Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series has been available on various platforms, including the Nintendo Switch, for over half a year now. That said, Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series producer Ryo Ishida has been spending the year so far by talking about the game in various interviews.
For example, Ishida was recently interviewed in the latest issue of Lost In Cult. In it, Ishida revealed that development of the game began on the Nintendo Switch. Ishida also said that “around the time we completed the Switch version, we were presented with the opportunity to put it on Nintendo Direct and, consequently, [reveal the existence of the collection] to a worldwide audience”.
Ishida said that they were grateful for the opportunity to so. This is because Nintendo Directs, according to Ishida, are “an excellent medium for spreading information and awareness among game fans, because that’s where game announcements are actively [anticipated]”.
