Level-5 Recording English Voices For White Knight 2
RPG fans have been anxiously awaiting a North American release date for White Knight Chronicles 2, and we're hoping the wait is almost over.
Firstly, developer Level-5 opened a new studio in this country, which undoubtedly helps with localization procedures. Secondly, the game has been available in Japan since this past Summer, and Level-5 has stated in the past that US fans shouldn't have to wait a full year to see the sequel (it took over a year for the first WKC to arrive in the States). Thirdly and finally, according to The Silent Chief citing some blog entries by English voice actor Wally Wingert. Here are some of those comments:
"I started the day by heading over to Atlantis Recording to record a few voices for the new White Knight Chronicles game."
Then, on September 13:
"...I went to Atlantis studios in Santa Monica. When I was doing the latest 'White Knight Chronicles' game, we had forgotten to grab a couple of lines. So I went in, did 3 takes of 3 lines and was out in under 5 minutes. WILD!"
That was over a month ago so it's obvious that English voice recording for White Knight Chronicles 2 is in full swing. We're not entirely sure where that step falls in the overall localization process, but we'll consider it good news for now. Hopefully, we'll get a US date before the year is out...
