White Knight Chronicles 2 picked up for US release
PlayStation 3 exclusive White Knight Chronicles has been confirmed for US release, thanks to D3 Publisher.
Joystiq reports The Level-5 RPG, which also includes a remastered version of the original, will release during summer.
Sony will release the game in Europe in May. It’s been out in Japan for almost a year.
The Japanese version of the game was a kind of high-level expansion for the original, and required players to have a save file from a cleared game in order to avoid replaying the events of the first title. This feature has apparently been removed from the Western release.
The first White Knight Chronicles also suffered a long delay between Japanese and International releases, but benefited from massive patching in the meantime as Level-5 tweaked the heavily multiplayer-focused gameplay.
