'Ragnarok Odyssey ACE' (ALL) Announced - Screens

An action-heavy RPG set in the lush landscape of the familiar Ragnarok Online universe, Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is a fast-paced game with a heavy emphasis on melee combat.

Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is a new title in the Ragnarok Odyssey action RPG franchise that brings players cross-platform play between PS3 and PS Vita as well as rich new content to explore.

The game brings a new Tower of Yggdrasil dungeon that creates random dungeons with different rooms and enemy placement, an enhanced battle system with new ACE skills, and a plethora of new bosses, items and features. Players of the original Ragnarok Odyssey will be able to transfer their character’s basic physical features such as name, face and job class (but not clothing), as well as weapon and monster cards (cards equipped to clothing or acquired via NEAR will not transfer over). Any additional DLC acquired can also be transferred by re-downloading it from the PlayStation Store.

XSEED Games confirmed plans to release additional game content free of charge following the game’s launch in North America. Released this week in Japan, the version 1.10 update will be added to the North American version of the game after launch, and adds a host of online features including daily quests, online rankings, log-in bonuses, random card draws which are redeemed by use of special items, and special rare random card draws. These features and more will be incorporated post-launch into the North American version of the game for an enhanced online experience on both PS3 and PS Vita.

Key Features:

  • Ragnarok Odyssey is back with tons of new content: With additional story elements, huge new bosses, uncharted areas, fresh weapons and much more, Ragnarok Odyssey ACE goes well beyond an extended edition as the game has evolved exponentially.
  • Enhanced battle mechanics for more customization and firepower : Weapons can be customized in both strength and appearance, and the addition of new job-specific ACE skills ensures that players have the tools necessary to take on the more powerful giants, dragons, and trickster spirits.
  • Create a battle party even in single-player mode: With the new mercenary system, players can hire their own mercenaries to help take on the toughest bosses without having to find players online for aid.
  • A constantly evolving experience, both online and off: The addition of the Tower of Yggdrasil creates a unique experience each time by featuring randomly generated levels, and post-launch updates will offer new online quests and other fresh content.

Both versions of Ragnarok Odyssey ACE will ship for an MSRP of $39.99, but the PS Vita version of the game will ship with a bonus soundtrack CD containing 25 songs with all launch copies.
