Heck No! Keep The Cat We Know!

First, the good news: sounds like that Klonoa re-make for the Nintendo Wii will be coming stateside.

The bad news? Our favorite floppy-eared cat-like creature may be re-modeled as a bat. Yes, a bat. This isn’t your typical character re-design. It’s an overhaul. A new character.
