News of an online multiplayer party mode for White Knight Chronicles was one of Sony's biggest announcements at October's Tokyo Game Show. But they forgot to mention one big feature. In addition to online play, White Knight Chronicles will include a built-in social network service.

Announced today at a pre-launch event in Tokyo, the built-in SNS is formally known as "GeoNet." This area of the game has all the features you'd expect of an SNS, including friend lists, a journal with comment functionality, and messaging. The service also keeps track of who's reading your content, so you can see if your journal is popular.

This is just one feature of what should be a feature-rich RPG. Developer Level-5 is even giving the game content off the Blu-ray disc! Today, the White Knight site was updated with a web comic, White Knight Chronicles: Episode 0 Dogma Wars (this is an English translation of the Japanese name, Shirokishi Monogatari: Epsiode 0 Dogma Senki). This comic tells the story of a battle that took place 10,000 years prior to the game. You can see the Japanese version for yourself at the White Knight official site under the "Special" section.

White Knight Chronicle hits Japan on Christmas day. Check out the media page below for the latest screens.
This sounds interesting.

Man i hope this game hurries to the US. Japan is lucky to get this on Christmas. The online reminds me of PSO or Monster Hunter. And you know Japan goes crazy for Monster Hunter. Hopefully this can be the new big thing in Japan and hopefully everywhere.

All I hope is that after all this is said and done, they have support for voice chat in multiplayer.

In the promotional videos, all they show are people typing out messages via the controller, that might just kill the experience for me...

Oh wow.. that's pretty cool stuff ^^ While I don't mind all the FPS games out and coming out, this would be such a welcome breath of fresh air. And it seems like it'll be a minty fresh breath of air too :D
