Should the Klonoa games be played in an order?
« on: February 24, 2016, 11:04:19 AM »
Obviously Klonoa: Door to Phantomile > Klonoa 2: Lunatea's veil

But what about the others?

Some games have characters from Klonoa: Door to Phantomile and Klonoa 2: Lunatea's veil in the same game.

Klonoa: Door to Phantomile > Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil
or
Klonoa (Wii) > Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil

You can play other games (spinoffs) in any order you want.

(Also moved this to Klonoa Chatbox, since this is Klonoa-related topic.)

As far as the main games, no. You can play both without any order.

I do recommend that people play Empire of Dreams then Dream Champ Tournament afterwards, seeing that DCT happened immediately after EoD.

I think you'd get the best experience playing DtP -> LV and EoD -> DCT, but like everyone else said, there's not much continuity between them. You won't be confused if you play them in any order, I don't think.

There's also Moonlight Museum, which is a prequel, but entirely in Japanese so the story is lost on people who don't speak the language.

other than that, release date is pretty accurate

Moonlight Museum > Door to Phantomile > Lunatea's Veil > Empire of Dreams > Dream Champ > Beach Volley > Heroes > Namco X Capcom

Some games have characters from Klonoa: Door to Phantomile and Klonoa 2: Lunatea's veil in the same game.

My personal order would be something along the lines of:

1. Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
2. Klonoa: Empire of Dreams
3. Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil
4. Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament
5. Kaze no Klonoa Heroes: Densetsu no Star Medal

This is what I consider to be the "timeline" of the games. :unsure:
As for Beach Volleyball and the wiimake...

You can play BV whenever, and you could play the wiimake in the original's stead, though I highly recommend playing the original. I mean, a hard copy of the original PS1 game in it's complete form is sorta challenging to come by, what with some people asking OUTRAGEOUS x_x prices for them, 'specially on eBay for some odd reason. So if you can't get your hands on a hard copy, I suggest downloading ePSXe or PCSX-Reloaded and emulating the game, as both of the afforementioned do their job quite well. ;D

There's no exact order in terms of timeline, so I don't think the order really matters.

If the Klonoa series did have to be in a certain order, here's how I would have have it laid out:

-Moonlight Museum

-Door to Phantomile

-Empire of Dreams

-Lunatea's Veil

-Dream Champ Tournament

-Denetsu no Star Medal

-Dream Traveler of Noctis Sol

I consider Beach Volleyball more of its own thing (as most spin-off titles are) and even then, I agree with you guys about the "no real continuity" thing.
