White Knight Chronicles Unboxed

Sony and Level-5 will be launching White Knight Chronicles on the PS3 on February 2. Acting as Level-5's first RPG for the PS3, there is a lot of hype surrounding the title. White Knight Chronicles is, essentially, the first major RPG to land on the PS3 until Final Fantasy XIII releases on March 9.

Sony sent the retail build of the game and there some pictures of the casing, instruction book, and disc art for your enjoyment. (PS3, White Knight Chronicles)

This and FF13.....Are on my hit list
gamingisnotacrime  +   1538d ago
its funny
When i read something about FF 13 like " it does not have towns because it was too much work", i loss interest in FF 13

on the other hand WKC seems to be here to do justice for the RPG fans on the PS3 side
PS3 exclusive line up FTW!

@ below
you sir have a date with the gaming angels, great list!

Between this, ME2, and FFXIII (Yes, I'm still getting it), I'll be in rpg heaven 'til maybe summer hits

with a little intermission from Heavy Rain & GoWIII :)

i think you people have either forgotten or not heard of resonance of fate. that game is going to oooowwn!

But can't wait for this game as well xD

I'm skipping this game and FF13. Watch the gameplay vids in youtube and i couldnt stop thinking about power rangers or Ultraman Ace.

Watch White Knight vs Dragon. Combat is slow and laughable.

It's almost like this video: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

This is WKC online: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Sadly being in Europe I don't get my version of the game until the 26th. I just hope I have enough money for this and FF13. Because being a Final Fantasy fanboy White Knight is going to get the push if I don't :/
xTruthx  +   1538d ago
ThanatosDMC ignore those vids, did u ever see the demon soul's videos ? they looked real boring but when you start the game, you realize all those vids you had seen, where from the beginning of the game and that's y the vids always show a knight hitting with a sword only. You should just rent em and see. I recently got bayonetta and i really cant see how this game got 9's and 10's, personal opinion tho. But yeah the lack of towns in FF13 was really surprising, not gonna buy it now tho. Ill just rent it, i mean come on... free rpg games currently on pc even had towns, SE is really getting lazy

unless it's a true action rpg ( tales of for example ) rpg vids are boring ...

why ? because you want ..no you have to be IN the action to feel how the game is ...
jc48573  +   1539d ago
This is the reason why I don't
like getting the games earlier. Do you guys notice the punch holes in the bar code? I really don't know why they do that and I think is stupid.
Somnipotent  +   1538d ago
they do it so you can't resell it... they did that with demo copies of cds back in the day as well. the game disc is still in tact and playable.
Blaze929  +   1538d ago
It's just so that they make sure journalist aren't making money by re-selling something they get/got for free
skip2mylou  +   1538d ago
its so tht people dont get free things and then try to sell them back again to make a profit. they did tht with socom confrontations tht was bundled with the headset. the actual box wasnt punch holed but the game case was
jc48573  +   1538d ago
All i know that they ruined the art cover.
skip2mylou  +   1538d ago
ur stupid man just shut up. its not like your gonna get a free copy of WKC. its only for people who got the game for FREE SO THEY CANT RETURN IT TO A STORE AND SELL IT.
Drab  +   1538d ago
Finally!!!
This game is pure OwNaGe!....If EVERYONE buy this game unless u hate RPGs for some reason. Sony and Level-5 have been very good to consumer with this one. NAs get extra content including voice chat and the ablility to create your own town(Dark Cloud style). Plus FFXIII won't be out til March 9 hehehhe.
DrWan  +   1538d ago
They do that so you can't bring it back and resell it as a "retail" copy
I guess there is nothing stopping ppl from manually punching in the code if they have another one sitting on the shelf.
TheBand1t  +   1538d ago
Not only will this game have Towns, Square Enix...

But you can make your own in multiplayer.
Blaze929  +   1538d ago
with all do respect though, this game doesn't graphically hold up to FF13 so you can't really compare the two on how much work would need to be done/was done for towns.

EDIT:

@TheBand1t. I'm not saying SE is correct. I'm just saying comparing this game to FF13 is pretty stupid...

*sigh*, come on 9000 disagrees. My soul slowly fades away with each disagree ¬_¬

TheBand1t  +   1538d ago
Okay, then what of Mass Effect 2? That game had some nice graphics, and you can explore the frigging galaxy.

At least ME2 and WKC are doing something different.

EDIT: I know it's not going to be a graphical powerhouse of a game. Shoot, it's a 2008 game that we're just now getting. Still, wtf? SE had YEARS to get FFXIII going, and now it's half-baked.

Blaze929 , I completely agree
People act like this game doesn't look last gen with HD graphics or something. This game runs in 1080p because of how little polygon and texture work was involved. It is no graphical benchmark and FF13 completely blows his game out the water visually.

The cutscene in this game are really nice though but the graphics are like putting Dark Cloud one through an HD filter.

I'm getting this game (from amazon so it won't be arriving "day one") but not as any sort of FFXIII replacement that some of you seem to be hinting at.

My RPG list:
Star Ocean 4 (PS3 only owner)
Resonance of Fate
Neir (rpg ish?)
FFXIII
White Knight Chronicles

@thebandit
The friggin galaxy? You make it sound like every single planet has its own city just waiting to be explored. The majority of this friggin galaxy you speak of are numerous planets that can be scanned for resources, and that's it.

You know your stuff buddy.
Obama  +   1538d ago
Too many great games coming out this early year. AVP, BF2, WKC, GOW3, RE5 expansion. It pains me but I gotta catch them all.

"White Knight Chronicles is, essentially, the first major RPG to land on the PS3 until Final Fantasy XIII releases on March 9. "

demon's souls?
jc48573  +   1538d ago
I agree
that demon's souls is the first ps3 exclusive rpg title. Please do not say, "well, white knight chronicles is a jrpg."
camachoreloaded8806  +   1538d ago
well, white knight chronicles is a jrpg.
Obama  +   1538d ago
Valkyria Chronicles? Folklore? Disgaea3?
jc48573  +   1538d ago
oh man
I totally forgot about those games and I even own them too. Valkyria is more strategy based and it is a rather unique one, but it's also a first on the ps3. Disgaea 3 is a tactical rpg and it was the first as well. Folklore is actually one of those action based rpgs and yea it can also be considered as the first.
Blink_44  +   1538d ago
I love demon's souls
TwistedMetal  +   1538d ago
White knight chronicles and demon souls both have extensive online and 3 and 4 player co-op
That makes them the difinitive rpgs this gen as they also are 60+ hr rpgs. This is for the people crying about sp only games yet buyin ME2 wich is sp only and 15-20hrs long max. Its a tps so it should have online. resistance was 15+ hrs with online. If you bought ME2 I dont even want to here complaining about sp only games or calling Me2 Difinitive rpg when it has no online, is short game, and a TPS.
Voozi  +   1538d ago
Don't forget, Mass Effect 2 is also a dating sim
NoOoB101  +   1538d ago
Haha one of the big reason why I'm getting this game is for the town building haha, that and i beat dragon age and need another rpg to play =]
AnotherGamerUser  +   1538d ago
Buh buh but....
I thought it was too hard to program towns on an HD console. LMAO.

This and Last Story on the Wii are reasons I am ditching my flopbox.

hihosilver  +   1538d ago
I hope & pray

yojoe26  +   1538d ago
Okay all you people
sqawking about Final fantasy 13 not having towns and declaring the game and square enix as crap and "and lazy developer" need to get your heads on straight, take a deep breath, and calm down. You haven't played the game yet and neither have I. Withhold judgement until you can speak out of knowledge and not ignorance. The game looks great and for people to say SE is lazy here's a little tidbit for ya: THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS GAME FOR 5 YEARS!!!! How in the heck is THAT lazy? Lazy is putting out a game in one or two years with crappy graphics, terrible controls, story, etc. I agree though that White Knight Chronicles looks brilliant and I am glad there are towns. Let's just see what happens after these two great games release. Both look incredible for different reasons.

can wait to see how the co-op will work...should be good game
