RPG fans will be pleased to know that the prequel and sequel to White Knight Chronicles will be released for the PSP and PS3 outside of Japan. While the initial announcement on the PlayStation Blog didn’t mention a release window, it was stated in the comments section that both games are set to launch this May.
White Knight Chronicles 2 features new content and tons of improvements over the original game, including resigned battle mechanics and online support for up to six players. The popular Georama town customization tools will be making its return and will include even more options available to the player.
In Japan, White Knight Chronicles 2 came bundled with a version of the first game that included all the improvements made for the sequel. When asked if this would be the case in Europe, SCEE’s Ross Alexander left the following reply: “That would be telling…” While not exactly a confirmation, it does seem heavily implied that the upgraded first game will be included.
White Knight Chronicles: Origins, a PSP prequel developed by Matrix Corp., is set 10,000 years before the events of the first WKC. Like its PS3 brethren, Origins features a 30+ hour single player campaign and allows you to quest with friends online (supports up to four players). The PSP version also includes the ability to trade quests and avatars.
