Namco Hometek has released further information on Klonoa 2 for the Sony PlayStation 2. According to Namco, Klonoa 2 will incorporate new playing features, effects, and camera angles, while the playability and action of the game will remain unaffected. For example, Klonoa will slide down a slope in horizontal view, but as he flies off the tip of the slope, the camera will transition to a more dramatic frontal view. As he lands, the view will switch again to a horizontal perspective. Klonoa 2 will also have interactive elements intertwined with the action elements. Conversations with NPCs will take place with full polygonal visuals and through the use of a dialog box.
According to Namco, the game is approximately 40 percent complete. Its US release date and pricing has not yet been announced.
