Video: White Knight Chronicles Characters GamesCom Trailer

200°
244w ago - Here is a new White Knight Chronicles 'Characters' trailer for PS3 from GamesCom earlier today.

The video's caption simply reads: This band of friends is ready to fight for what's right.

Some background details on the title, as follows: White Knight Chronicles, like most other console RPGs, is presented in third-person perspective.

The player can freely choose which character to control. Like any other RPG, the characters gain experience points and level up, becoming stronger over the course of the game.

Level-5 conceives White Knight Chronicles as having 100 hours of gameplay, a length Akihiro Hino considers to be a full length RPG, going against the pressure to make White Knight Chronicles a launch title and cutting the story short.

Check out the trailer below!

100°
245w ago - GameStop has reportedly revealed two more characters in "Zigo the Fisherman" and "Blanche the Actress," available "exclusively" through pre-order of the game via in-store ads.

These characters were previously announced and are the first two characters from the multiplayer portion of the game that 2K has revealed.

To quote: Koku Gamer spotted the images on the 2K's BioShock 2 forum from Rocco, where astute forum-goers point out that the images of the two characters look a lot like recently released BioShock 2 Mulitplayer Gamerpics #2 content on Xbox Live.

As the game's release has been pushed back to the "first half" of 2010, we're waiting to hear more before running out to the store and dropping five Earth dollars, thank you very much.
 

New Final Fantasy XIII Characters Detailed in Jump Magazine

300°
249w ago - A scan from the latest issue of Jump Magazine reveals some new Final Fantasy XIII character details, and NeoGAF forum member Rpgmonkey has translated some of the scan, as follows:

Hope Estheim
€The silver-haired boy
€Uses a boomerang
€Hates Snow for getting his mother involved in the battle
€New Monster, "Cie Corpse (Husk?)"
€The eventual fate of a l'Cie
€Vanille's weapon is a fishing rod
€Lightning's great skill, "Air Blast"
€A l'Cie becomes a Cie Corpse when there's an unclear objective and they exceed their time limit, or something like that.

Vanille is shown in several of the trailers, but she is still a mystery. Shown in the trailers as a young girl looking a lot like FFX's Rikku, Vanille will use a yo-yo type of weapon.

It's not heavily detailed as to what abilities she'll have or what kind her weapon will use, but she'll be swinging it around during battles.

In a later post he clarifies some of this information:

I don't know if it's exactly a fishing rod or it's just the most accurate description, but apparently she attacks with a needle attached to a wire, so it's at least the easiest...
 

New Tales of Graces Scan Reveals Two New PS3 Characters

50°
250w ago - A new Tales of Graces scan is available, which appears to reveal two new playable characters, as well as some new information about the PlayStation 3 port of Tales of Vesperia.

This game is the first mothership (Namco Bandai's term for non-spin-off games in the Tales of series) game for the Wii.

The previous Tales of game for the Wii, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, was classified as a spin-off sequel.

To quote: The black-haired male's name is Hubert Oswell (voiced by Takahiro Mizushima) and is Asbel's younger brother (by one year), and the red-haired female's name is Shelia Barnes/Burns (voiced by Shiho Kawaragi).

It appears the male favors close-hand combat, while the female uses spells to attack. The scan also shows a new swimsuit costume for Flynn, entitled Short-Sleeved Prince, which has Mieu from Tales of the Abyss on the logo.
