GungHo Online Entertainment America has confirmed that it will be releasing the intuitive action-role playing game (RPG) Ragnarok Odyssey throughout Europe later this month, exclusively on the PlayStation Vita. Set to be available as a digital download on the PlayStation Network, a demo version of the videogame is now available on the PlayStation Network, giving eager fans an opportunity to preview the game’s action-heavy combat ahead of its launch.
In the demo, players will be invited to test their might as a Sword Warrior, Assassin or Cleric as they take on three quests through the Idavoll Plains, MagmaCave and Thor’s Volcano. Ultimately their journey will culminate in a final showdown with the fearsome and brutal Orc King, which serves as a satisfying introduction to the SunderedLand in which mercenaries serve as adventurers for hire.
At its core an expansive, quest-based RPG, Ragnarok Odyssey expands upon the source material of the beloved Ragnarok Online universe and adds an action-packed twist. Using the videogame’s adaptable combat system, players can chain their character’s attacks both on the ground and in the air with ravaging combos and deadly blows. Scale and brute force collide in Ragnarok Odyssey – giants can literally be smashed clear across the screen and players are given the option to trade in their health points for a boost in speed and agility to tackle particularly Herculean battles.
Ragnarok Odyssey was developed by Game Arts together with GungHo Online Entertainment in Japan and will be released on 20th February 2013, by GungHo Online Entertainment America in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand exclusively as a digital download on the PlayStation Network. The videogame is rated PEGI 12 in Europe and PG in Australia and New Zealand, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Ragnarok videogame franchise.
