Short on providing an actual release date for White Knight Chronicles II in North America, D3Publisher have posted an update detailing the premise and some of the new and improved features that players can expect in the epic RPG sequel.
White Knight Chronicles II ships with a remastered version of the original game. While Japanese players were required to clear White Knight Chronicles: International Edition before they can start WKCII, North American players won't have to worry about that as they can simply jump straight into the sequel.
The North American release also comes loaded all the downloadable quests released in Japan, fully localized in English.
"The North American version will include a fully localized version of the Japanese game with additional on-disc quests that were originally released as downloadable quests in Japan in January 2011. In our North American version, players can start from White Knight Chronicles II without completing the original game "” an important point, as the Japanese version requires players to clear White Knight Chronicles: International Edition in order to play the sequel," said Assistant Producer Miki Takahashi.
"We are currently targeting September for a North American release. The gameplay time will easily go over 100 hours. Prepare yourselves, folks!"
