Will DLC For White Knight Be Included In North American Release?
White Knight Chronicles is one of the most anticipated PlayStation 3 titles so far this generation...even if the only people "anticipating" it are hardcore role-playing fans.
Anyway, it seems the first batch of extra content will be hitting the Japanese PlayStation Store tomorrow, which kinda gives North American gamers a preview of things to come. According to GameCenterOnline, this new pack, entitled "Futatsu no Hgeki," will add more in the way of online content, and it's recommended for players between Levels 9 and 46. ...er, that's an awfully wide gap, so does that mean just about anyone can play it? The good news is that this pack will supposedly be completely free, so of course, North American gamers are hoping for the same treatment when WKC finally arrives over here. However, this announcement of fresh new content for the game - which just released on December 25 in Japan - leads to an important question: considering the large gap between the Japanese and NA launch dates, might we expect some of this extra content to be included in the game when it hits stateside? If a game comes much later to another platform, for example, it will often include all the downloadable extras that became available during the release gap. Remember Bioshock?
Level 5 may do this with White Knight. Therefore, despite the wait, might we be able to assume that North American gamers will get a more robust version of the game, complete with any current DLC? It's not a bad idea!
