GungHo Online Entertainment America Confirms Ragnarok Odyssey to Release on February 20th on the PlayStation®Store in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Demo Version Out Today

Fans in Europe, Australia and New Zealand Can Download a Demo of the Acclaimed Action RPG ahead of the Game’s Launch Later this Month

PRESS RELEASE: Buena Park, Calif., (February 6, 2013) – GungHo Online Entertainment America, a multiplatform publisher for the online gaming community, today confirmed that it will be releasing the intuitive action RPG hack and slash title Ragnarok Odyssey on February 20th in Europe, Australia and New Zealand exclusively on the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system as a digital download on the PlayStation®Network for a price of €29.99. A demo version of the game is available today on the PlayStation Network, giving eager fans an opportunity to preview the game’s action-heavy combat ahead of its launch. Additionally, fans can check out the game’s all-new website at www.ro-vita.com.

In the demo, players will be invited to test their might as a Sword Warrior, Assassin or Cleric as they take on three quests through the Idavoll Plains, Magma Cave and Thor’s Volcano. Ultimately their journey will culminate in a final showdown with the fearsome and brutal Orc King, which serves as a satisfying introduction to the Sundered Land in which mercenaries serve as adventurers for hire.

At its core an expansive, quest-based RPG, Ragnarok Odyssey expands upon the source material of the beloved Ragnarok Online universe and adds an action-packed twist. Using the game’s adaptable combat system, players can chain their character’s attacks both on the ground and in the air with ravaging combos and deadly blows. Scale and brute force collide in Ragnarok Odyssey – giants can literally be smashed clear across the screen and players are given the option to trade in their health points for a boost in speed and agility to tackle particularly Herculean battles.

Ragnarok Odyssey was developed by Game Arts together with GungHo Online Entertainment in Japan and will be released on February 20 by GungHo Online Entertainment America in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand exclusively as a digital download on the PlayStation Network. The game is rated PEGI 12 in Europe and PG in Australia and New Zealand.
