To quote: As the release of White Knight Chronicles II, exclusively on PS3, draws closer, we got in touch with the game's director Yoshiaki Kusuda to talk about the story behind WKC II and the future of the series.

A year after the return of the Yshrenian Empire, Leonard and his companions come back together to protect the Kingdom of Balandor, the Archduchy of Faria and the Free City of Greede from the Yshrenian Empire, and end up having to save the entire world.
Two new characters will also play key parts in the story: Miu, the daughter of Archduke Dalam; and the mysterious Scardigne. There is civil unrest in the Archduchy of Faria, with one faction trying to protect Miu and another militant faction trying to spark a revolution.
