Will White Knight Chronicles be overshadowed by FFXIII?
The Ps3 is finally getting a decent flow of jrpgs. The rpg flood gates have already opened in Japan this yearÂ with the release ofÂ Demon’s Souls and Gust’s Atelier Rorona.Â These will be Â followed by the PS3 version of Â Tales of Vesperia from Namco, Last Rebellion from NISA,Â End of Eternity ( aka Resonance of Fate for NA )Â Â from Sega and, of course,Â FFXIII.
Unfortunately, 2 of the biggest and most anticipated rpgs, FFXIII and WKC, are both scheduled for a spring or 1st quarter 2010Â releaseÂ outside of Japan. If these two release within the same month, I think Â WKC willÂ get lost under the FFXIII hype. Which will be a shame. WKC offers online and offline game play. Plus Level 5 is adding tons of extra content for the NA and EU versionsÂ that is and isn’tÂ Â in the Japanese version, like the Â town creation feature found in the Dark Cloud series.
If I have to choose between FFXIII and WKC,Â I’ll be picking up WKC. Just because it’s a new IP and I wasn’t too impressed with the FFXIII demo ( then there’s the Shiva Sisters content that isn’t necessary.) But that’s just me.
What about you?
