White Knight Chronicles Launch Date Brought Into Question?

Due to the fact that we at PSXE and our readers - we know our readers! - are looking for any new information concerning Level 5's highly anticipated PlayStation 3 RPG, White Knight Chronicles, we bring you the latest update.

According to PS3Center.net, they've learned that WKC will not be part of the lineup at SCEJ's annual Experience! PlayStation Japanese convention held in Tokyo. This is worrisome, because the event typically shows off all the titles that will release before the year is over, along with already-available games. Remember, Level 5 has already confirmed a December 25 release date for Japan for White Knight, which has North American gamers hoping for a February or March launch. But without the game at Experience! PlayStation, should we be worried about a delay...? Perhaps not. The most recent update is that Level 5 will host their own event later this month, which of course may be dedicated to the official unveiling of their closely followed role-playing project. And if this does happen, we'll all be looking for a reconfirmation of that Japanese December 25 date, and if possible, release dates for North America and Europe, too. We're just a little concerned that it's not coming to Sony's event; it's a relatively big one, and it seems senseless to miss it.

But we've also heard that Level 5 is tossing out some early advertising for WKC, so that's a good sign. No point in advertising something that won't be finished for a while, right? We'll keep you updated with any new developments...we want this game!

No big deal for me if the game is delayed, I have plenty of games to keep me busy.

I want this game.
The first "real" JRPG on PS3. This is on the top of my list for 2009 together with FFXIII and vXIII. May the JRPG heaven come to PS3 platform!

OT: Just swapped my 250gb hdd to a 500gb hdd in my PS3
Not because have to, but because I can =)

I am hanging my hat on this friggin game until FFXIII is done waiting on 360's backlog, so a delay is bad news. But the old standby is always true, better to wait for a solid product than get one rushed out the door (cough, 360 Last Remnant, cough) Ahem, I'd be surprised if they announced a NA release date, localization will probably take forever. I'm deliberately drawing out Eternal Sonata so RPG goodness lasts.

This game looks great. Need a NA release date to get me excited though. Still, a Jap delay would mean a NA delay which kinda stinks. Oh well... back to Fallout.

I want WKC to be a perfect 10 so if it gets delayed, I'm not too concerned. A slight delay won't affect me at all. Sony's line-up is still going strong and the games are gonna keep coming. I got plenty more games to play:

Street Fighter 4
Killzone 2 (best next-gen shooter)
Resident Evil 5
And I think God Of War 3 should be dropping around that time too.

Not to mention, that I still got Fallout 3, LBP (which never gets old), R2, Deadspace, and HOME will be open for all.
