TGS 09: White Knight Chronicles 2 revealed

White Knight Chronicles hasn’t even touched American soil yet, but that’s not stopped Sony pumping money into a sequel that’s slated to be revealed at the Tokyo Game Show. The Level 5-developed original hit Japanese shelves last Christmas, but won’t be coming to the West until next year.

Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has revealed the game in its TGS exhibitor list, naming Shirokishi Monogatari: Hikari to Yami no Kakusei. The game roughly translates into White Knight Chronicles: Awakening of Light and Darkness. Yeah … that sounds suitably JRPG.

I briefly played the first game at E3 this year, and it looked hopeful, if very MMO-ish. We’ll have to see how it does in the US and Europe first before getting excited for the sequel though.
