Bandai Namco has confirmed that the awkwardly titled Klonoa: Phantasy Reverie Series will release on the 9th July for both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. It'll be available both physically and digitally in Europe, but those in North America will have to settle for digital only. The remastered collection, which includes Klona: Door to Phantomile (PS1) and Klona 2: Lunatea's Veil (PS2), was announced back in February.
It's not just enhanced visuals that set these remasters apart from the originals, either. New difficulty options have been added — easy, normal, and hard — along with co-op. Well, kind of. From what we understand, this isn't a full co-op mode — it's just that a second play can offer support through different button presses. One example in the press release shows a 'support jump' option at the bottom of the screen.
