To quote: I wanted to give you a brief outline of the story and characters of White Knight Chronicles ll, which will hit U.S. PS3s this fall.
The original game "White Knight Chronicles: International Edition" (included with WKCII) began with the day of Princess Cisna's coming-of-age banquet in the Kingdom of Balandor.
When the ceremony is suddenly raided by a mysterious organization called Magi, young winemaker apprentice Leonard lead the princess to safety in the castle cellars, where he found a legendary weapon called the Incorruptus.

To quote: We caught up with Hiroaki Iwahara, Main Planner at Matrix Corp, to talk about White Knight Chronicles: Origins on PSP.
How does White Knight Chronicles: Origins feed into the wider WKC universe?
10,000 years before the original PS3 game takes place, there was a period of strife known as the Dogma Wars. This struggle is between the Yshrenian Empire who are harnessing the power of the Knights in a bid to conquer the world, and the Athwani Mage Kingdom who are trying to stop them.
