The more games for the Vita, the better.
It's already available in Japan but thanks to XSEED Games, the popular and well-received action/RPG, Ragnorak Odyssey , will come to North American Vitas "later this year."
Developed by famed role-playing developer Game Arts ( Lunar , Grandia ), the game did pretty well in the Land of the Rising Sun. The setting is the Ragnorak Online universe where humans and giants do battle after the world's ancient Gods have fallen. Based on Norse mythology (as you might've guessed from the title), players will explore and discover new areas, all the while having fun with an "extremely versatile combat system." Said XSEED Executive Vice President Ken Berry:
"Ragnarok Odyssey is an amazing game that players have recognized through its position as one of the best-selling PS®Vita titles in Japan. To be able to offer this game, which has been the most requested title by our fans for some time now, is very rewarding and speaks to the level of quality we are committed to delivering to the players."
Yeah, this one could be great for the niche – albeit highly vocal – crowd. And seeing Game Arts makes me all sorts of nostalgic…their packaging was always so sweet. Basically, they forced you to buy a Collector's Edition of sorts but I never cared.
