Level-5 Has Big Plans For White Knight Chronicles 2
White Knight Chronicles 2 has been out in Japan since July 8 (lucky, lucky), but there's good news: Level-5 has a lot more to add, and all that extra stuff should - theoretically - come packed into the US version of the game.
Based on new details in this week's Famitsu and as summarized by Andriasang, Level-5 intends to enhance and upgrade their sequel" in (or beyond) January of 2011, they'll toss in a whole new "story quest" element; they basically let you experience a fresh story with your avatar as the main character. In this new mode, you'll find new maps, knights and enemies. Then, planned for Spring (or beyond), the game will net a "Guild System." This let you and your allies create a shared space on Geonet with a message board, rooms, and shops. Everything will only be accessible by members of your guild, which will have a reputation parameter as well. The higher the reputation, the the higher the guild level, and that translates to fancier rooms and shops. Other updates planned are:
- New equipment items
- New functionality for message boards (including favorite lists)
- Tab view and genre-based organization option for journal entries
- New colors and parts for your Arc Knight
- Seasonal Georama parts
- New types of quests, including quests with mega tough bosses, time attack quests and "free hunt quests" which allow you to enjoy combat and item collection without worrying about time, guild rank or level.
WKC2 is a game fans of the original most definitely want. Hopefully, Level-5 will deliver a US release date before long, and when the game finally does arrive, all this cool stuff might be included...
