I am surprised that selling ~275K copies of a game warrants a sequel; not complaining mind you, just thought it was interesting that White Knight Chronicles II is nearing a U.S. release.
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.
It’s a good thing that gamers do not have to finish WKC:I in order to enjoy the sequel. I would be toast; never managed to complete the first title, but will probably look to waste a few dollars and hours on number two.
