White Knight Chronicles Lands US Release Date
Back in 2006, we heard about this awesome RPG coming to the PlayStation 3 called "White Knight Story." Since that time, it has gone through a name change and a lengthy development process over at Level 5, and unfortunately for North American gamers, it has been available in Japan for some time.
But our day is a-comin'. As announced over at the PlayStation Blog, the International Edition of White Knight Chronicles will launch in the US on February 2, 2010. Not only will we get the fully localized game, but this edition also boasts 50 disc-based online quests (to be completed solo or multiplayer) plus the hint of much more come launch, voice chat, Live Talk (Leonard and his party will have little side discussions during the game), and the Georama, which is where you build an online village for your character and can then invite friends to participate in quests online. So there you go, role-playing fans: WKC finally has a confirmed North American release date and thankfully, it gives you more than a full month before Final Fantasy XIII hits on March 9. You can get your fill of Chronicles in five weeks, can't you? This is one game we've been waiting on for a very long time and we're just thankful it doesn't have to butt heads with FFXIII; Level 5 deserves a more open playing field to appeal to the widest possible assortment of RPG followers.
So anyway, we figure this will come as good news to our readers. I know for a fact that a great many of you have been waiting with bated breath for WKC.
