Ragnarok Odyssey PS Vita Ships in North America


Developed by veteran studio Game Arts, creators of the Grandia and Lunar series, and based on the well-known Ragnarok Online universe, Ragnarok Odyssey is a new handheld title created exclusively for the PS®Vita. A fast-paced game with a heavy emphasis on melee combat, Ragnarok Odyssey is set in a world where humans and giants are pitted against each other in battle following the fall of the ancient gods. Centered on Norse Mythology, the world of Ragnarok Odyssey will begin to take form as players advance through the story, with new areas opening up as their journey goes on.

After entering the world and creating a character from over 20,000 possible combinations based on customizable physical features, players are given the choice of one of six specialized job classes before entering the open world where plenty of real-time, action-based combat awaits. Characters can chain together devastating combo attacks both on the ground and in the air thanks to the game’s extremely versatile combat system. Players will enjoy enemies of massive scale and control characters of otherworldly strength, with the ability to literally smack giant opponents across the screen. In particularly heated combat, players can even increase their speed and agility at the expense of HP in the game’s more challenging battles. Cooperative gameplay is a huge highlight for socially inclined handheld gamers, and Ragnarok Odyssey supports up to four players for ad-hoc and online co-op play.

Ragnarok Odyssey was developed by Game Arts, together with GungHo Online Entertainment in Japan, and is now available in North America from XSEED Games at an MSRP of $39.99 for the standard edition and $49.99 for the Mercenary Edition. GungHo Online Entertainment America will publish Ragnarok Odyssey in Europe this winter. For more information, visit the product website at www.ragnarokodysseyvita.com
