Cross-platform title to hit both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in Europe this Winter
Buena Park, Calif., (May 22, 2013) – GungHo Online Entertainment America, a multiplatform publisher for the online gaming community, today announced it will be publishing the upcoming action RPG title, Ragnarok Odyssey ACE, in Europe this coming winter for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems. The ultimate version of the company’s previously released title Ragnarok Odyssey, Ragnarok Odyssey ACE offers a host of new content and innovative cross-platform play, which allows both PS3 users and Vita users to play the game together via online connection.
Set within the world of Norse Mythology during the fabled Twilight of the Gods, Ragnarok Odyssey ACE builds upon the original game’s highly addictive action RPG combat and cooperative gameplay, adding in an all-new ACE skill system which gives characters extra abilities and allowing them to better customize their gameplay experience.
One key item in the game’s customization process are the all-new Halomonas Weapons, which allow players to upgrade weapon parameters, skills and even aesthetics after successfully completing certain quests within the game.
Ragnarok Odyssey ACE also offers new gameplay content, with new enemies and an all-new epilogue featuring the Yggdrasil Tower, a new area that creates random dungeons of endless variation for players to battle through with their friends online or solo with the help of AI controlled Mercenary Helpers. Players begin Ragnarok Odyssey ACE by creating an entirely personalized character from a wide range of visual options. After applying physical features, players will then select their character’s play style from a stable of six diverse job classes, including the Sword Warrior, Mage, Assassin, Hunter, Cleric and powerful Hammersmith. Upon entering the game’s open-world environment, players will be tasked with exploring a realm filled with heavy action, in which giants and humans remain in constant conflict with each other.
The game sets a mood of epic adventure thanks to a striking musical score from returning Ragnarok Odyssey composer Kumi Tanioka with a guest track written by internationally-renowned RPG veteran Nobuo Uematsu.
Ragnarok Odyssey ACE will be published in Europe by GungHo Online Entertainment America this winter. XSEED Games will publish the title in North America.
