Level-5 CEO and president Akihiro Hino has confirmed that White Knight Chronicles will definitely be heading to U.S. shores, though he wouldn’t divulge exactly when we’d be able to get our hands on the game.
Speaking with GameTrailers.com, Hino was also quizzed on the possibility of having North American gamers playing alongside RPG fanatics in Japan via the game’s online mode, though noted the idea of cross-platform play "hasn't been decided yet"
White Knight Chronicles hit Japanese retailers on December 25, attracting slightly underwhelming scores from Famitsu editors. Nonetheless, this wasn’t enough to deter eager Japanese punters from snapping up a copy of the RPG, with the game selling over 130,00 copies on its first day of release.
A European release has yet to be announced.

i dont have a problem with the story. simple stories with cliche's sometimes give the game that little bit extra. stories dont have to be compared to MGS4 or bioshock

It's kinda like kitsch, I love kitsch.

I wouldn't consider Japanese & Americans being able to play together "cross-platform", that's a term used for games that would allow PC & console players play a game online together.

@ # 5
You're thinking of Factor 5.
and even if the scores seem low I want this game. Level 5 has released a lot of great games.
