Level 5 Talks White Knight Story

Level 5 president Akihiro Hino has sat down with Famitsu to talk about his company's highly anticipated PlayStation 3 debut, Shirokishi Monogatari (White Knight Story). The game's story will center around the relationship between the protagonist and the princess. Early in the game, the protagonist comes to the princess' rescue and from there on they begin to develop a close relationship.

The only problem I see with the upcoming surge of PS3 games is a lack in the RPG department, perhaps focusing on quality rather than quantity ;) From the looks of it White Knight will be exceptional.

well, Sony never really had any good RPGs in any of their launch years with any of their consoles in the past. It usually takes a full year or two when the RPG starts streaming in as RPGs usually takes longer for studios to develop. I don't even remember a PS1 rpg worth nothing in the early years till FFVII, PS2 had "summoner" the first year which was never too good. So, i'd say don't worry about those RPGs, they are coming.

There was Dark Cloud on the PS2, though. That was a launch title, I believe, and it was quite good. Heh, Level 5 developed it, so of course it would be. I enjoyed Summoner, too, but it doesn't compare to other RPGs.

Aye, I'm looking forward for the RPGs to stream out. If you recall the news story from some time ago, there is to be 15 RPGs to be released, both announced and unannounced titles. The 360 has about 7 announced at the moment, both WRPGs and JRPGs, so it's looking well on that front!

Is it me or are rpgs these days just an easy way to cash in? Haven't really played a good one since Oblivion and blue dragon didn't really impress me with that demo.

Edit: I have been playing rpgs since dragon warrior 1 and final fantasy 1 on the nes. I just have too admit after playing random battle rpgs for almost 20 years I'm getting quite sick of them.

I can only speak for myself, and chrono trigger just woke my rpg-vein from it's slumber. And it's a snes game.

I think whith the trackrecord of Level-5's history, this wont be a bad one for sure. Their imagination and spirit exceeds the ones in powerhouses like SE. Only Bioware may play in their league in my not so humble opinion.

[edit] Thank you lodest ninja ever. This is info worthy my attension :]
