Sounds like an interesting idea, but it would probably be best if it stayed as a fan-game rather than an official game made by Namco in my opinion.
I think it could work with the Oculus Rift with either a 360 controller or with the accessories designed for the system like that walking thing and those hand controllers (I stopped caring about the Oculus months ago so I don't know what their names are). I just worry that many people could get motion sickness from the game/system.
If anything, I think Klonoa should come back as a 3D platformer that would be similar to the Mario Galaxy games without the anti-gravity gimmicks.
Good point but we'd need to use the virtual reality controllers for Oculus Rift unless it reaches ps4 to make it like the Wind Ring maybe make one specially made for it maybe the shape of a circle representing the Wind Ring. The idea of a virtual controller can actually work but it will need to be a blue tooth controller. A fan made game has happened with the 3DS Majoras Mask by getting rights to doing it from the proper channels by getting permission from Nintendo. If you contacted the president of Namco and asked for permission if you had the right amount of funding for it it's quite possible.
It doesn't kill to ask someone but the rights would have to belong to Namco since they are the original owners of Klonoa and a fanbased soundtrack would be required. Maybe a remix of the other game soundtracks would be needed such as Baladium's Drive and other familiar tracks. Sonic the Hedgehog also did this with their games so it would be very appropriate to the fan game. The other missing peace is noise cancelling headsets to be focused on a true virtual reality environment.
Sound Cancelling or Isolation is the closest you can get out of VR especially this is how SAO worked sorry for off topic it was just an example of where VR came from well firstly it came from dot hack or virtual boy. Been keeping an eye on the Virtual Reality industry for quite some time and they lack sound cancelling or fear it for some reason. A full explorable environment would also need to be made unless you want another virtual boy. Being available for HD would also be a problem we don't want to go back to old school pixels.
A storyline would also need to be worked on and it would have to follow after the last Klonoa game and we should avoid the pubic voice acting since it kills the purpose of a game in games you don't age so it's quite obvious
we need to outlaw people putting age in a damn game so keep reality out of a game that's how games die quickly or another words go extinct
I swear if I see one more game involving realistic stuff I'm just gonna stop playing games all together.
I'm gonna be honest the last remake of Klonoa Door to Phantomile was AWFUL when I discovered they completely KILLED Klonoas voice. It's a game pubic voices shouldn't be involved in video games who ever thought of this needs to stay away from game development or suggestions.
Any way if we don't do a Klonoa Door to Phantomile voice acting screw up it would be fine otherwise if a Japanese voice and english subtitles is available I'm using that. We just gotta find people who WANT to make a Klonoa 3 I wouldn't do it though because I don't have the money goodluck to who wants to.
