Informazioni sul titolo

Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil is a platform game developed and published by Namco for the PlayStation 2 in 2001. It is the direct sequel to Klonoa: Door to Phantomile (1997) for the PlayStation. The game puts players in the role of Klonoa, who, along with a new cast of friends, has stumbled into another adventure, this time to save the world of Lunatea and help unveil the mysteries of the enchanted world. The game features gameplay inspired by the original Klonoa with 2D side-scrolling in a 3D-rendered environment. Klonoa’s equipped weapon is a crystal ring which contains the life of Lolo inside helping him. The game takes place in the dream world of Lunatea. It is composed of four kingdoms. The Kingdom of Tranquility, La-Lakoosha, is a peaceful kingdom that lies at the north of Lunatea and where the High Priestess resides. The Kingdom of Joy, Joilant, is a kingdom to the south of Lunatea and resembles an amusement park. The Kingdom of Discord, Volk, which lies to the west, resembles several metalworking factories and its people wage a neverending war. The Kingdom of Indecision, Mira-Mira, is secluded and snowbound all year long. Each kingdom contains a bell housing its element. Story The story begins with Klonoa, in what appears to be a dream, being asked for help by an unknown silhouette. Klonoa suddenly starts falling into water. A flying ship, carrying sky pirates Leorina and Tat, appears above him. Before they can take his ring, the priestess-in-training Lolo and her sidekick Popka appears and they fly off, not wanting to risk losing the ring. Klonoa wakes up and is greeted by Lolo and Popka, they mention that he is in Lunatea and that they should see The High Priestess. Along the way to meet the priestess, Klonoa uses the ring, with Lolo in it, to ring a giant bell. After talking with the High Priestess, Lolo is granted the title of a priestess. Klonoa learns he must get the elements from the giant bells spread throughout Lunatea, but Leorina and Tat manage to get in his way, and take them. After catching up with her, Leorina explains that with the power she has, she’ll make everyone realize sorrow, but instead, she gets cursed by it, turning into a giant silver bird-like creature. After Klonoa saves her, she decides to help him. With the power of the elements, Klonoa opens the gate to the Kingdom of Sorrow. It is revealed that the King of Sorrow is the one who summoned Klonoa to Lunatea, in the end however, the king decides to use Klonoa as a vessel for the pain he suffered in isolation but gets defeated in battle. Klonoa promises the King of Sorrow that the world would remember sorrow. Klonoa rings the bell, and the king turns to light and fades away. Sometime later, Leorina and Tat decide to restore the Kingdom of Sorrow, and Klonoa decides to return to his home world, saying his goodbyes to Lolo. In the credits, it is revealed that the inhabitants of the four Kingdoms in Lunatea are now moving about freely to the other Kingdoms, with most of them assisting Leorina and Tat in rebuilding the Kingdom of Sorrow while others are exploring the other four Kingdoms with curiosity and wonder. Critics commended its simple but challenging gameplay, and listed it among the best platform games of 2001. A compilation featuring remasters of the game and the Wii remake of Door to Phantomile is planned for a 2022 release as Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series for multiple platforms
