GungHo Online Entertainment has released the opening video of its upcoming PlayStation Vita action RPG, Ragnarok Odyssey.
Check it out here:
There’s another trailer recently released as well. This one has some overlapping bits with the Tokyo Game Show trailer, but also contains new material.
The game will be developed by Game Arts (Grandia) and overseen by GungHo and Gravity, makers of the highly successful MMORPG Ragnarok Online.
The game is said to be something of a “hunting action RPG,” which has led some to compare it to God Eater and Monster Hunter. Multiplayer combat will be a huge draw, though it’s not yet known if it will allow online play or be limited only to local friends. The game also sounds like it has a bit of Phantasy Star Online in it, as its mission-based structure allows players to open up new quests as they clear old ones out of the queue.
Ragnarok Odyssey will hit Japanese Vitas on February 2nd, though a North American release is questionable at this time.
