IGN reports that the latest issue of Japan’s Famitsu magazine has confirmed that a sequel to White Knight Chronicles is in development.
Sadly there’s not a lot to go on right now, with the publication neglecting to divulge much of any concrete info on the project, other than hinting at the return of protagonist Leonard.
Elsewhere, the magazine also details the new 2nd Wave update for the original White Knight Chronicles, which allows gamers to construct their own world utilizing the Georama social network. Paid avatars will also be introduced.
Interestingly enough, the celebrated RPG has yet to make it to western shores, with a firm release still to be determined. Rest assured, however, PSU will bring you all the latest info on the game (as well as its sequel) as it becomes available to us.

a sequel to a game that ain't even out? Are you sure its not for PSP.......
- 10:08am EDT - July 29th, 2009
Hurry and bring out the western version for the game :(
I was also kind of hoping for Dark Cloud 3 to be in development :( Especially with the georama update, one would think it was definately in the works.
i guess the success in japan gave them the motivation for a sequel. looking forward to WKC1 anyways, no point getting hyped for a sequel when the original hasn't even left Japan >_<

The first WKC should be out in the first half of next year. I hope the wait for this game isn't as long as the first.

@1 I think the game is already out in Japan, and is coming later for the North American market.

This game wasn't that well received. Drop the cash for Demon's Souls instead.

@ 9 - Are you kidding.... Dawn of Dreams was the best one. Roberto FTW!!
On topic: This news is cool.....good even, in Japan I am sure. Not so much for the rest of the world who have yet to play the first one.

the freaking game isn't even out yet...
- 4:31pm EDT - July 29th, 2009
WTF ... they didnt even release the 1st game here yet
- 7:28pm EDT - July 29th, 2009

DAMN !!! i want this game :(
- 7:54pm EDT - July 29th, 2009
I think 350k sold only in Japan
is good enough to make a sequel !
- 9:54pm EDT - July 29th, 2009
1 isn't even out in us wytf would we want 2
- 10:16pm EDT - July 29th, 2009
@people saying it's not out, it's been out for ages in Japan /duh
I hope they make it in English at the same time for the sequel. Why they didn't for the first one is beyond me. This industry is run by idiots.
I'm glad they're finally realising that there is no reason to exclude console games from editing tools. Consoles are just PC's now anyway.
- 11:31pm EDT - July 30th, 2009
It still needs to come out everywhere else first!

To me, sequel means: no first one since they're already looking at its follow-up. Has anyone gotten on to Level 5s a55 about releasing the game elsewhere before talking sequel?
