Thanks to a dramatic trailer, White Knight Chronicles immediately became anticipated as the next triple-A Japanese RPG during the PS3's early days. A couple years and a forgettable release in Japan capped off with a disappointing review in Famitsu later, much of its shine is gone as it finally approaches a spring 2010 release in America. Much of WKC's initial appeal came from scenes in the trailer, where your character transformed into a majestic towering robot-knight in gleaming metallic armor. As 1UP learned when they got a chance to really get into the Japanese version, that's only part of the game. In addition to the traditional story mode, White Knight Chronicles offers a sort of learner's MMORPG for four player as well.
