The only minor complaint I have is that the game can be finished in four to five hours on first playthrough, but for the price this really isn't an issue, and there is some replay value in the time trails and bonus levels to unlock some of the extra goodies (mirrored levels and extra outfits).
Oh and remember, if the voice acting gets irritating, there's always the option to turn it back to the original gibberish speak!
