Famitsu’s given up a meagre 29/40 score for White Knight Chronicles, as relayed by NeoGAF.
The review summary through there doesn’t make it sound like the most thrilling thing in the world. Apparently is has patch-worthy chat issues and is “the same” a every other Level-5 RPG in that “sadness befalls the land”.
Still. It looks pretty. The Level-5 RPG releases in Japan on Christmas Day. No date for the West as yet.
