SCEJ and Level-5 have both updated their White Knight Chronicles official page, by adding a text under the main front page image, stating that: "The days of awakening is coming soon".
Finally dammit. It been about a year now since we heard anything new about this game.
I'm been waiting for this game since I seen that huge battle video ages ago. It looks like a sweet RPG and I can't wait.. maybe they will suprise us and release it this December :P
If that the case, I hope the have english subs on the disk, because I will import it
If they had english subs wouldn't that make the localization easier and quicker or am I missing something. but I would probably import to if it did :)
...IS THE GAME I'M WAITING FOR. It's seriously the PS3 game I think I'll most enjoy over and above all PS3 games, since I'm an RPG fan. 12
A release date would be good.
I absolutely need this game. Level 5 got me hooked with Dark Cloud 1-2, Rogue Galaxy, and Dragon Quest VIII Gameplay looked killer months ago, really looking forward to seeing more since it's had some major time to cook. Any information at TGS would be great. EDIT: GamerMan, you're completely right. I forgot all about Jeanne d'Arc. And I just had it in my PSP last week. Though ive been playin alot of Wipeout to get ready for HD. And you cant forget their Prof Layton series on DS which is pretty good too. Level 5 is just a great developer
All you guys. So completely ignroant to what Sony has coming. Not even in relation to WKS alone. Ahh, I am in bliss. TGS people, hold it out till then.
for Level 5...Jeanne d'Arc, best SRPG by far on the PSP as far as I'm concerned. Yes it had some weak strategy boards but it was unique and very fun. It also was their first SRPG as far as I remember EDIT:"Prof Layton series on DS which is pretty good too" -- Liquid Dust ... Yeah I keep hearing about it but I don't own a DS.. someone want to loan me a DS and the game.. I'm very intrigued about this game now. :)
I played through and thoroughly enjoyed Jean D'Arc. These guys have style and know what's up. 12
As expected they will probably show this game at TGS, I hope that they announce this game (atleast for Japan) for Christmas 08 and then it should be out everywhere else in early 09 (although if it has eng subs I will probably import it). Also did anyone else prefer the name White Knight Story? Chronicles sounds cool, but White Knight Story only sounds better.
Yes you are correct it used to be White Knight Story -- now it's White Knight Chronicles... I wonder if that was a typo or if they really did change the name during that year of no news of this game ? Hmmm..
Games like, Dark Cloud, Dark Cloud 2, and Jeanne d'Arc etc. pushed Sony's consoles to the limit. Lets hope that the same will apply to White Knight Story. Move over FF, the new kids are in town... ;) p.s. Dont forget that those Dark Cloud 3 rumours, that have been kicking about. If they are true, then development for WKS cant be far from complete, no?!
i still refer to it as White Knight Story. i think they should have kept it. it just rolls off the tongue easier. Valkyria Chronicles and White Knight Chronicles may confuse the masses, as silly as that seems (hell, people were getting Prototype and inFamous mixed up, and those games are NOTHING alike in any way outside of being sandbox titles).
It's been "Chronicles" for a while now. I really wish it was still White Knight Story though, it sounds SO much better, even if you don't consider Valkyria Chronicles. I'll still call it WKS, I don't care if people think I'm retarded (if those people don't know anything about this game).
*gets excited* Why do I have a feeling that TGS is going to be the day White Knight Chronicles finally reveals itself? Pleeeeeeeease let it be true!
See my comment in the Gamer Zone. BTW, it sucks you got banned to this hell hole (again, lol). Just goes to show that people can't handle a dose of reality! ^_^
Ya got that right. .~.
Desperate Xbots - what can they do but to wait and die a "HOMEless..."
"BTW, it sucks you got banned to this hell hole (again, lol). Just goes to show that people can't handle a dose of reality!" I know the same feeling, I just got off a TWO WEEK(!) ban from the gamer zone, EVERYTIME I post a comment that talks some sense into 360 fanboys (i.e the truth) I get blasted with -bubbles, disagrees etc.
it's just because he has been swimming in an ocean filled with sausages that think that he's a girl. i been trolling the gamer zone for some time now and even insulting people and I haven't been banned for some reason. maybe nobody cares about me. ;-( but I'm trying harder to gain my ban from the open zone properly! ;-D
At least youre not permabanned to the Open zone like I am. Frikkin nazi mods here are disgusting.
I have a feeling Sony is saving a lot of its big-name projects for TGS. Hell, if they reveal the next Team ICO game AND more info on WKS, i'm sure it will spur some hardware sales soon after. Can't wait till October!
TGS is Japanese event and games you mentioned are made by Japanese studios, so it is natural that they are shown during TGS, thats how it has been for years.
well, Level 5 is on the roster for TGS so that's a given. but maybe we'll be treated to something earlier, let's hope so
Ok. This is what I was waiting for the last months of silence. Some info! I will be a green 'troll' as my first character. Called xboxfanboi. <jk>
You might wanna edit the last part of that so your comment doesn't get deleted... :)
love level 5
Sony should do everythng in their power to acquire them
Although I love the idea of Sony acquiring Level 5, I still think it should be a second party at most as oppose to first. I love the Professor Layton series and it's damn good on the DS.
As long as they don't do games on xbox or Wii they can be 4th parties.
Legend of Dragoon 2, Dark Cloud 3 and White Knight Story is what will separate PS3 from the rest of mediocre multiplatform Jrpgs.
Legend of Dragoon 2, where is the info on that game.. I really liked the first one.
I did not know that they were currently developing LOD: 2. I thought that was just a rumor started by hopeful gamers...
Okay so I haven't lost my mind.... because I would have been really excited to hear about a release of the game that is from a reliable source. Appreciate the info.
Just don't get your hopes up. Everything is a rumor until proven otherwise. Dark Cloud on the PS3 would be terrific though.
There is a LOD2 petition going on right now, we aren't allowed to post petition links so go ahead and google it, we already signed it.
TGS is going to be insane!!!!!!!!
that originally made me want to get a ps3
Good to hear something about this game. I hope the year of silence has been well spent working hard on the game to be the best it can be. Perhaps we'll hear of it, or better yet, see Level-5's RPG in action at TGS or sooner.
I expect this game to be at the Tokyo Game Show (it better be) because it's been ages since I've heard anything new about the game.
Weren't there like 3 games developed exclusively for the PS3 by some 3rd party Japanese studio? I forgot the name of the studio but the screens were looking good. I'm hoping they show those games at TGS as well.
no RPG's huh 360 boys? this is one RPG that will really count- it's from Level-5 @Chuck Norris in terms of quality yes... but im afraid that PS2 exclusives just don't get the attention they deserve these days
Giant blade in xbot faces.
The battle for RPG suppremacy this year is between Fallout 3 and Persona 4.
..you´re right. there were 3 projects..dont remember these games. also screenshots from thes games were released!! S. for my English!!
Yeah, I remember seeing them here on N4G. I've tried searching, couldn't find it. I just want to see more of it at TGS and find out how far it has progressed or whether it was canned.
New studios is called CELLIUS http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Ken Kutaragi was announced as the Chairman of Cellius And here are screans http://www.diggingtheweb.co... //////////// All 3 games look like Japanese version of Heavy rain, i mean gameplay might be similar.
Thanks! I remembered it being called cell something. Bubbles up.
Skies of Arcadia 2, Dragon Quest 9, Grandia 4 Extreme, and Legend of Dragoon 2 all confirmed. Cause I said so.
DQ9 = DS. It's been confirmed, not just because you said so :P http://ds.ign.com/objects/8...
Skies of Arcadia 2 would be a very nice treat.
hmm. are we sure it wasn't there already? I could have sworn it's been there since forever. I could be wrong.
I agree with you...that "Awakening soon" is there since last update (Oct, 2007) There is some news leak from Japan biggest discussing website 2ch said the pre-order of WKC begin at Sept. and there is a sub-title for the game, which make it feel like a series. But nothing is offical
You're not, I've been to the Level-5 site a bunch of times, and that has been there for some time. Either way, anyone who hasn't been to the official site should have a look at the concept art. http://www.level5.co.jp/pro...
Come on... give us WKC soon on the states. We need more RPG A-SAP!
It better be good. I'm dying for some cool RPG.
Hopefully we see something at TGS. One of my most anticipated jrpg games. This and a showing of team ico's new project would bring down the building at TGS.
This is the most anticipated RPG, outside of the FF series. And for good reason.
i know i'm gonna get some disagrees on this, but i'm actually waiting on WKC a little more than i am FFXIII, but i'm a sucker for new IP, so that's probably why. between Rogue Galaxy, DQVIII, Dark Cloud 1 and 2, Level-5 have established themselves as a premier jrpg developer. here's to hoping that a firm US release date is announced soon, and more is shown at TGS. god knows the PS3 needs some solid jrpgs (Enchanted Arms don't count), and WKC could turn out to be the best this generation has seen so far.
Level 5 has never let me down. I liked the Dark Clouds and loved Rogue Galaxy. Dragon's Quest 8 got me back into JRPGs after my interest had waned a little (one of my favorite PS2 games). WKS should be awesome. I wish they went a little more stylized instead of somewhat generic Infinite Undiscovery look but oh well...(still the menus and presentation look better than IU)
Suikoden 3-5 were all made by level 5 anf were among the best RPGs on the platform and sold quite well, Level 5 is just the kind of RPG company you want developing under your platform. from Dark Cloud to dragon quest to suikoden to, Jean de arc and countless other games, they are just amazing they are the ones that will; probably be the next gen prolific RPG developer. Watch and learn Tri-Ace, this is how you do an RPG. also a few months ago i believe just before Playstation day SCEA had a power point for their fiscal year earnings and showed what they expected by the end of 08 and the titles, along with the reveal that the Video store was launching. among the titles, They showed important games for fiscal year 2008 and among them were motorstorm, Killzone 2 resistance 2 LBP, White Knight Story and Afrika. and if they showed that for fiscal year as important titles then my guess is, WKS will release here in the states in March 09 before the fiscal year 08 ends for Sony which means a big reveal for the game in TGS is happening and it's gonna be awesome. bring on Team ico's next project and WKS
yeah. i kinda agree with you on the artistic approach, but i don't think it'll be as bad as IU. i'm really interested to see how Level-5 portray this whole size and scope angle they're going after. that one pic/vid i saw of the tortoise with the town on his back was pretty cool; kinda put me in the mind of Cronos in God of War, when he was crawling around with the temple on his back. pretty epic feeling. i also think it's pretty cool that WKC offers character customization, which i believe is a first for a jrpg. hopefully they reveal more about the story at TGS, or sooner.
you do know that Suikoden started on ps1 and it wasn't made by Level-5 at all right? RIGHT?
I don't think Level 5 had anything to do with the Suikoden series, it's an internal Konami team which used to be lead by Suikoden 2 director Yoshitaka Murayama but after a while of work on Suikoden 3 he left and Noritada Matsukawa took over as Senior Director and I think (I'm not sure) he continued working on Suikoden 4 and 5.
@Sevir04 Level 5 didn't make Suikoden it was Konami from the first to the fifth. Level 5 have made these games http://www.gamefaqs.com/fea...
I hope they show something at TGS08 plus a final release date. This game looked fantastic back when shown at TGS07
TURTLE CITY FTW!
