The 1990s were full of platform games that caught the eye of gamers. While games like Super Mario 64 would have stolen the show, many other intriguing platformers were released during the period. An example was Klonoa: Gate to Phantomile for the original PlayStation, the first game from the Klonoa series.
First launched in 1997, Klonoa: Gate to Phantomile featured a mix of 2D and 3D elements. Since the first game of Klonoa The series was released, several other titles were created, and a dedicated fanbase grew. In fact, the series recently received a revival thanks to the Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Serieswhich included remasters of Klonoa: Gate to Phantomile and Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil. One of the reasons fans still love the series is the design of the playable character, Klonoa, and one player recently decided to do some fan art featuring the titular hero.
Taking to Reddit, a user known as ConstanzaL shared a photo of a recent crochet doll they made based on the Klonoa series. Specifically, this doll was made to look like Klonoa. In the image, the artist has seated the crochet doll on a piece of wood against a background of leaves. However, the crochet doll made the image stand out as it had all the bright colors of the character from the game. Some design highlights included a Pac man– themed hat, red pants and long droopy ears. The Reddit user even gave the Klonoa doll a pair of brown shoes and yellow gloves to complete the look.
This crocheted Klonoa doll made by ConstanzaL has been buzzing with gamers on Reddit. Since the creator posted a photo of the doll, over 800 users have voted for the creation and many have commented on the design. For example, a number of players complimented the artist, noting that the fan art was adorable. “So cute,” nobodyyouknow33 said simply. Also, another fan wondered how long it took to make the crochet doll. Fortunately, ConstanzaL replied that it took about three days to complete this cute and detailed Klonoa design. Additionally, some said in the comments section that they were glad the show is seeing some love again with Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series.
Impressive, this is far from the only crochet fan art made by ConstanzaL. Over the past few months, the talented gamer has made a number of dolls themed around the animal crossing series. For example, they had already made a detailed crochet doll of Bob, including his purple coloring, feline features, and floral shirt. Now that their most recent project is complete, it will be interesting to see which video game characters ConstanzaL decides to crochet next.
Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series is now available for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
