    Story
    The story of White Knight Chronicles begins in the kingdom of Balandor, where a princess's coming-of-age banquet is raided by an evil Corporation called Wizard. A boy called Leonard grabs the princess's hand and leads her to safety in the castle cellars, where he finds a strange suit of armor that transforms him into the White Knight - an ancient warrior with the strength to defeat the Wizard corporation forces. Leonard's transformation into a mighty hero, the White Knight, is the beginning of a life-changing fantasy experience, fighting against the fiercest enemies.

    Still don't know why this game has such high anticipation. Developers have a high pedigree or something?

    The regular version has been out for about a year in JP and has looked quite good.

    Also, most of it's low marks in reviews from anywhere come from issues with the Multiplayer/Online system, which while it may not be everything expected is still sort of unusual and a nice bonus for a JRPG.

    Not sure if I'm in or not... if I am, it will be an impulsive buy. Depends on how many people buy it/what reviews say I guess :o It does look awesome though, but I dunno if I can handle this, BioShock 2 AND Heavy Rain in one month on top of everything else in life :wtc:

    I'm just happy there's another RPG to play on the PS3. I'll wait for the reviews though.

    What reviews? Servers don't go up till Tuesday so you won't see any worth reading till then.

    The Japanese version got average reviews but they've had a ton of game improving patches (a la Burnout Paradise) since release that will be on disc for this version. Also you'll never see a JRPG not named Final Fantasy get over an ~8 in the US, so take that into account.
