We're still waiting on the North American release of White Knight Chronicles , but developer Level 5 certainly isn't sitting on their laurels.
According to RPGFan , they're already working on a sequel, although we don't have any details just yet. This is already starting to remind us of the Yakuza franchise; by the time we get one of the installments, the sequel is already available in Japan. In news pertaining to the original, Level 5 has also announced the second major update for WKC, which is known as the "2nd Wave." This lets players "freely create a world complete with NPCs and fields for him or herself." There will also be new items and weapons to purchase and basically, this update is for those who wish to "create a unique-looking character." All of this will probably sound cool albeit a little painful to RPG fans here in the U.S., who have to wait until next year before getting their hands on this long-awaited title. Still, it's great that Level 5 continues to make additions and enhancements and to have a sequel already in the works…? Well, that's great news, provided the original is well worth our time, and it looks like it will be.
White Knight Chronicles has sold over 350,000 copies in Japan thus far, and we've been hoping to see it hit stateside in January or February of 2010.
