Originally reported by Gematsu, the news broke on a livestream with Level-5 boss Akihiro Hino who was a guest on the stream because White Knight Chronicles II is a free PS Plus game for Japan this month.
There is no news on whether the game is a PS4 exclusive or not, but when asked about the game itself Akihiro Hino claimed he wanted to make a game that exceeds the epic scope of the White Knight Chronicles series.
Level-5 created my favorite game of all-time, Dragon Quest VIII. There is no word on whether the new game will be similar, but to have that chance is exciting enough for me. I also enjoyed Ni No Kuni a great deal and with its impressive sales it would not surprise me if we got a sequel. Now I am just waiting for PlayStation 2 HD remasters of Dragon Quest VIII and Rogue Galaxy. But I won’t hold my breath.
