Heh, well some of the screens are pre-rendered CG, I believe. There was a bit of it in the trailers. Still looked awesome though.

A couple of character creation videos.

Trying to recreate some Japanese model. Their reactions are hilarious.

A time-lapse video. This one's a little old but I hadn't seen it before.

Even though I don't understand what they are saying, I also thought it was hilarious. They seem to get too excited about that character creation matching that girl I guess. Totally different culture and mindset for that kind of stuff.

Yeah, well, I guess you need some release in a culture where you jump off high buildings when you don't get into your college of choice.

In any event, when is the game getting released in the States?

XBOX Live: Wagmman
PSN: Wagg
BFBC2: Wagman
Steam: Wag

My Second Life character looks and acts exactly like me except he can fly.

So far there has been no date given for a release outside of Japan, IIRC.

Some more (imported) news on WKC.... 100+ hours of gameplay and online co-op confirmed?

Quote:


-Gameplay 100hr;
A very large scale RPG in addition to the infinite amount of time you can play with friends and partners.

-Attractive casting and immense story.
The thrill of an RPG has been refined with the experience and know-how gained by Level-5 over the years.

-Next-gen quality graphic power
Super graphic scenes output at FullHD 1080p

-Big and small characters fighting alongside each other to create a chaotic and dynamic battle
With the protagonist being able to transform into the White Knight, dynamic battles with both large and small characters can be created. A direct feel battle system makes unnecessary, any complicated controls, and makes you feel as though you're part of the battle.

-Embarking on an adventure and fighting alongside friends/partners.
Unending infinite gameplay is also included. Via PSN, embark on adventures with friends.

Woah, that would fill that "new RPG element" bill they've been hyping.

Too bad they didnt come out with this "genre first element" before fable II at E3...

Funny how Im completely hyped about seamless online interaction for WKS but I wrote it off as lame when I saw it for Fable...does that make me a fanboy?

If I had both systems, then I'd say "yes."

Since I don't have the Xbox360, and I don't really pay attention to games that aren't multiplatform on the Xbox360, I'm allowed to be stoked.

A) WKC has 4-player co-op, not merely 2-player like FII

B) Fable II won't even have any online co-op at launch since it doesn't work yet

C) Phantasy Star Online started the co-op action-RPG craze on consoles... eons before FI was conceived, let alone FII... and the sub-genre has been revitalized in Japan by the Monster Hunter series

D) This is a PS3 forum; take the off-topic nonsense to the other side of the pond

This game looks awesome! I heard about it a while ago but only recently watched videos. I'm a long time Final Fantasy fan who isn't too pleased with the look of FFXIII. White Knight looks like the type of game I wanted FFXIII to be. The FMVs blew me away. I can't wait to see it on my TV in 1080p! I just hope the gameplay is solid..

Powerpoint presentation at TCG.

Here's the images:

Originally Posted by kotaku View Post

The producer of upcoming PS3 exclusive White Knight Chronicles Kentaro Motomura gave rundown of the game complete with Powerpoint. Here's that in a duckpress: The game unfolds as a ceremony is being held in The Kingdom of Balandor to celebrate princess Cisna's Coming-of-Age. A wizard ruins the party looking for, as the Powerpoint tells it, "the incredible power of 'knight'." Leonard, the hero, protects the princess and hides in an underground cellar where he finds a set out armor that turns him into The White Knight.

Characters include The White Knight, The Black Knight and the newly announced Dragon Knight.

Battle-wise, it's possible to freely register the commands into the function palettes that allow players to create and name your own combinations. Players can also create in-game alter egos that join the game as the main character's companion. Other sides confirmed the MO quest which was leaked in Famitsu.

There was a Q&A afterwards in which a room full of journalists could ask Motomura questions. Just because questions were asked that doesn't mean they were answered.

Question: For online text chat, how will that work for different languages? Will different regions play on different servers?
Answer: "We cannot disclose how we will separate the language barrier in the online mode."

Question: Is there going to be voice chat?
Answer: "We cannot answer at this time."

Question: Will there be mini-games style play that Level 5 is famous for?
Answer: "We cannot answer at this time."

Good thing there was a press conference. Game looks nice, though.

I can't wait to make my own combos and give them crazy Japanese names like: "Ultimate Lightning Sunbeam Dragon Blender Dark Combo FLASH!"

It will probably come out before FF13. I don't really like the look or the frogs. And where's the armpit hair? You can't shave it that cleanly. I need the sweat and hair for realism.

Hopefully the story won't be cheesy. JRPGs may have the drama, but their underlying absurdities make up most of the weight.

i think this game is just to be good to be true.

if the options they include in this game are really true. it could be 1 of the best ever.

1080p, multiplayer rpg. 100+ hours gameplay. it all sound to good to be true in my book.

First review from the latest Famitsu. So so scores: 7/7/8/7

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=345755
Quote:


--lots of optional content
--big boss battles
--simplistic combat
--customizable combos
--is basically like every other Level 5 RPG. Sadness befalls the land.
--Online has chat issues and a reviewer "hopes it will be patched in the future"

Looks like people are ignoring Famitsu on this title... it's sold out in Japan and is said to become the best selling next gen RPG released for any system. The servers are overloaded though, causing problems with people trying to play. Supposedly it's all to be worked out eventually, but it's crazy how companies let their servers get hammered when they know a big crowd is coming.

Here are some new vids to look at :

Exploring the local town area / early fighting
Countryside co-op fighting

So does this title have an English sub-titles/Audio at all? I would love to import it if it has some English as I wouldn't be able to understand anything otherwise.

Thanks and have a good day!

It was confirmed that a U.S. release is coming, but no date was given as to when. They are also deciding if we'll be able to play Japanese players when online.
