CSM writes: "If you've played many Japanese role-playing games before, you'll likely recognize the plot of White Knight Chronicles right away. A sad princess who has gone silent for a decade after witnessing the death of her mother is kidnapped by malicious forces just as she is being formally introduced to the people of her kingdom. Players take control of a small band of heroes (including one completely customizable protagonist and another that can transform into a giant knight) that embarks on a mission to rescue her. The quest plays out as a series of smaller adventures that have you marching through complex dungeons, battling monsters, and slowly upgrading your heroes' skills and gear. Outside the main quest, players can embark on bonus missions with their customized avatar, venturing alone or joining up with a handful of players online."
