Woot. Great news.

It's on the article.

how many did the first one sell on day one?

Forbidden_Darkness2878d ago

So it did worse, hmmmm. Well i didn't enjoy the first one (didnt even play that much) so im not looking forward to this one.


Can't believe IGN gave the first game a 5.1 and constantly call it "terrible" on their podcasts.

Excellent sales for a Spring game. It will probably do over 200K for the week.

And IGN's review was a complete waste of time, seeing as they never played the online component. Anyone who has actually plumbed the game will tell you that the offline takes maybe 30 hours whereas the online can go for hundreds (570ish for me). You can't review an MMO on the day the servers launch. The game is at least a 6-7, much higher if you're in it for the multi-player or enjoy JRPGs.

Labwarrior must be asleep under his bridge still, he hasn't found this thread yet. Knightdarkbox is here though. Wouldn't be a WKC 1/2 thread without them!

Its sad to see that this RPG did not achieve the high expectations. The fake video of 2006 was very promising...( the 1 game)

I hope Level 5 sees this and gets their act together. I guess I'm just going to skip this game. Too many reviews are saying its very bland.

ThanatosDMC2878d ago

That fake video was amazing... i wish it looked like that. Sadly i cant find it on youtube anymore by itself. It always has some crappy background music taking up all the sound.

FFXI1012877d ago

Yeah? I could say the same on most RPGs released on 360.

"Too many reviews are saying its very bland" Right, keep trolling, there's reason why you only got one bubble.

PirosThe4th2877d ago (Edited 2877d ago )

The gameplay from the video was scrapped... I guess because it wouldn't work as well with bigger and massive enemies.
Maybe they will make another one with that gameplay if this one does well and people ask for it.

Edit: double post, weird.

Thepro3182878d ago

time based rpg get boring DEMONS SOULS didn't have that

Veneno2877d ago

actually it did but it was called the stamina stat.

beardpapa2878d ago

thought this would sell better than the first one considering it has the first game on disc too doesn't it ? Wouldn't 2 games in 1 attract newcomers to the series?

Davoh2878d ago

Great news indeed, now just need it to release over here and we'll be sorted

FFXI1012877d ago

I agree with you.

I, myself has about 400+hours in it and I'm only at GR12. To reach GR15 will probably takes me forever or even after the WKC2 released :(

Let's hope it gets shipped out to other countries soon!

Good to see it did well.

Spenok2877d ago

Yeah, i don't want to have to wait 2 years for this to hit American shores. I loved the first one.

xztence2878d ago (Edited 2878d ago )

That's great although i'm STILL disappointed they didn't manage to match the gameplay of the game to the first trailer they showed a few years ago and the sequel doesn't seem to match it either. I think that sort of gameplay is possible if they put the effort needed.
I hope Level-5 steps up their game and outdo themselves in the future.
I'm still buying the game to support JRPG devs.

PirosThe4th2878d ago

well... the gameplay in that trailer seems to me too western... but rather innovative. I think they had to change it because they found it rather boring or something. It reminds me of the last remnant with more prompts and actions to do.
I didnt buy the first but I am sure I will buy WKC 2...
The trailer seems to have really awesome HDR lighting and other stuff... I said that is possible in ps3, even GOW3 looks better... oh well... maybe the enxt big game its goign to be like that...
Ps3 still young...

Chuk_Chuk2878d ago

Didn't know this was out. Reviews look decent so i may get the second one.

Lumbo2878d ago

Hopefully it does not take more than a year to ship in the west this time. I really liked the first one, and the online mode is great, no matter what the trolls claim.
