Meet the New Characters of White Knight Chronicles II

Miki Takahashi's Avatar Posted by Assistant Producer, D3Publisher

Miu-and-Scardigne-2

Hi guys! I wanted to give you a brief outline of the story and characters of White Knight Chronicles ll, which will hit U.S. PS3s this fall. The original game “White Knight Chronicles: International Edition” (included with WKCII) began with the day of Princess Cisna’s coming-of-age banquet in the Kingdom of Balandor. When the ceremony is suddenly raided by a mysterious organization called Magi, young winemaker apprentice Leonard lead the princess to safety in the castle cellars, where he found a legendary weapon called the Incorruptus. Leonard gains the knightly powers of the Incorruptus and sets out on a journey to save Princess Cisna with his friends: Yulie, Leonard’s childhood friend; Eldore, an old but skilled warrior; and Caesar, the son of the ruler of Greede.

However, the journey to rescue Princess Cisna became a harsh one. They overcame many challenges before Leonard and his friends came to realize that they had gotten caught up in a war that had been raging since ancient times — the Dogma Wars, a brutal battle that begin 10,000 years ago across the entire continent. And they may have simply been following a destiny that was determined since those ancient days…

At the end of White Knight Chronicles: International Edition, Leonard and his friends faced Grazel at the Dogma Rift that is a great gash formed by a massive earthquake. We don’t want to spoil the ending so that is all we can say for now.

Yulie-and-EldoreLeonard

White Knight Chronicles ll continues one year after this event. The world was exposed to the advancement of the military forces of the Yshrenian Empire with people’s lives at stake. It wasn’t just the Kingdom of Balandor that was affected, but also the great nation of Faria to the far west. White Knight Chronicles ll starts with a whole new level; “Faria”, with two new characters; Scardigne and Miu.

Faria is a grand nation that exists within The Lost Forest, to the west of the Dogma Rift. It is a prosperous country that is built around a giant tree that is revered as their guardian. The designs of the buildings and the clothing that the people wear are very unique to their society. The decorations used for armor, and especially the peoples’ hairstyles can only be found here, giving it a sort of grace to their culture. In the past, they were in a fierce war against the Kingdom of Balandor. But thanks to the peace talks which were strongly pursued between King Valtos of Balandor and Archduke Dalam of Faria, the nation maintains its quiet peace. However, there has been uneasy movement within Faria since Archduke was killed in the Magi incident a year ago at Balandor.

General Scardigne, who served the nation, and a girl named Miu were fighting to defend themselves from their pursuers. This young girl was the granddaughter of Archduke Dalam who had once ruled Faria, and the nation’s only hope. Gradually, the story heads into an epic global battle for world domination…

Please meet the new characters as well as some familiar friends below. Please note that the graphics for the original characters have also been improved throughout the game including throughout the remastered original. We hope fans enjoy stunning graphics created by LEVEL-5 and we look forward to releasing the game in North America in September!

Scardigne

Scardigne (New Character): The general of Faria. Scardigne meets with Leonard during the attempt to save Miu from Faria’s civil war and they travel together from there. He does not show emotion and has a cold demeanor, but he is very dependable.

Miu

Miu (New Character): The kind-hearted granddaughter of the late Archduke Dalam who prefers not to fight. When the civil war broke out, her life was threatened because she was the daughter to Archduke Dalam. She fled from Faria with Scardigne, and met with Leonard. She still wonders how she can help.

Character_Leonard

Leonard: A kind young man with a strong sense of justice and a passionate side, who once used to work as an apprentice to a winemaker in the castle town of Balandor. He has a slight crush on Princess Cisna. After accidently becoming the pactmaker to the White Knight, he completed missions for the kingdom and for Princess Cisna, though he was never an official member of the royal army. He is now an official knight of the Kingdom of Balandor.

Character_Cisna

Cisna: The princess of Balandor who lost her voice and smile due to an emotional trauma from her childhood. Her castle is raided during her coming-of-age ceremony, and her father, the king, is killed right in front of her eyes by a man in dark armor. Currently, she has overcome King Valtos’s death. To fight against the Yshrenian empire and to settle the struggles in the Kingdom of Balandor, she sends Leonard as a messenger to Faria.

Character_Yulie

Yulie: Leonard’s childhood friend who lives in the village of Parma, she’s a cheerful girl who is always smiling and also has secret feelings for Leonard. At first, she was against Leonard going into battle, but after serious thought of what she can do for Leonard in this continued war against Yshrenia, she decides to swear to fight alongside him. She currently travels with Leonard as support.

Character_Caeser

Caesar: The son of Count Drisdall, the ruler of the free city of Greede. In contrast to his father Drisdall who is respected by all the citizens as the governor of the city, Caesar has a very free-spirited personality. A year ago, he traveled with Leonard as the pactmaker of the Dragon Knight. After the journey, he separated ways with Leonard and has taken up his position as lord of Greede after his father passed. Though his carefree demeanor and actions may cause people to misjudge him, his heart is honest and caring.

Grazel

Grazel: The leader of the Magi force and the pactmaker of the Sun King. He believes that he is the reincarnation of Emperor Madoras of ancient Yshrenia and attempts to make the world his own. One year ago, he proclaimed the empire of Yshrenia reborn and declared war against the world.

I waited way to long to try out WKC, but once I finally got it I fell in love. I’ve already got it pre-ordered and can’t wait to dive into more of the story. Thanks for localizing this one and all the hard work that went into getting it ready for us!

GRG89 said:

August 12th, 8:41 pm

Im confused? I never played this series but WKC1 includes 2 as well? And WKC2 includes 1?

Good to know another rpg coming to the PS3. Sony has to revive Legend of the Dragoon!!!!!!

Idk, i remember waiting for what felt like forever for the first one, bought day one, in the morning and by the time i beat it i just felt like it was an okay game, nothing all that great, well except the combat system, loved that cause it reminded me of the FFXII combat system. the graphics looked pretty dated too when it came out and your character never even talked or anything, pretty much just getting pushed in one direction or the other without any opinion of his own. the trophies too were like wow too. how you gonna make put them in there and say you dont expect anyone to ever get it? don’t need to set them to a bijillion hour trophies but whatever. So with that im just skeptical on getting the sequel cause i don’t wanna be let down again.

Got this pre-ordered at Gamestop for the White Knight bonus equipment for the avatar Knight. Hope the new combat engine makes the first game more enoyable to play, because I’m going for my second playthrough when it comes out. Many thanks to D3 Publisher for bringing this stateside. And here’s hoping L-5 starts thinking Rogue Galaxy or Dark Cloud sequels soon. They have enough funds from Professor Layton on the DS to bankroll another one of their cel shaded masterpieces.

I want Dark Cloud 3!….. but I was wondering, the Final Fantasy series is my favorite of all time and I was wondering how does this series compare? Ive seen reviews on it but I wanna know what real players think….. thank you to who ever gives me info. I also wanna say what a great deal two games in one whoooohoooo! that is a steal way to give people some real bang for their buck you guys. I also like your character models… keep up the good work you guys and good luck

Will you be coming backk to talk about online co-op or is there none? Also will the town building feature return with the new game? I got the first game day 1 and had trouble finding other towns. Will we be connected to European towns? (the more the merrier)

pacheco44 said:

GalaKnight said:

August 13th, 2:04 am

cool_Pinoy2343 said:

August 13th, 7:25 am

ItaChu said:

August 13th, 7:26 am

Ichywawa said:

August 13th, 7:52 am

Can’t wait, this game and skyrim are the only 2 games im still looking forward to for this year.

VietKnight said:

August 13th, 8:39 am

Do you know if the makeover ticket only works on WKC1 or you can use it on WKC2?

ManaKnight said:

August 13th, 10:34 am

I have this game preordered. WKC was such a great RPG, I’m definitely excited for this.

poisonedsodapop said:

August 13th, 11:02 am

I was originally gonna get this just to finish the story but I’m gonna delve into the online again. Trying to platinum the first before this one comes out and I feel like I’m moving so slow. But determined to get that tiara. Day one for me on WKC2.

poisonedsodapop said:

August 13th, 11:03 am

@64 when you start WKC2 you can remake your whole character. Even their name from my understanding. And I’d assume the ticket is only for WKC1.

logicsquirrel said:

August 13th, 11:55 am

Looking forward to this for a while now i have already pre-ordered and paid in full, thank you for releasing this in the states.

Get a real graphic engine and get back to us, SCEJ.

jimmyfoxhound said:

August 13th, 2:01 pm

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Big fan of the first one (although me losing my job meant no internet so I missed a lot of the good parts of the game). I’ve saved my cash and will definitely be picking this up!! I’m so glad this is being published here in the states! Thank you!!

Souledge94 said:

August 13th, 2:18 pm

paniccmc said:

SoleAddict23 said:

August 13th, 2:59 pm

What RPG´s is this game similar with in terms on the fighting? I ask I´m really interested in getting a few RPG´s when I get a PS3 which will be this month or the next. Thanks in advance!

jqtaxpayer said:

August 13th, 4:07 pm

DARK CLOUD 3, PLEASE!!!

Ahem… anyhow, anxious to see how WKC II came out — but, just out of curiosity, why such a long delay for an NA release, though? Seems like if you had everything done for the EU release, that would cover everything in the NA release and then-some (assuming the EU version has multiple languages).

Souledge94 said:

August 13th, 5:16 pm

@ DuoMaxwell007

Whats this about dlc that has mission staring your character?

t36066 said:

August 13th, 8:48 pm

J-Eagle22 said:

August 14th, 1:19 am

Nothing to do with this but can you repair a PS3

LionHeartX83 said:

August 14th, 5:51 am

Can’t wait for this. It’s been a while since I finished the first game. Always reminded me of an Escaflowne rpg.

Sonic-Boom said:

August 14th, 8:32 am

Looks promising

PainOfSarrow said:

August 14th, 9:16 am

jayson-b1 said:

August 14th, 11:10 am

Anyone play DCUO? If so, add me

SymponicFantasia said:

August 14th, 12:28 pm

This looks pretty cool. Might check it out. Also, anyone else think the two in the big screenshot at the top look like Cecil from FF4 (Dark Knight) and Zelkova from .Hack G.U.?

PumpkinMusic837 said:

August 14th, 2:34 pm

how will the trophy data be handled?
will the new game be combined with the old game trophy data or is it separated?
its been bothering me for the last couple of days

iTofuMan said:

August 14th, 2:59 pm

Any word on the Psp version? been really dying to play it.

Cyber_Goth_Night said:

August 14th, 3:48 pm

been waiting for this forever

KanesInferno said:

August 14th, 9:13 pm

For those wondering, you can’t get online with WKC1 that’s included on part 2’s disc. So if you want to play WKC1 online, if you haven’t already, you’ll need to buy the stand alone game. The WKC1 that’s included with 2 is offline only.

RavageHeitaro said:

August 14th, 11:49 pm

Can’t wait! Really enjoyed WKC1

cano74 said:

coolford98 said:

August 16th, 1:09 pm

Cant wait for wkc2 to come out. I enjoyed the 1st wkc so much that i have been playing it for over 2000 hrs. I am expecting to do the same for the 2nd. Btw, when is Origins coming to America?

Elvick_ said:

August 16th, 2:33 pm

I can’t wait.

Stylianfire said:

August 23rd, 6:35 pm

Looking forward to the game. I did not play the first one but am a fan of JRPG’s. Used to play a lot of KOEI games…

Anyway cant wait!

Hope the Developers keep us informed on features, DLC etc.

I CANNOT WAIT 13 DAYS!!!! Yes in just 13 days the game hits stateside and i’m going to get back to those long days and nights (well when they dont become a blurr lol) of grinding this game! I’m a huge fan of the series and just hope the online community is a bit stronger this time around, when i hit GR12 everyone started to fall off but i have high hopes this time around. I will be counting down my friends, Add me on the PSN and we’ll tear this game open!!!
