White Knight Chronicles International Edition Coming to PS3 February 2, 2010

Cristian Cardona's Avatar + Posted by Cristian Cardona on Dec 04, 2009 // Associate Product Marketing Manager, Software Marketing

So we know there are a bunch of people out there who are going to be getting a PlayStation 3 this holiday (or already opened theirs). Many new owners are probably going to ask us what we have to offer, and as many of you know, there’s plenty!

Level-5 and SCEA would like to add to that list of fantastic titles by announcing the North American release of White Knight Chronicles International Edition February 2, 2010.

White Knight Chronicles International Edition Packfront

The International Edition not only includes the fully localized copy of White Knight Chronicles, but it also comes with the following additional features and content:

  • Over 50 disc-based online quests. You can complete these quests solo, or cooperatively with up to three other players to gain extra gear and experience. (That’s just on the disc. Wait until you hear what else we’ll have at launch!)
  • Voice Chat. Need we say more? =)
  • The Georama. Build an online village for your character where you can invite friends to complete quests online and purchase unique items and gear.
  • Live Talk. Leonard and his companions will have side conversations during gameplay, adding a little more character to your travels through the world of White Knight Chronicles.

We hope you’re as excited as we are about this upcoming release! Be sure to check out this month’s coverage in Qore and keep an eye out for even more information on this incredible RPG in the coming weeks!

Can’t wait! The window between this and FFXIII is a little short though but at least it’ll ensure that this game gets a great deal of time devoted to it to have it finished in time.

I am having a heart attack here. I am speechless right now :)
Sony, I love you.

I do have one question. Since this is the international version, will it have multiple languages to select from? For example, the original Japanese voice over with english subs?

    + Tsubasa Inaba on December 4th, 2009 at 10:28 am said:

    Multi-language support, yes.
    English, French and Spanish.
    (voice over is English only)

    We tried to include the Japanese but unfortunately couldn\’t make it happen. So sorry… :-(

I know the original Japanese release did not have Dual Shock 3 support.

Does the International Version support the DS3?

But is the international edition supposed to be available in stores or do we have to pre-order it? And if this is what we get in stores, what will be the price? 59.99$?

Yea and like the other guy said, will there be updated graphics? since its been like forever since the game was out in Japan…It needs to be better in every way possible! But I like the new contents!! Don’t get me wrong on that!

@Gamermonkey: I could not agree with you more. As you might be able to tell by my PSN ID I really like Dark Cloud and level-5 so I hope their next title is Dark Cloud 3.

+ komori_kiri on December 4th, 2009 at 10:19 am said:

Finally some (good) WKC news!

But what about the original Japanese voice/dub, is that included?


24

+ FearMonkey on December 4th, 2009 at 10:20 am said:

“International Edition” implies that it includes the original Japanese voice-overs with subtitles.

Does it? I would prefer to play the game with the original voice-over track.

Thanks for the info! :)

    + Tsubasa Inaba on December 4th, 2009 at 10:32 am said:

    As I posted above, we unfortunately were not able to include the Japanese original voice overs.

    However, we have spent extensive & quality time making sure the English voice overs are spot on.

    We hope you will enjoy the game regardless!

How does it NOT support rumble? I mean come on, they have had over a year to work on the english on, and have had rumble technology for a little over a decade…. does anyone else think thats weird?? Anyways, I’ll pre-order it as soon as it is available to do so on amazon! GO LEVEL 5!!!! bring dark cloud 3!

So the Georama and online quests weren’t in the Japanese version? Sounds like a lot of content that’s been added for this version.

    Some online quests were available at launch in Japan. Additional quests and the Georama were added later via patch. For the US, we\’re putting everything on the disc and adding more (outlined above).

I have been waiting awhile to play this game. Do we need rumble in this game? It’s an RPG. BTW, as you and many people know, the second one was announced a couple of months ago. Will it come to the US too?
