IGN writes: "2.5D lives -- and not just in a downloadable format! The Wii remake of one of the genre's granddaddies hit the Japanese Wii today. We picked up a copy of Namco Bandai's Klonoa: Door to Phantomile and haven't been able to stop playing.
Klonoa first originated on the PlayStation way back in December 1997 (the 11th will be the game's 11th anniversary). That was about the time everyone was going gaga over the new gameplay opportunities of 3D, so the once painfully abundant 2D platforming genre was all but dead. "
