Kusuda Yoshiaki confirmed today via Twitter that the White Knight Chronicles series on the PlayStation 3 will end on the second game.
It was said to be a trilogy so it should. Kinda dumb to back out now
Trilogy instead for Dark Cloud series?
the first one is average. I hope the second game will be a lot better.
maybe poor sales affected it?
That may be true. I don't think the first one sold well outside of Japan.
WKC was really generic in story and gameplay was ok... I rather have them make Rogue Galaxy 2 or DC3 or A new JRPG thats takes us in a new era of rpgs...
I think they want to focus their attention now on making Dark Cloud 3 with coop.
what made you think that? in fact what's making anyone think they are even working on dark cloud 3 im not saying they can't be im saying there is no indication whatsoever that would make people think they are working on DC3 im guessing they aren't working on a trilogy because the game hasn't been received well
Because Dark Cloud 3 is requested by everyone. Because Dark Cloud franchise is quite received by the media. I mean really, what made you ask this question? That should be the one you're asking to yourself.
just because something is well received and requested doesn't mean it will be made *points to megeman legends 3* there are soo many other games that were well received and requested yet no sequels were ever made
qface64, it has been heavily rumored by many that they are working on Dark Cloud 3. This is a blessing if it's true. I would prefer DC3 over WKC.
gamelova, rumored != confirmed
who said games needed a trilogy anyway
I wouldn't be surprised if Dark Cloud 3 will be announced at E3 or more likely TGS. I have to play the first WKC it was released too close to FF XIII.
This screams speculation of dark cloud 3. Man, We are gonna see so many "Dark cloud 3 announcement soon?" articles
thank zeus for this.. this series is such a waste of a promising IP. i hope level 5 never returns for this garbage. bring on dark cloud level 5.
That was one of my favorite games last gen and I'd love to see it on PS3.
I still prefer Dark Cloud 3 over rogue galaxy any day
I bet my nuts that every person bashing the game haven't even played it because WKC was amazing! Now we the fans will end up with either a rushed or incomplete story thanks to the sheeps that fallow reviews like religion.
I'd have to agree. Also I'm against the masses in their need for a Dark Cloud 3, since I wasn't fond of the first two. If this news is true, then that really sucks. I hate rushed stories, regardless of the fact that I spend most of my time online. I wonder if the people whining about wanting Dark Cloud 3 realize that the biggest draw of the Dark Cloud is a HUGE part of WKC online, or if they simply prefer to have gamimg mags/sites do their thinking for them? Guess we'll never know.
don't worry they are just drak cloud fans that's can't play anything else ..because dark cloud was amazing ect ect They actually never gave WKC a chance. Those who played WKC online know that the game is awesome ..
they should have made jean de arc 2. Or atleast transition this game into it, even if they have to mess up wkc story.
"no trilogy is good." um...GoW?
I guess that makes it more like A White Knight Chronicle.
The reviews dont get the game
what on earth does this mean the series won't be concluded i hope they don't leave it on a cliffhange i loved this game, thanks to all the haters thanks alot:(:(
pretty sure its heading for an mmo lifecycle.
Never cared for the story anyways.My 300+ hour online file is where i have my fun :)
I think they just took everything from whiteknight chroicles 3 and put it into white knight chronicals 2. I alsoheard wK2 has wk1 in it as well.
thats good because its graphics looks like psp
it's nice to see a developer not try and stretch the story out JUST so they can say, "yeah, we made a trilogy." as much as i like the game, Mass Effect 2 feels like a filler story. it doesn't feel nearly as tied to the main story of the first game (the reapers), and it felt like it was just filler until the third one wraps things up. honestly, ME2 could have been an expansion pack like Dragon Age: Awakening. but Bioware (and EA, i'm sure), would much rather get as much money from the franchise as they can. can't say there's anything wrong with that; business is business, but i DID spend $64 on Mass Effect 2, and me and my wife BOTH were very disappointed with it as a whole. the improvements were welcome (the better combat), but making it a straight up 3PS, and removing many of the RPG features REALLY irked me. the RPG elements, and the fact that ME1 felt like KOTOR is why i was pumped about part 3. i have high hopes for part 3 though. sorry about the off topic. anyway, WKC2 is on my most wanted list, that's for sure, but i'm hoping this just means that Level 5 is wrapping up WKC so they can move on to Dark Cloud 3. they make genuinely FUN games, that NEVER take themselves to seriously, and even when, graphically, they can't compare to the top dogs, the game play is always rock solid. WKC1 had it's issues, but they NEVER overshadowed the genuine fun that the game play had. i was addicted to leveling up, creating new combos, building up my town. i took a break for a bit, but i plan on going back to it once i get my wife her PS3 and a copy for her, so we can play together and level up our Guild Rank so we can get the good shit. WKC2 is looking solid, and if they improve the little things that were inconvenient about the first, it'll be a great RPG.
It really doesn't matter what Level 5 decides to make I will be there to buy it. I really enjoy pretty much every game they put out.
Like WKC generic games
The game didn't gather enough momentum and to be blatantly honest, its the art style. It doesn't have enough Zest to it. Take a game like Guild Wars. They have INCREDIBLE artists and INCREDIBLE art direction as well as music. If I were sony i'd just aquire arena net, straight up. They are a fantastically talented group of people. Having a Free to play MMO in Sony's pocket would really round out their portfolio, espeically Guildwars, which is story-driven.
ummm i was under the impression the mmo aspect of the sequel is pretty well rounded out so of course there wont be a sequel now that its a fully fledged mmo client.
