Commemorative release artwork and mobile wallpapers were shared.

Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series is now available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch, and for PC via Steam.

This compilation includes the first 2 games of the franchise, Klonoa: Door to Phantomile and Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil. These titles are classic platformers, where players control the protagonist Klonoa traversing a myriad of environmental and enemy obstacles.

The compilation contains Easy and Hard difficulties, with the latter only unlocking after the game has been cleared once. Tutorials are optional, so they can be pursued or ignored. 2-player support is also possible via cooperative play. Lastly of note is Stopwatch Mode, which is highly implied to be akin to a Time Attack-esque feature where players race against the clock and complete stages as quickly as possible.
