If you love RPGs and your Vita has been gathering dust lately then you are in luck. XSEED has released Ragnarok Odyssey on the PS Vita today. The game has some serious predigree to, since it was developed by Game Arts, the same people who brought us the classic Lunar and Grandia series.
After entering the world and creating a character from over 20,000 possible combinations based on customizable physical features, players are given the choice of one of six specialized job classes before entering the open world where plenty of real-time, action-based combat awaits. Characters can chain together devastating combo attacks both on the ground and in the air thanks to the game’s extremely versatile combat system.
You can now pick up either the standard version of the game at an MSRP of $39.99, or the deluxe ’Mercenary Edition’ with extras including a randomized pack of 10 Monster Cards from the over 50 available in-game, a soundtrack CD containing 32 songs, and a 96-page full color ‘Mercenary Guide’ featuring a collection of art, quests, maps and boss strategies, for an MSRP of $49.99. A digital download version of the standard game ($39.99) is available on the PlayStation®Network as well.
Mike's first experience with a console was in the early 80’s when his dad brought home an Atari 400. It wasn’t the greatest gaming machine at the time but it did play a crude version of Pac-Man and it had a keyboard. But, Mike's love for videogames really got started when his friend invited him over to his house to show off his newly acquired NES with Super Mario Bros. Mike had never experienced a game like that before and his friend actually convinced him that jumping into one of the pits would give him a powerup. It was a cruel joke and Mario lept to his death. But from that moment on Mike was hooked.
Mike was originally brought onto the Gaming Trend staff as a PSP editor starting with the god awful Major League Baseball 2K8. Thankfully, these days he reviews much better titles. He also spends an obscene amount of time playing The Lord of the Rings Online with his Dwarf Rune Keeper named McLush and his Warden named Hanton on the Elendilmir server.
