Document History ------------------- V1.0: 4/17/01 Launch version (3/22/01: Kaze no Klonoa 2: Sekai ga Nozonda Wasuremono now on sale) -------------- I. Basic Stuff -------------- I.1 What is this document? This document is an English language informational resource for Kaze no Klonoa 2: Sekai ga Nozonda Wasuremono (which I shall hereafter refer to simply as Klonoa2, for brevity's sake), a PlayStation2 quasi-3D platform game by Namco (and the sequel to the PlayStation quasi-3D platform game Kaze no Klonoa: Door to Phantomile (which I shall hereafter refer to simply as Klonoa1)). In this document, I'll be covering secrets, details, clarifications, and other such information which may be of interest to Klonoa2 fans. This is a Secrets FAQ, and not a strategy guide, btw, so I won't be including basic game mechanics, or level/boss strategies, or tips on maximizing your gem count, or anything like that in this document... This document was written for the J version of Klonoa2, currently the only version of the game. If/when an English version is produced, it will most likely (but not necessarily) be called "Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil". Kaze no Klonoa 2: Sekai ga Nozonda Wasuremono (PSX2, J) basic info: 1 DVD ROM Disc (SLPS-25033) 1 Player Works with: PlayStation2 8MB Memory Card (370 KB) 6800 (y)en I.2 What's new in Klonoa2 (compared to Klonoa1)? New world (the Klonoa2 story takes place in Lunatea, as opposed to Phantomile), new companions (Lolo and Popka), and some new creatures, enemies, and objects (with new properties and abilities). Klonoa only has 3 health points, instead of 6. New view: overhead. Used when Klonoa is lifted/tossed extremely high into the air and/or has a long way to fall. New stage type: Float Board stages. The Float Board is kind of like a snowboard (or surfboard) that can be used on a variety of fluid surfaces. Views in Float Board stages include: side view, back view, and yes, even front view. In Float Board stages, Klonoa cannot stop his forward movement, but can slow it down or speed it up a bit; in front and back views, he can also move from side to side. The Float Board will pop item bubbles when it passes through them (i.e. you don't necessarily have to shoot them). Maximum gem count records *are* kept from the initial completion of each stage. Stages *can* be replayed without first having to complete the game at least once. Support Character mode. If you have a controller plugged into the P2 slot, you can use Popka in a limited way as a support character. See the "Support Character" section of this document for more information. Two Extra stages (Towers), instead of just one. See the "puzzle pieces" section of this document for more information. Boss battle time attack mode. See the "Momet House" section of this document for more information. There are some other new things as well, but those are the major differences... -------------------- II. Collecting Stuff -------------------- II.1 What do I get for collecting the puzzle pieces? If you collect all 6 pieces in a stage (you can press R1 to check on your progress during a stage (the puzzle shown is not a representation of *which* pieces you've collected, btw; it just indicates how many)), you'll earn a Momet Doll for that stage. Momet Dolls that you've earned will be displayed in a bookcase to the right of your Vision summary/select list (press R1 at the stage select map). If you collect any 8 (or more) Momet Dolls, Momet will open the attraction "Joy Joy Tower" (i.e. the first Extra stage) for you. If you collect all 16 Momet Dolls, Momet will open the attraction "Horror Horror Tower" (i.e. the second Extra stage) for you. These two attractions will be located to the right and left, respectively, of Momet House on the stage select map. II.1.A The Tower stages are hard! Do I get anything for finishing them? Yep. Once you complete either Tower, Momet will give you a "Concert Hall" (i.e. music player) option in Momet House, with tracks 00-27. Completing the other Tower will then earn you tracks 28-54. The music in the Concert Hall will play in relay mode, btw, so once the music player gets done with one track, it'll automatically proceed to the next; so really, it's kind of like having a music CD on auto-repeat... =) In addition, completing Joy Joy Tower will earn you a silver trophy, which will be displayed on the left side of the top of the bookcase. And completing Horror Horror Tower will earn you a gold trophy, which will be displayed on the right side of the top of the bookcase. Time Attack high scores (fastest completion time for each) for the two Towers will be recorded, and displayed on the stage select map (move Klonoa to a Tower to see the high score for that Tower). II.2 What do I get for collecting gems? Every time the gem counter passes 99, you earn an extra life. Also, for every stage you earn 150 or more gems on, a new picture in the Memorial Gallery (located at Momet House) will be released. The maximum gem count you've earned for each stage will be listed on the Vision summary/select list on your status summary screen (press R1 at the stage select map). In order to obtain a gem count of 150, proper use of the mirror spirits is essential. Note that it is possible to obtain more than 150 on some (but not all) of the stages... There are a total of 19 pictures in the Memorial Gallery. The gallery starts out initially with picture 1. Pictures 2 through 19 will be released in order, regardless of what order you choose to complete (with 150 or more gems) the 18 stages (16 normal, and 2 Tower stages) in. --------------- III. Miscellany --------------- III.1 Does it make a difference which Joilant/Volk stage I choose first? Not really. The ending sequence (story) for the stage will differ slightly, depending upon which you choose first (there are two basic endings (for each pair of stages), one for whichever stage is completed first, and one for whichever is completed second), but that's about all. Note that whichever ending gets assigned to a stage will remain assigned to that stage for any subsequent time you replay that stage (on your continuing game)... Regardless of which stages you do first, the complete Vision summary list will always have the stages listed in a standard order, which places the Joilant amusement park stage before the waterslide stage, and the Volk underground stage before the aboveground stage. III.2 So... what's this about Momet House? Momet House is where most of the extras in the game will be found. Momet House will become available on the stage select map after you defeat Leptio, the Flower Clown (i.e. the Joilant boss battle). It will be located South (down) of the central plaza of Joilant, and is easily distinguishable because it will be marked with, of all things, a mustache (Momet's mustache). Initially, Momet House will start with two options: a Boss Time Attack and a Memorial Gallery. Initially, the Boss Time Attack will start with two bosses; a total of six can be earned (a boss will be added to the list after you've defeated it in the main story). After you've recorded Time Attack scores for all six bosses, a Total Time score will also be listed in the upper left of the Time Attack boss select screen. See the "collecting gems" section of this document for more information on the Memorial Gallery. After you've completed at least one of the Tower stages, a Concert Hall (music player) option will also become available in Momet House (see the "puzzle pieces" section of this document for more information). III.2.A Can Momet unlock more than one thing at a time? Alas, no. So if you earn more than one thing before visiting Momet, multiple visits (after entering, exit, enter again, and repeat as necessary) may be needed. Each time you earn a new feature from Momet, there will be a special sequence (Momet congratulates you) when you enter Momet House. So if there is no such intro sequence, that means you've unlocked everything Momet currently owes you. III.3 And what's this about using Popka as a Support Character? If you have a controller plugged into the P2 slot, you can use Popka in a limited way as a support character. I think this was intended as a feature to help out the younger players of the game (by having a friend or parent assist him/her). Anyway, during gameplay, if you press the START button on the P2 controller, Popka will appear on screen, and begin following Klonoa around (if you press the START button again, Popka will leave). You will not have any direct control over Popka's movements, but if you press the [square] button, Popka will give Klonoa a Support Jump, a super jump that will lift Klonoa a little higher (if I'm not mistaken) than a normal double jump would. In order to prevent excessive abuse, giving Klonoa a Support Jump will also dizzy Popka for a little while, during which time he can't do anything. The Support Jump can be used at almost any time (for example, it won't work if Klonoa is hanging onto a Gumi). So by utilizing Popka, you can do such things as reaching a jumping height twice as high as normal (double jump, then Support Jump), or bringing a captured creature somewhere you're not supposed to have one (use a Support Jump to clear an obstacle, where normally you'd have to double jump (and use the captured creature)). Using Popka as a support character can make things a lot easier, but since the game really is designed to be completed without his help, you may want to complete the game at least once the normal way (P1 controller only) before making use of Popka. Note: By utilizing Popka, it is possible, on some stages, to get a higher max gem count than normal. ERRATUM - The manual incorrectly states that you can use either the [square] or O button on the P2 controller to give Klonoa a Support Jump. Please note that the O button will *not* work to initiate a Support Jump; you'll have to use the [square] button. III.3.A Is there any disadvantage to using Popka as a Support Character? Actually, yes, there is. Any Time Attack score (Boss Time Attack, and the two Towers) will be disregarded if Popka is used during the Time Attack stage/battle. Note: Popka can accompany Klonoa, but if he gives Klonoa a Support Jump, the time counter changes from white to green, and the time score will not be counted for the purposes of the Time Attack high score (fastest time). Using Popka doesn't seem to (negatively) affect anything else. So, for example, even if you use Popka on the Tower stages, you'll still be able to release the Concert Hall, and earn the two trophies. III.4 Is there anything else you want to mention? Sure. Here follow a few miscellaneous notes and comments which will hopefully be of interest or note to at least some of you... Vision Select - After you've completed the game at least once, you'll be able to select (and play) stages without having to travel to them on the stage select map. Just call up the Status screen (press R1), and you should find that the Vision summary list has become a "Vision Selector" option. Select a stage with the d-pad, and press O to begin. When complete, the Vision Select list should include: 16 normal stages, 2 Tower stages, and Momet House. L1/L2 actions - If any of you were wondering, these don't have any real impact on gameplay. They're mainly there just for aesthetic value. Klonoa has a maximum of two L1/L2 actions at any particular time. Rikuri notes - The rikuri is a crystalline creature that looks sort of like a fish. By hitting another creature with a captured rikuri, the rikuri will return to you and mutate one step in the following sequence: normal - yellow - blue - red - red - (disappears). A rikuri of a particular color (yellow, blue, or red) can be used to destroy a crystal of the same color. Note: I have successfully used a red rikuri to destroy a blue crystal, so it's probable that red rikuri can be used against red, blue, or yellow crystals, and that blue rikuri can be used against blue or yellow crystals. Note on romanization: I don't know what the "official" spelling of "rikuri" is, so I'm using the standard romanization of the katakana. Maximum lives - The maximum number of extra lives you can have at any particular time is 99. Save slot markings - The save slot for your continuing game will be marked with a Book icon once you've completed one of two tasks: a) finish the game at least once, or b) get 150 or more gems on all 18 stages. Once you've completed both of these tasks, your save slot will also be marked with a Ring icon. The five kingdoms of Lunatea - In case anybody was wondering, here are the representative concepts of the five kingdoms of Lunatea: yasuragi (serenity/peace) yorokobi (joy/happiness) ikari (aggression/anger) madoi (confusion/delusion) kanashimi (sorrow/sadness) Character names - And if anybody's interested, here's a list of the main characters in the story, and their official name-spellings, based upon the in-game text, the Memorial Gallery, the Concert Hall, and the Klonoa2 pages on the Namco (Japan) website (www.namco.co.jp): Klonoa Lolo Popka Leorina Tat Yogensha Baguji (Baguji the Wiseman) Momet Kanashimi no Oh (King of Sorrow) Note: "Wise man" should technically be two words, but since it's printed as one word in the Concert Hall, that's how I'm listing it above; "Sage" and "Seer" are also good words for "Yogensha". ------------------------------------------------ The latest version of this file can be found at: Dreaming of Lunatea... http://www.best.com/~ruyeyama/psx2/dol.html ------------------------------------------------ (eof)
