White Knight Chronicles PSP Titled, Officially Detailed
Well, Sega did it with Valkyria Chronicles; why shouldn't Level-5 do it with another "Chronicles?"
The first details of White Knight Chronicles: Dogma Wars for the PSP have been revealed in the latest Famitsu; we had heard it would be coming, but until now, nothing was really known about the handheld sequel. Dogma Wars takes place 10,000 years before the events of the original title on the PS3; it's the "Dogma Age," where the Yshrenia and Athwan Empires fought for ultimate control. Yshrenia were the ones who created the knights as the great equalizers in battle, but the game is set in the Athwan perspective, which means the knights are enemies. You will play as members of Athwan's special "Train Battalion," a group whose express purpose is to defeat those knights...if they can. They didn't have "trains" 10,000 years ago; at least, not the trains you and I know: screenshots show horses pulling cars and actually, you'll be spending a lot of time on that "train."
You'll see some characters detailed there, including Kaishius (loyal to Athwan, but foresees the Empire's fall), Anbietta (mysterious, fate-believing girl), Eldas (an officer with "great tactical knowledge"), and Yumando (part of a mysterious new force called the "Black Wings"). You can check out some early media of those characters over at Andriasang. When's the game coming? Well, for now, all we know is that White Knight Chronicles: Dogma Wars is set to release some time next year in Japan. We'll let you know about any North American/European details when they become available (hopefully soon).
