Several online retailers, including Amazon.co.uk and ShopTo, are reporting that the European release of the much anticipated Level 5 game White Knight Chronicles is either February 26th or the week before. Previously just down as a Q1 2010 title, the medieval fantasy role-player from the developers of the Dark Cloud and Rogue Galaxy games has finally been given a locked down local release date from SCEE and we can’t wait to get our hands on the game that’s supposed to be the PS3’s first major RPG hit.
White Knight Chronicles will offer six different characters, highly detailed environments, a compelling storyline and dozens of online quests. The highly customisable player avatars will also have access to individual weapons and items, and the game is, by all accounts, rather good. Hopefully we’ll be able to get our hands on the game just before it launches (which appears to be around the same time as Heavy Rain) and if that’s the case we’ll be telling you just how good this one is. Stay tuned to TheSixthAxis for everything White Knight.
