White Knight Sequel To Boast Several Improvements
Don't be surprised if you see a bunch of news articles concerning the sequel to White Knight Chronicles. Remember, US gamers had to wait well over a year for the original title, which only just released last month.
Nevertheless, the designers have been cranking away on WKC2 for quite some time now and president and CEO of Level 5, Akihiro Hino, has been keeping everyone updated via his Twitter page. Yeah, it's all in Japanese but you can read the brief summary over at Examiner.com, where we receive several new details. First of all, development is clearly in full swing, although the "balance and tempo" of the game was a problem at the outset. Both have been improved, though, and Hino does admit that he wants to further improve on some of the drawbacks and shortcomings of the first title. There are some new screenshots via the previous link, too, and not surprisingly, they look pretty darn good. WKC wasn't exactly a visual powerhouse but it had flashes of brilliance in the environment, and we're willing to bet the sequel will be even prettier. It seems we were one of the few sources that actually enjoyed the game, but we know most of our RPG fans liked it, too.
Therefore, we'll be certain to keep an eye out for more status updates regarding White Knight Chronicles 2. Let's just hope it doesn't take quite as long for it to arrive on US shores...
