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 year with the release of Demon’s Souls and Gust’s Atelier Rorona. These will be followed by the PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia from Namco, Last Rebellion from NISA, End of Eternity ( aka Resonance of Fate for NA ) from Sega and, of course, FFXIII.
Unfortunately, 2 of the biggest and most anticipated rpgs, FFXIII and WKC, are both scheduled for a spring or 1st quarter 2010 release outside of Japan. If these two release within the same month, I think WKC will 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 versions that is and isn’t in the Japanese version, like the town creation feature found in the Dark Cloud series.
If I have to choose between FFXIII and WKC, 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?
