Pics from my Klonoa guidebooks
« on: August 13, 2013, 08:51:48 PM »
I own several Klonoa guidebooks which were sold only in Japan. I'm looking to someday own all of them as they're filled with some great pictures! I wish I could own more but when I see them for sale online they're really expensive. >_> Scanning is a little difficult with some of the books as they can be thick and I want to avoid ruining the binding. x_x If you'd like a better or clearer look at a picture let me know and I'll do a rescan!
Update 2/5: One more book and my guidebook collection is complete! I'm missing the Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament guidebook by Famitsu.
Update 2/27: I scanned the Klonoa: DTP comic book in it's entirety. =)
Update 3/8: I own all the guidebooks now so the scans collection is complete. I hope everyone enjoys. =)

That 20's/30's-esque Klonoa in the Klonoa 2 book is hella adorbs. I wish they used that design for something u^u

I'd sell several of my own internal organs to be able to draw like Yoshihiko Arai... It's so beautiful...

Awesome collection, on a side note isn't it amazing how much effort and neat design they put into those guidebooks.

The design in these guidebooks are great! I own guidebooks for several other non-Klonoa games and the same can be said for them too. I own the only English strategy guidebook made for Klonoa 2 and it has nothing on the Japanese ones. xP

Guess what.. I put some money aside to order myself two more Klonoa guidebooks from Yahoo Japan. It's the Famitsu Klonoa 2 guidebook and a Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament guidebook. Their arrival might take a while but I assure you that I'll get snapshots up as soon as I get 'em! =)

Dat Namco, spoiling everything in the controls section, seems legit. I like how they show the maps's models from the top, they sure are detailed for being ps1.
Thanks for the shots anyways!

Updated the first post with a link to view pics from the Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil Famitsu guidebook I just got today. The Klonoa 2 Dream Champ Tournament one is still on it's way to me. Enjoy. =)
