White Knight Chronicles: "The Days Of Awakening Coming Soon"

Level 5 gave all new PlayStation 3 owners and RPG fans hope several years back when they unveiled their PS3 exclusive title, White Knight Story. But then it suffered several heavy delays, and throughout most of 2008, all news on the Level 5 front has essentially disappeared. Since the early days when this project was announced, the name has changed - it's White Knight Chronicles now - and everyone has started to worry.

Well, as small and perhaps insignificant as this tiny piece of information is, we'll cling to it like Titanic survivors to a freezing plank of wood. As many Japanese sources are saying, the official site for the game now boasts the encouraging words, "The Days of Awakening are Coming Soon." This goes in line with Sony's insistence that the promising RPG will launch during the current fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2009. However, even that prediction seems out of whack, simply because we've really had nothing in the way of updates or new information over the past few months. If a game was reaching the end of its production phase, shouldn't we know more about it by now? And why didn't it come to E3 or Leipzig? Dare we hope it shows up at this year's Tokyo Game Show? You know, the only video we have of the game (which actually featured gameplay) came from last year's TGS, as did the screenshot pictured here.

We know many PS3 owners out there are desperately awaiting news of a stellar exclusive RPG like White Knight Chronicles, and "Awakening Soon" - while not gigantic - is indeed a new addition and in fact, a glimmer of hope. They showed it at TGS 2007...so we now want to see it at TGS 2008. With a release date, please!

Delays are fine, so long as the game doesnt suck monkey balls. But I have faith in Level 5 to come through on this game.

Your looking at a hardcore Dark Cloud fan right here, the quicker this game comes out the better.

I played the demo of Dark Cloud 1 and loved every minute of it. Apparently they're making a Dark Cloud 3 for ps3. I got excited about this game when I heard about the "city on the giant turtles back". Can't wait for more info.

I say don't rush the title. I really liked the Dark Cloud serious and they gave the PSP some love as well with Jeane D'Arc as well. The guys Level 5 know what their doing so I say it will be ready when its ready. Just don't let White Knight Chronicles be like Duke Nukem Forever and I will be cool with the wait.

I hope level 5 takes over and leaves SQuenix in the pile of crap that they've created for themselves. Cause if FF13 is gonna be like FF12 then Im done. Im still iffy whether or not ima get ff13. squenix screwed us as loyal fans when they decided to start money grubbing from 360, escpecially with Star Ocean 4. that announcement made me feel like i was kicked squaw in the nuts. Go Level 5, kick sqenix' asses!!!
