Every time I hear someone say that the Klonoa series has been "forgotten" by Namco, I immediately disagree. I know it's not like a new game or anything, but they reference him often in other games (Ridge Racer Slipstream is an example that we've discussed here before).
If they really forgot about the series, wouldn't they just ignore it altogether?
On top of that there's the whole ShiftyLook thing. Some might say, "But they never finished the comic!". That's not the point. Someone at Namco thought that Klonoa needed some revival, and got the series involved with ShiftyLook. They got a good writer, and a great artist to do the comic too, so it wasn't just some no effort, halfhearted attempt either.
Even more so, they put Empire of Dreams on the Wii U. Like I said, it's not anything new, but it's certainly a start. Again, if they didn't care, they would have ignored the series and they wouldn't have done anything like that.
And to top it all off, both of these happened in the past few months. I don't know about you all, but that doesn't sound like "forgotten" to me.
