We have the video in HD as well. Uploading now.
And the voice work seems like it's coming along nicely. You ever watch some trailers that give you chills? That's what it's like for me when I see WKC media. Very, very excited about this game.
This game is going to be a great RPG. The online has shades of Monster Hunter, which is a plus. I really am hoping for holiday release.
I've seen quite a few things you have done with your site and information you have made available to people. This by far has captured much of my attention in anticipation for this title to reach the shores of North America. You sir deserve a bubble :)
@ Nuri, Thank you. :) I bubbled you back.
Man i use his site everyday
@Sev: Thanks :) That trailer has got me pumped and excited for E3.
sev you're awesome
Bubbles This is a Great Game from a Great dev (LEVEL 5) Edit: sorry Sev i cant give you Bubbles, cause i gave you one already for the PS3Slim Rumor article^^
I can honestly say sev, you and your site are one of the best contributers to N4G. GG
Wheres the HD 1?
Hey im bookmarking your site....You seem to be getting alot of exlcuisves recently...Keep it up !
Cant wait to see what the online is like.
Guys, I work on PlayStation LifeStyle with Sev - there are so many things the site has coming. This momentum isn't stopping soon. PS: WKC!
i just hope that I can swtich to original japanese voice acting + subtitles...

Ahhh Sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!! love voice finally english lol
I'm really excited for this game. Loved Rogue Galaxy.
Rogue Galaxy was a lot of fun. I can’t wait for WKC, as Level-5 make great games.
Dark Cloud 2 > Rogue Galaxy. In my humble opinion, anyway.
Awesome! I'm obsessed with this game, as it is. It's so addictive. I would like to play it in English, but I hope that they retain the Japanese voice-overs and let us play it with subtitles, because Leonard's voice sounded really awful there, and other than the narrator it didn't seem like the dubbed acting held a candle to the Japanese voices. Also, I hope they change the trophies, because I've got over 40 hours into the Japanese version and I've only unlocked 4 bronze trophies so far. The trophies in this game are literally insane. If you thought 10,000 kills for a single gold trophy in Resistance 2 was bad, then you won't like the trophies in this game. Each one of the gold trophies in this game (and I think there are 7, maybe 8 of them) will take far longer to get than that trophy in Resistance 2.
Yeah, in a recent developer interview on the PSBlog the guy said he’d be very surprised if many people were able to get the platinum. I look forward to the challenge.
Unfortunately for the trophies in this game, it isn't much of a "challenge" so much as a GRIND. I mean, I wouldn't call it challenging to have 10,000,000 gold in my wallet at once, or to kill 10,000 enemies... it's just something requires you to go out there and grind a ridiculous amount of hours away until it's done. These are the sort of annoying trophies that are just *a matter of time* ... but that doesn't mean the game isn't ridiculously fun. I love the game. I just don't have enough time to ever dream of getting most of the trophies.
This actually looks just as interesting as FFXIII. The game's definitely come a long way from that old TGS demo in what, 2007? Mad props to Sev for getting this up.
I love you Sev1512, in a manly way, for giving us this amazing trailer. WKC >>>>>>>&g t;>> all JRPG release so far this generation.
I too share a manly love for you, that was an awesome trailer.
Man-love all around. Spread the Man-love.
Excellent Voice acting going on. Anything about EU release? anything at all, please say there is :(
I played the Japanese version and did find some issues such as unpolished UI, unbalanced weapon classes... etc. However, Level 5 has took survey on existing users and virtually all major complaints are patched. Now it's so much better from the beginning. Actually it's like a different game now compared to the original :) For western release, it sure will be the newest, polished version. I really hope you guys enjoy this goodie.
pretty kool trailer
can't wait for this,,, wonder what the "haters " will say...
I am can't wait for this game. In fact this is my most wanted game for the past 2 years. Does that answer your question? :)
I also think that video doesn't do justice to the graphics (looks very grainy - but do see that you said you have an HD version coming). But, Level-5 earned my respect with Rogue Galaxy and I'll see for myself how well this game plays out once it gets here.
Sweetness, been waiting for this for a long time now, hopefully we don't have to wait much longer. Hopefully, this does well in NA/EU to show devs. that we do care about RPGs.
AWESOME! Can’t wait to hear more about this game at E3. They better announce a release date, and it better be sometime soon. Thanks for posting this.
look unbelievably fantastic i can't wait for this game.
urgh in this voices...... i prefer the japanese voices imo. have option for change the voices for jap?
OMG! can't wait... :D
Definitely buying this one.
Oh man, Sony really needs to acquire this studio as a 1st party developer.
Yeah, I agree. Imagine what their next rpg would look like....*o*
love it. im soooooooo excited for this. i hope it comes to europe soon. i will buy this first day. soooo coooool. cant wait.
Why not just import the US version ?
The game looks ok. Call me a graphics whore though but after all the hype Ive heard for this game I have to say the graphics arnt great. And its not the art style, its the graphics. Hopefully though what it lacks there it'll have in storyline and length...
At least SOMEBODY sees what I'm seeing.....which isn't much. :/
Sony Rulz, while I will agree the graphics aren't exactly next gen...I don't see how this affects gameplay? As long as the game plays good and it's a great rpg, that's what matters for some people who are buying it.
To JRPG's gamers such as myself, graphic don't mean sh!t. It all about gameplay and story.
Of course, you have to understand it's Level-5's first foray onto the PS3 and they're not that big of a developer as it is. It's also a game that was released last year and has an online component. I can forgive the lack of graphics if it's still a good game like Rogue Galaxy.
Go onto gametrailers.com and find more videos.
I cant wait for this game i need another rpg for my ps3 and it looks like ff13 wont arrive to the us until about 2013.
is this more a single player game with some added multiplayer options, or a multiplayer based game that allows for single player?
Kinda both. It is mostly a single player game but has an online option that is better than Monster Hunter. You basically do quests online that can last up to an hour with three of your friends. What every loot and experience you collected online, you can use in the single player.
yeah i agree with u the graphics arent that great.... but i believe in level 5 in terms of gameplay, they never dissapoint me with games like layton, Dark cloud, and rogue galaxy day one buy
i imagine you would like anything level 5, I personally only really liked Dragon Quest 8 so far from them. I'm still interested in this game though.
And that comes from a huge RPG gamer, Demon Soul is a far better game That is why it scored so low in Famitsu, lower than almost all next gen JRPGs so far
Ill still try this game, worst that can happen is that I wont like it. So far the only level 5 game I actually enjoyed was dragon quest 8.
TBH, I really don't think that visually WKC is as stunning as it could have been. It lacks a lot of detail for me-hair, vegetation etc all looks slightly blocky and unresponsive. I know that the artstyle can limit this kind of thing and it's by no means a deal breaker as Fable and Fable2 have already proven on 360 but it doesn't look as crisp as FF13 to my eyes. I also know that they weren't really aiming to amaze with the gfx for this game and that loads went into doing the online functions(which look quality btw)so we shouldn't get too hung up on a few visual shortcomings-it's just that it would have been great to see how far they could push this. Whatever, I'll be getting it day one in the UK as I think as a whole the game sounds amazingly good and I like the looks of the combat I just don't get bowled over by the way it looks-I think it just seems a little empty and static compared to some of the other games this gen. EDIT:@labwarrior-yes, but I read a translation of the review and, to be fair, you could level muc of the criticisms at most games in the genre plus they really didn't like the online which has got better write ups elsewhere. Also, in jrpgs, as you will no doubt know better than me, you can usually replace "generic" with"trad" and people will still flock ro play in the fashion they largely know and love-it isn't a genre where innovation is at a premium by and large and I felt they(Famitsu) ragged on it for something you could level at 99% of jrpgs. That said I'm more up for DS as well but will get both-and I still expect PS3 to eventually get a better version with more on the disc(because of the glitches with the 360 game plus the wait)of SO4 as more fans of the series worldwide will have bought a PS3, so I'll look forward to that 'til I'm certain/it's confirmed that it's not coming(then I guess I'll pick it up cheap for 360!).
I just got the chills while watching this vid. Damn I cant wait for this game anymore. Im gonna freak out if I dont get my hands on it soon.
Everyone talking about graphics in here. Oh man if graphics matter that much I take it some of you could not bare playing Disgaea or the upcoming Cross Edge. (which is already preordered) Graphics look fine. (I believe its in 1080P) So yeah get off the graphics train and look forward to an awesome adventure online and off with friends and without..
If you like RPG's you gotta be pumped for WKC.
reviews aren't too great...i dunno...
This game looks like a PS2 game, wtf is Level 5 thinkin? After seeing K2, Uncharted 2, inFamous, and even older titles such as Uncharted.... WHY DOES THIS GAME LOOK SO DAMN BAD?
I am really looking forward to this game. Hopefully they are already developing the next Dark Cloud!
Okay why the graphic talk? If you compare all the Jrpgs out so far which do you think has the best graphics? Its nobody's fault they released the game much later than most rpgs this gen. but unlike most rpgs so far they are fixing the game so it can be of best quality. Ya gotta be idiots to say FF13 looks better. duh it does. Its not een out yet which is giving Square about 2 years extra of development. Of course the graphics are gonna be better. Plus if you compare the amount of devs in Square and the amount in Level 5 you can see how they did not have the amount of time and people needed to make the graphics like the first TGS 07 trailer. Square has over 3000 devs while Level 5 has about 150...Level 5 is busy making lots of quality games while Square makes one quality game every 5 years... Level 5 is busy working on Ushiro, Dark Cloud(rumored), Car Board Senki, Another story, DQ9, sequel to that soccer rpg, Professor Layton franchise. To be a great game designer/developer you have to focuse on a wide array of quality games unlike Square. And comparing it to games like KZ2 and Uncharted is stupid. Oh yay I beat the game in 6 hours. Makng actual animations instead of mostly shooting is also harder. One thing that WKC has with graphics is that its looks alive. Moving trees and grass with serene lakes. Most rpgs do not even do that today. WKC has creatable character, many types of armor that affects your appearence. Plus many recent play testers says the game is beautiful. you should know by now that vids do not give games justice. KZ2 looks like trash in screens and vids..while it looks amazing when you see it with your eyes. WKC is still the best looking JRPG this gen. SO4 used crappy blinding lighting to try to cover the bad graphics. (try lowering the brightess and you will see what I mean) I do wish the characters were a bit better for the main characters, but I guess since you can journey with your created character they do not want you to be like "my created character looks worse than the Main character". They kept the graphic quality just about even for created and non created characters. This game is gonna be great I know it. Stop complaining that its slow. Its a turn baed rpg in real time...thats all. LO was slow but ya still enjoyed it right? ok i'm done
That last scene looks too Power Rangerish...
