Klonoa anime film in development at Henshin

Produced by Rob Pereyda and written by Hitoshi Ariga.


Henshin, a U.S.-based animation production company, is developing an animated feature based on Bandai Namco’s Klonoa series.

The feature will be produced by Henshin founder Rob Pereyda and written by manga artist Hitoshi Ariga, who will also serve as co-producer and character designer and who previously worked as a character designer on the Pokemon series. Pereyda, on the other hand, worked as a producer on a number of Bandai Namco titles such as Bravoman, Mappy, and Wonder Momo.

Production start and release dates for the film have yet to be announced.
