White Knight Chronicles 2 To Feature Updated Original?
Wow, if this is true and everything works out, let's hope more publishers decide to treat the release of sequels in this way.
"Bang for your buck" is always a concern for most gaming consumers, and maybe that's why Level 5 wishes to get on your good side: according to Andriasang, it appears they will include an updated version of the original White Knight Chronicles in the box with the sequel. This would be just plain awesome and it makes sense, too, as WKC2 is a true follow-up story and takes place one year after the events of the first title. The info comes from "officially distributed materials" so we're all hoping it's reliable and furthermore, Game Jouhou is reporting that another retailer says the version of WKC featured with the sequel "will be updated to White Knight 2 specifications in terms of gameplay and mechanics." So in other words, you'll be looking at the complete saga with the same mechanics throughout; a simply grand idea that, if utilized in other sequel projects, would make many a gamer very, very happy. Imagine if Naughty Dog had released Uncharted 2: Among Thieves with Uncharted: Drake's Fortune; same price, and the original game would be upgraded to play just like the sequel...how freakin' cool would that be?
Take any series and apply this idea to it, and I can pretty much guarantee it's a win-win situation, provided the publisher doesn't decide to charge $100 for it, or something.
