White Knight Chronicles II And White Knight Chronicles PSP Heads To Europe In May

Over on the European PlayStation Blog, Sony announced White Knight Chronicles II and White Knight Chronicles Origins (that’s the English name for White Knight Chronicles Episode.Portable: Dogma Wars) are en route to Europe.

 

When? May for both games says SCEE brand manager Ross Alexander in the comments. In Japan, White Knight Chronicles II included the first game on disc. In fact, you had to play it before you could start the second story if you didn’t finish White Knight Chronicles. There is a data import feature, which rewards players who trudged through the first game a special item.

 

Neither White Knight Chronicles II or White Knight Chronicles Origins has a release window in North America, but if these games are coming to Europe in May an announcement can’t be far behind… unless stores are suddenly going to get surprise shipments.

 

Thanks to Denpa no Sekai for the stealth tip!

  • Advent_Andaryu

    I’m still anxious to continue where the first WKC left off, I hate cliff hanger endings…

    This is awsome. May is pretty close and is actually my birthday!! XD pretty good birthday present lol so glad i live in europe coz i have been waiting for this game to have an english annoncement. Day 1 purchase ftw!!

    I was going to pick up the first one when I saw it on sale for $20 way back when, but then after hearing the second game had an updated battle system and it was going to include the first game, then I didn’t bother with the first game since there was a superior version that included everything.

    Now that it’s getting a PAL release date and most likely a US one, then I’ll pick it up then. Even if it doesn’t get released to the US, doesn’t matter. Importing is always an option and it’ll be a text heavy game in a language that I can actually understand.

    Great news! This will for sure come to NA. Really enjoyed part 1.

    That’s awesome news I’ve desperately waiting for these games. Now I go to sleep and have some sweet dreams.

  • AdamBoy64

    YES! This is fantastic.
    Been anticipating this for some time… It’s finally come true!
    I guess it wasn’t a surprise with all the VA’s leaking it.. but still, good to have it confirmed!

    “There is a data import feature, which rewards players who trudged through the first game a special item.”

    You should have given special emphasis on the word “trudged” there, Spencer.
    Seriously, playing through WKC felt like a chore, and the cliffhanger ending was a huge disappointment.
    Actually, everything about WKC was a huge disappointment. No amount of special items will make me want the second game.

  • Draparde

    wow, thats awesome, i hope it gets an american announcement soon

    Let’s hear it for an American announcement.

  • PrinceHeir

    i can’t wait for the NA release :P

    hopefully they include the 1st game when 2 get’s released here ^^

    good to see Europe getting some love :)

    I enjoyed the first one and it’s online component, I would buy the second depending on how my backlog looks.

  • Tarlol

    Hope to see a NA release date soon!

  • kroufonz

    i am hope this time they’ll include japanese voice!

    not just because kugimiya rie in this second game :P, but also because the first game dub is quite bad.

    why can’t SCE exclusive jrpg come sooner to the west, is not like they have other game to be localized wkc pretty much one and only sony published jrpg in PS3?

    • epy

      Agreed. They can’t feign ignorance about adding the japanese voices like they did with the first game.

  • NoElixirs

    Can’t wait for the PSP title.

  • holyPaladin

    Need to finish WKC first T_T

    • HarryHodd

      It might be included in updated form with 2.

  • AdamBoy64

    This also means moar Charles Shaughnessy!
    (I sure hope there’s no VA changes – that’d be.. bad)

    Oh man, I loved his work in the first game. His and Leonard’s VA were my favourites in WKC1..

  • epy

    Might want to add the first game included in WKC2 included many improvements over the original version that address the complains many had. Really hope this can be done in the western releases.

  • Cloud_ST

    Dogma wars looks really nice,I can’t wait.

    If it doesn’t come out in the NA region I am going to cry and import lol

    Graphics look sharper and I heard the battles are faster paced which is great. Though I was disappointed with the original I still enjoyed it and have been looking forward to the squel and PSP WKC game as well :D

    Hopefully, they provided lines for your avatar…or he just disappears completelty when it comes to cut-scenes.

  • eilegz

    i hope they include the first one like the japanese version… plus every dlc content
