Ragnorak Odyssey Set For US Launch Thanks To XSEED
When it was announced, Ragnorak Odyssey was only confirmed for Japan.
But apparently, action/RPG fans really wanted to see it come out in the US and Europe, so publisher XSEED Games has opted to deliver the anticipated Vita title to those regions.
You can learn more about Ragnorak Odyssey over at the PlayStation Blog, and you can also check out our recent preview. In the Blog post, they break down the classes and give you some extra gameplay info and although we don't yet have a release date, we do have a price: $39.99, and the special Mercenary Edition is $49.99.
In the comments, XSEED production assistant Brittany Avery answered a few questions, including one from someone who asked why the game was coming...because it looks like it's for "five-year-olds." Avery's response:
"We definitely feel there’s an audience for Ragnarok Odyssey- in fact, it caught our eye because of the high demand for the game! It has a monster hunting feel, which is very successful in Japan, and being the first monster hunting title on the Vita -as well as having a relation to a very popular MMO- RO has a lot of love surrounding it."
Yeah, well, that's a pretty standard feeling among the new generation of gamers. If it isn't dark and violent, they're not playing it. Yay.
