According to this 1UP report, Namco’s announced a new Klonoa game for Wii. From the piece:

Namco Bandai Games announced this week in Japan that the original Klonoa is getting a full-on Wii remake, taking the original and giving it a hefty graphical enhancement. The black-and-white flying cat thingy is debuting on the Wii December 4 in Japan at the relatively cheap price of 4800 yen; no details on a US version have been shared yet.

The Wii-make will be the same game as before — you control Klonoa as he uses his magic ring to beat up enemies and hop around on platforms and also experience the saddest story to ever hit the platform genre (serious). You can play the game with just the Wiimote pad and two buttons, holding the thing horizontally, though the Classic Controller will presumably be an option as well.

It’s all gone Japanese. We need a rest.
