I'll keep this one short: We've got one brand new copy of Klonoa: Door to Phantomile for the Wii, courtesy of Namco Bandai. One of you intrepid readers is going to win it. And how, you may ask? By writing a Klonoa-themed haiku and posting it in the comments, that's how. Remember, a traditional haiku has three lines at five, seven, and five syllables each. Here's my crappy example.


Floppy ears are cool,
My hat has Pac-Man on it.
Eat wind bullets, bitch.

I'll give you the duration of the weekend to get your haiku on here, and then pick the best one and announce the winner on Monday. If you need some inspiration, you might take a look at this week's Quick Look.

Awww... too bad I already bought it, beat it, completed Extra Vision, and collected everything (in 2 days) already. 

You guys maybe should do this kinda stuff before things get released :p ... but good looking-out regardless! 

Already beat it
Collected everything too
Game is fantastic!

Collecting crystals,
Trying to save the princess.
Yep: it's a classic.

That's my best effort.

Oh, and may I chime in with some Japanese nerd-dom (nerddom? nerdom?). Because of the way the Japanese language works, it's letters, not syllables. King-Man out!
#7 Posted by JackiJinx (3089 posts) -

I just did a haiku contest to get a t-shirt on a Japanese site! Man. The power of haiku.

The power of rings,
Dewey, acid trips, big ears:
The power of dreams.

Oh, poor Nintendo.
Have a Wii? Get Klonoa.
What else? Pft. Beats me!

#8 Posted by SpinCookie (680 posts) -

I have never played
This game on the ps1
This Wii one looks rad.
#9 Edited by License_To_Bill (792 posts) -

Classic story told,
Lost amongst the shovelware,
Why make a new one?

Admittedly bleak, but a haiku all the same.

#10 Posted by JJOR64 (18889 posts) -

I'll give it a shot.

Klonoa is a super hero.
His Wind Ring owns all of them.
You seem him, run away.

Is that a good haiku :P? (And, quite obvious disclaimer, this is a joke.)

Awesome haiku. Is there some sort of rule limiting the number of haikus you can enter (and how many posts you can spread them across)? (And Klonoa's 98. Sorry.)
#36 Posted by oldschool (7264 posts) -

Klonoa is classic

I played back in the day
cool old school fun game

Klonoa is also awesome
Stretchy arms are the Sh*t!

#41 Posted by SixtyXCelph (211 posts) -

Klonoa is hip
With the hat tilted sideways
And the Pac-Man pin

I didn't get a chance to play it originally, so, whee!  Here's my chance. (^_^)

#46 Posted by vinyl_warrior (12 posts) -

A Wii game to play?
Reborn from the distant past
Klonoa is here


"I want Klonoa"
No, "Klonoa GET!" is best
It's very Japanese

#47 Posted by Steve_C (1750 posts) -

I'm in the UK so the copy wouldn't work on my wii. Regardless, to entertain the contest:

Tubby stonemason,
Don't doubt his love for Lephise,
