PS3 exclusive White Knight Chronicles will be released in Japan on December 25th, reports Kotaku.

Details on the Level 5-developed RPG remain scant, but the 'White Knight' of the story is a man named Lenard, and reports suggest it will be a true epic - with playtime somewhere in the region of 50 to 60 hours.

An interview in Famitsu with Level 5's Akihiro Hino claimed, "This is the first, big RPG that the PS3 has been waiting for." Fighting talk.

With just a few weeks to go until the Tokyo Game Show, expect more news on this one soon. We'll be there to write it down and put it on the internet. And before you ask, a release date hasn't yet been confirmed for the rest of the world.
