White Knight Chronicles Sequel in the WorksLevel 5 working on sequel to last year's PS3 RPG.07.29.09 - 3:08 PM
Fukuoka-based development studio Level 5 is apparently working on a sequel to last year's popular PlayStation 3 RPG Shiro Kishi Monogatari
(White Knight Chronicles
). Unfortunately, the developers have yet to reveal any details.
In addition to the sequel, Level 5 and publisher Sony Computer Entertainment announced a second major update for the original White Knight Chronicles. Titled 2nd Wave, this new update will allow the player to freely create a world complete with NPCs and fields for him or herself. 2nd Wave will also introduce new parts/items that can be purchased. This new offer is geared towards players who would like to create a unique-looking character. Those who want to change the appearance of their existing avatar will be able to do so at a charge in the near future as well. Furthermore, the developers are working on increasing the number of accessories and improving the skill balance.
White Knight Chronicles has been available in Japan since last December. Since then, the game has sold more than 350,000 copies. Sony Computer Entertainment America plans to bring White Knight Chronicles to side this of the Pacific in early 2010.
