Longtime PlayStation fans will remember that the PS1 was host to some fantastic platformers. Crash Bandicoot is a household name, but less well known is the equally-epic Klonoa: Door to Phantomile.

Bandai Namco has released a trailer that shows off the opening cutscene of its upcoming Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series, a remaster of the original game, which will be bundled alongside its sequel, Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil, and is set to launch on 8th July.

Released in 1997, Klonoa: Door to Phantomile was Namco's answer to Crash, a character platformer in which players controlled the titular Klonoa, an incredibly 90s looking anthropomorphic animal, on his adventures in Phantomile, a land fuelled by the dreams people have at night. Along with his ring-spirit friend, Huepow, it is up to Klonoa to save Phantomile from the evil spirit Ghadius, a dark spirit intent on turning Phantomile into a literal world of nightmares. It's pretty heavy stuff.

Besides the enhanced visuals, new difficulty modes will be added, in addition to some sort of co-op mode, although the particulars of that aspect have yet to be revealed. Will you be taking this trip down memory lane? Reminisce with us in the comments section below.
