White Knight Chronicles is a fantasy role-playing video game series created by Level-5 and SCE Japan Studio that is exclusive to Sony consoles. The PlayStation 3 titles were developed by Level-5, while the latest entry for the PlayStation Portable, Origins was developed by Matrix Software with no creative input from Level-5.

The series is a trilogy consisting of the first two games and Origins, although director Yoshiaki Kusuda has stated, "Right now, we have no plans for more games in the series. We will publish more quests in the form of DLC. And you never know - if there is strong support for another sequel..."[citation needed]

Other Media[edit]

A web exclusive prequel manga called Shirokishi Monogatari: Episode 0 Dogma Senki (White Knight Chronicles Episode 0: Dogma War Chronicleis) was released in 2008. Takashi Ikeda oversaw the story for this prequel with Yūko Satō illustrating the actual manga in collaboration with Media Factory's Comic Alive editorial department. The story takes place 10,000 years before the main game's story in an era embroiled by war and chaos. It follows the story of another White Knight who predates the White Knight hero character of the game.


Origins takes place in the no-man's-land between Athwan and Yshrenia 10,000 years before the first two games.

The main games in the series take place in the kingdom of Balandor.
