I always wanted to try this game but I am still waiting for the first game to reach $20 but know I will wait for this game to price drop since it includes part 1 & 2.

Even if this game is average I'll be getting it because it comes with the first game.
Edit: The article says the NA and EU share servers so we can play together. :)

Most reviewers gave it a bad score, because the story is bad (which it is..its like a horrible anime version of mario or zelda..or any "save the princess game").

The online is what really make this game though. The game has forums, city hubs, 4-player quest. It seems like a MMO. Even though I do believe the story is bad, the multi-player makes up for it. In WKC 2 the combat system has been updated to be faster which is awesome! We also get to make our own knights!!

WildArmed4787d ago

Hah! I knew it. I saw you once on WKC when doing Miner Problem II a looong time ago.
I figured I'd seen you on n4g before :D

And yes, the reviews are too focused on SP.
I don't think it's fair.
When FPS-franchises focal point has become MP, they forgive a bad campaign.
But apparently, it doesn't apply for JRPGs.
If the MP is he focal point of WKC, shouldn't it be given a decent change by the reviewers?
most reviewers for WKC didn't get pasted GR 6 before writing their review, which is quite pathetic.

That must have been looong ago lol. Since my last PS3 YLODed on me I have to play the online again, which I don't mind.....but as I said before..GOD I HATE STORY.

add meh on WKC!

radphil4787d ago

@-X-

Correction: It's now 6 players in WKC2

WildArmed4787d ago

Haha, will do.
Yeah, it was a looong time ago.. When I was Gr13 i think.
.. I wanna say first half of 2010.

felonycarclub4787d ago

Xenoblade X felt like Avatar as a game visually. The art in that series is amazing.

This is turning out to be Sony's very own E3 show for the holidays!

Merry Christmas!

@pedrof93

Most likely, yes. WKC was a PS3 exclusive.

pedrof933532d ago

Is white knight 2 a ps4 exclusive then ?

breakpad3532d ago

i hope for a localized Yokai Watch for Vita it seems very interesting and 3 milion Japan consumers are not idiots that bought the game instantly

WildArmed3532d ago

@pedro

WKC2 came out on PS3 as well.

The servers for both games are down now unf. I really wish we see a HD collection of the game. It was one of my most memorable gaming experience from last gen.

I had about 1000 hours into WKC, and 600 hours when they took the servers down in WKC2.

Findingcrybabies3532d ago

I had these games in a backlog for a while, I was very sad to learn that one of the biggest draws to me (MP/online component) had been cancelled.

Fun games, but you need to be careful of how long they expect to support their titles, it seems....not...long.

Minimox163532d ago

Yeah, Im lucky cuz got the platinum of both WKC before that (too many hours lol )

@jspsc123
Im with you bro ! MAG!

nX3532d ago

^MAG was next-gen stuff man, really miss that game.

guitarded773532d ago

I would take a White Knight Collection for the PS4 and a new game from Level 5 in the chute. As long as they keep servers up for awhile. I think they prematurely shut down servers for WKC on PS3. I know everyone is gonna be crying "Dark Cloud", but I'd prefer a new IP... WKC was originally supposed to be a trilogy, so there is no telling.

WildArmed3532d ago

I understand why they shut off WKC, but I was still playing WKC2 weekly when they shut of fWKC2.

I'm hoping we do see a PS4 HD collection.

elazz3532d ago

These games didn't get high ratings but for some reason I always found the series intriguing? And both games sold well. Maybe they'll make a new game in the series with an updated part 1 and 2

spence524903532d ago

I still have my copy of WKC2. One of the most frustrating games I have ever played. Great though.

gangsta_red3532d ago

White Knight Chronicles was not the best game and got ripped apart by the critics.

Level-5 should make a sequel to the excellent Rogue Galaxy game for PS2. I loved that game!

kratos1233532d ago

Wow people disagreed with that statement.
Man I miss rogue galaxy :-(. It was such a amazing games, all those fantastic characters. I loved all my time with it.

Xof3531d ago

It didn't help that it was one of the first high-prifile bullshot games last gen.

And what was weird about it was not only were those pre-release visuals much better than the final game, so was the UI and combat. And then there was all the DLC-whoring--like charging players to edit their avatars.
