Rumor: White Knight Chronicles 2 Hits Japan On July 8
If you think this is really early, bear in mind that North American gamers had to wait about a year for the first game.
The rumors have been flying concerning a Japanese launch date for White Knight Chronicles 2, which will supposedly be featured in the next edition of Famitsu. But before we even got that far, a retailer has apparently leaked the date so many have been waiting for: according to JustPushStart citing Japanese retailer Game Star, the highly anticipated sequel should launch on July 8. Nothing is official right now; Level 5 hasn't confirmed anything but considering how far along they should be in development, July 8 seems possible. However, either way, there is no announcement of US version just yet, so fans of the original just have to hope the first WKC sold enough to warrant another localization. And if they do decide to give us WKC2, we're all hoping the latter process won't take quite as long. Some critics will also be looking for significant improvements in the gameplay, which many didn't exactly enjoy or appreciate; we're basically one of the few who enjoyed the adventure. But even so, based on what we've heard, the sequel should be a lot better in a number of different ways.
We'll let you know if Famitsu or Level 5 confirms July 8 as the Japanese launch date and if that happens, we can all start guessing at a possible US date...how's about holiday 2010?
