-From Software are huge fans of kings field.
-Sony Approached From Software to make a game for them.
-The director thinks it was a great timing when sony asked about the game. He was working on Armored Core game and his company was working on an rpg (Probably Enchanted Arms?). It was a while since they worked on a fantasy game (I think more of an action rpg game).
-From Software gets complete freedom to make the game.
-They get also lots of help from Sony when they need to.
-The main character is a From Software like character. They want to have their From Software flavour with the game and characters.
-The game doesn't necessary have to look amazing, they are more aiming for a good game with the right balance.
-You can swap items in realtime? (Not sure about that).
-They want the game to look very rpg like and it has elements to remind you from older rpgs.
-They had of like a trial and error with the balance of the game many times.
-They are not planning on making the game too hard like other action rpg games.

Evil is Evil. Lesser, greater, middling...makes no difference. The degree is arbitrary.

The definition's blurred. If I'm to choose between one evil and another, I'd rather not choose at all.

ok, but the English language is still available. So it shouldn't be far from a NA release unless they don't plan to do that.

First two reveiws-

Famistu- 29/40 (9, 7, 7, 6)
Dengeki- 350/400 (95, 85, 85, 85)

Source

Well that seems pretty good to me. I wouldn't care about Famistu reveiws after they gave Last remnant 38/40, IU 32 and WKC 28. They are going in the route of SE fanboys (first time I heard of one). But these reviews are still better than what WKC received and it is the highest selling jrpg this generation.

And looking at PA, the Asian version of the game has passed even KZ2 as the bestseller, so thats some achievement.

Not much info is available on it. Famistu gave it 28/40 but the western previews have so far been positive. Check out the 1up preview posted in the WKC thread to get a better idea about the game.

Well, the low scores for DS are because of its insane difficulty and the inability to pause during the game.

There is no low "scores" for DS. The only low score is from Famistu and it is still higher than WKC.

Well, according to a couple of hands-on reviews, the game is exceedingly difficult, which will lead to you dying often.

Yeah, hands on hasn't been positive and claims poor frame rates. But since the game is being made by Sony, it is probably an extremely old build which everyone tried out and none of these previews were from reliable sites. 7.25 from famistu and 8.75 from Dengeki is definitely good scores for non-SE rpgs.

Anyway, the game is selling a lot right now. Lets hope the WKC and DS sales will encourage SE to bring SO4 to the PS3.

Lets see how this turns out to be. To tell the truth, I am enjoying DQ 8 so much that I don't know if I will be able to go back to dark and violent RPGs any time soon.

DQ8 = Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of a cursed King.

It happens to be the fastest selling PS2 game ever, with 3,000,000 (yes, these zeroes are real) copies sold in the very first week.

Yup. Old school turned based. The character animations have been done by Akira Toriyama, which is why the hero looks like teenage Gohan

Is WKC a dark and violent game? I have played only one Level 5 game and that was Rogue galaxy, which I enjoyed to the hilt.
