White Knight Story will let four friends join together online and tackle quests.
Better still, the PS3-exclusive JRPG will use a lobby system where 16 people can gather, chat, and then break off into groups - according to Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation (read and scanned by PS3Hyper).
We're expecting to hear more about White Knight Story at the Tokyo Game Show.
So far, we know the game is developed by Level-5 (Dragon Quest VIII, Rogue Galaxy, Professor Layton) and will be out in Japan on Christmas Day.
Otherwise, all of our information comes from admittedly rather impressive videos and screenshots. You can see those in our White Knight Story gamepage.
