Last year, it was revealed that Bandai Namco’s icomic platforming game franchise, Klonoa, will be getting an anime film adaptation. Production was said to be handled by US-based studio Henshin, Inc, and Rob Pereyda was attached as producer. Unfortunately for fans of the series, the project has already been canceled.
The announcement of the cancelation came from manga author Hitoshi Ariga, who was on board as co-producer of the project. He was also set to write the script and design the characters. Ariga took to Twitter to apologize to the fans, while also thanking them for the encouragement and support. He’s not completely giving up, though. Ariga expressed hope for a new Klonoa adventure in the future.
Ariga’s announcement was later confirmed by Henshin founder Rob Pereyda, via Anime News Network.
