More White Knight Chronicles Goodness + Character Creation Video

Cristian Cardona's Avatar + Posted by Cristian Cardona on Jan 28, 2010 // Associate Product Marketing Manager, Software Marketing

We’re less than a week from the US release of White Knight Chronicles International Edition on February 2 and wanted to provide all of you with some updates on some of the great stuff we’ve got coming out in the next month to celebrate the game launch!

First off, we’re happy to announce that we’ll be releasing the first of several White Knight Chronicles Dynamic Themes next Thursday, February 4, on the PlayStation Store.

White Knight Chronicles 4

As many of you saw in our one-on-one with Tsubasa Inaba, White Knight Chronicles International Edition will be supporting Trophy and Home integration. As you play, through White Knight Chronicles, you’ll unlock a certain trophy that will grant you some pretty sweet stuff in Home. This particular trophy will grant you a White Knight costume, Which one is it? Pick up the Brady Guide to find out. Also, just for having your Save Data on your system, you’ll be able to unlock a Home figurine!

White Knight Chronicles Home items

Oh there’s more! Coming this February 25, LittleBigPlanet fans will be able to pick up their very own White Knight Chronicles Costume & Sticker Pack! Now you too, will be able to Play, Create and Share using character skins for White Knight Chronicles! You’ll be able to choose from Leonard, the White Knight, the Black Knight and the Dragon Knight.

LittleBigPlanet White Knight Chronicles costumes

Also, we’d like to let you know a bit more about the In Game Commerce featured in White Knight Chronicles. Those of you interested in getting ahead quickly in the Georama will have access to an Online Workshop. This is the place to purchase unique Georama parts you cannot otherwise create. These parts can then be used to upgrade your space even further!

And our last video on White Knight Chronicles’ character creation is available over at IGN (and here below). Take a look and learn more about how your avatar plays a role in the single player and online quests!

“first of several White Knight Chronicles Dynamic Themes”…so how many are there? and when will they all be released? I want to wait for all of them to come out first so I can compare and choose.

Now all we need are premium avatars for WKC.

Wow, the more I hear about this game, the more impatient I get for the release date. I’ve got mine reserved through preorder, so I’m all set.

Plus, new dynamic themes? Count me in. I’ve collected nearly all the dynamic themes so far, can’t wait to add these ones; though I’m curious about how they are animated.

Awesome, this game is just awesome, lol.

So if anyone is looking for someone to help them with online quests, add me!
But I wont help until i beat single player mode first though.

Quick question. When I take my personal character online and do quests with friends, is the equipment I find only for my character, or can I find things for Lenard and co.?

Thanks for answering our questions. I’m very much looking forward to this game next week. Rogue and DQ8, as well as Dark Cloud 1 and 2 have been very memorable games. I’m sure this will follow suit.

I work at gamestop and we got the guides in today. I see many references to their past work “dark cloud” Which is one of my favorite games of all time. I totally can’t wait for this.

Got this on pre-order, cannot wait to play it! Now I just wish “Agarest: Generations of War” would get brought over from Europe or the original Japanese game would get localized, then my year would be complete!

+ EventStatus on January 28th, 2010 at 12:40 pm said:

Hold on, so this is definitely coming out on tuesday? Not shipping then have to wait till wednesday or a couple days after that? Because I’ve had this preordered for a very long time, and amazon is telling me I won’t get WKC till the 5th or 6th.

That’s with my premium membership with all the bells and whistles. I may have to cancel and order this somewhere else.

How is the loot distribution handled if you take the game online? Are the items you get random or are there fixed items for each mission? Will each player get the same items?


65

+ Quixote on January 28th, 2010 at 12:43 pm said:

question-

this Workshop, does it use in-game currency, or is this a micro-transaction for Real Money model?

if it is a Micro-Transaction model, can someone like me who does not care for micro-transactions aquire said items through in-game means?

DAMN!
I was planning on buying this day one, but now I found out it’s being released the 26th of February in EU. But Heavy Rain is releasing the 24th of February so I’ll get that instead. Now that’s what you get for delaying it for EU. Maybe I’ll buy it cheaper later after Heavy Rain, Bioshock 2, God of War 3, ModNation Racers, etc..

I find the idea of microtransactions deeply upsetting so hopefully this is not the case but some clarification would be appreciated either way.

I’m finding the lack of response to the microtransaction questions concerning. If there really are unique parts you can only get with real money I have to say that is an awful way to treat customers who already spent money on the game.

Well, I’ve had the game on preorder and as much as I would like to get this game, I have to assume, since you won’t answer any questions about micro transactions, that this will be the case. Be careful, I am a contractor to various departments of the Federal Govt. and the FTC will be all over you if just one person complains about the micro transactions not being announced. Due to some new Regs, you are supposed to let people know about this so that they don’t have to pay 60$ to be forced to pay more money for unattainable items. As much as I want to play, I cannot see giving 60 bucks just to have to pay more for any other items. I have nor personal issue with havig micro transactions but not informing your customers before hand is no longer legit business. Come on guys, Quit with the greed.

    Sorry the post wasn\’t clear, but the Georama will have parts that you can create and parts that you can choose to purchase using micro-transactions to further enhance your space.

    As Tsubasa mentioned earlier, there will be PLENTY for you to work with in the game itself without having to purchase additional items using micro-transactions.

I think I will take the money I put on that and put it on heavy rain or another good game. I have always been a fan of playstation but you need to give a darn about your customers and not just your wallets.
I hate microsoft, but I’m beginning to think that I might pick up a 360 and convert my ps3 into a computer.
