Now here's something interesting that I'm sure not too many of you have seen before.
Starting with the 20th Anniversary Issue in 2008 and ending with the Final Issue in 2012, I was reading Nintendo Power Magazine all the time. As some of you might remember from my introduction, I first found out about Klonoa through an advertisement for the Wii game at the very end of a Nintendo Power issue from 2009. But I wouldn't know anything about Klonoa or his games at all until nearly three years after that...
Later issues in the magazine's run would have a short two-page section known as "STAR POWER: A closer look at the characters we love" which would go more in-depth into the history and development of various different game characters, with a new character being featured every month. While these were often Nintendo characters from franchises such as Mario and Zelda, every once in a while the section would feature characters from franchises made by other companies, so long as they had at least three or more games on a Nintendo system. And with a good amount of his games being exclusive to Nintendo systems, Klonoa was certainly no exception to this.
So here I found Klonoa's Star Power profile after rummaging through my collection of Nintendo Power issues. These scans were taken from my copy of issue 279, published on June of 2012. This contains some pretty interesting facts such as how Klonoa's ears were originally going to have no real function, and how some words in the Phantomilian language are actually altered words from other languages.
Hope you guys enjoy! I haven't even been able to find scans of the more popular characters featured on Star Power, so I believe that this might be a pretty rare find!
