All Articles: White Knight Chronicles II
It’s nearly 2012. Is there still any room in today’s modern gaming world – one filled with mobile games, plastic peripherals, and motion controllers – for a breathtaking and story-driven RPG? The answer has largely been a resounding “no,” but that doesn’t mean it’s too late for Level-5 to bring some of their fabled RPG magic to the table – does it? White Knight Chronicles II is a sequel to last year’s White Knight Chronicles – a series that attempts to take well-liked traits of RPGs and blend them into one big drink concoction. The end result is similar to mixing various flavors of icey slush drinks at the local gas station. You think, “This is gonna be the best drink ever!” It’s full of flavor and taste, but generally leaves a bad aftertaste and questionable stomach irritation by the time you’re through. (more…)
Welcome to another week of new games! This week EA Sports is lacing up their hockey skates, Kratos is coming at you in 3D and D3 Publisher has bundled together two RPGs for twice the fun. Also, the Bit.Trip series is getting collected in two separate compilations and the insane geniuses at Twisted Pixel are putting out a game starring an undead marionette bent on revenge.
- The ice skates belong to this year’s only hockey sim, NHL 12 (PS3, Xbox 360).
- Kratos will go 3D thanks to the stereoscopic 3D mode found in God of War: Origins Collection, a PS3 remake of his two PSP adventures.
- D3’s double RPG is White Knight Chronicles II, which also includes a free copy of the first White Knight Chronicles game.
- The Bit.Trip series will be coming to the 3DS as Bit.Trip Saga and the Wii as Bit.Trip Complete.
- Finally, Twisted Pixel’s The Gunstringer proves once again that the developers are a happily demented bunch.
Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
Can I keep him, Ma?
D3 Publisher had initially scheduled White Knight Chronicles II for a Summer 2011 release. But, as the Summer started, the game disappeared from upcoming release calendars.
Thankfully, D3’s Miki Takahashi rides to the rescue and has assured readers of the PlayStation.Blog that the game will be released this September. And in case you missed out on the first game, he also wanted to remind everyone that every copy of WKC2 will include a newly remastered edition of the original White Knight Chronicles.
That’s a lot of RPG for one package.
Ben 10 Galactic Racing is a kart game in the Ben 10 universe, featuring tracks on five planets and “four-player multiplayer mayhem.” Earth Defense Force: Insect Armaggedon brings giant insects and aliens to Earth once again, calling on the EDF to stop them. And White Knight Chronicles II is the long-awaited (at least, for Mike Gutierrez) sequel by Level-5 that is finally coming to America.
D3 to publish White Knight Chronicles II this Summer
D3 Publisher has swooped in and picked up the publishing rights to Level-5’s White Knight Chronicles II. Originally published by Sony in Japan, the PS3 RPG will be released this Summer in a special edition that also includes the original White Knight Chronicles.
According to D3, the sequel will include a single-player campaign, a “multiplayer co-op experience” and “new fan-requested features.”
That’s neat and all, but look, free game!
