White Knight Chronicles only recently made it out in the English speaking world. But it was a 2008 release in Japan, meaning the wait for the sequel has been a long one.
That wait is at long last coming to an end. Sony and developer Level-5 recently announced a summer time frame for the game in Japan and started opening up with story, character and gameplay details.
Fully titled White Knight Chronicles: Awakening of Light and Darkness, the sequel is set a year after the events of the original. Based off some early story details, the focus this time seems to be on the western Republic of Foria.
