XSEED Games has announced the launch date for the enhanced re-release of 2012’s monster-slaying title on the PlayStation Vita, Ragnarok Odyssey ACE–only this time it comes in on both the Vita and PlayStation 3. The game is now slated for release on April 1 of this year. They also released a new a trailer for the game which you can check out below.
ACE takes the original Odyssey’s core gameplay and expands on it dramatically. The first chapter alone introduces a buffet of new features, and the game’s former ending is now its midpoint. The first new features are right there in the character creation screen, which now offers even more options for customization (including eight brand-new voices, four each for male and female). For solo players, ACE offers a dozen elite AI mercenaries, any two of whom the player can recruit for a given mission (and one of whom happens to sound a lot like me). For multiplayer, each class has several new job-specific powers, called ACE Skills, which enhance characters’ roles as team players. Clerics, for example, can now generate a persistent, movable healing aura. (Speaking of multiplayer, ACE supports cross-play; PS3 and Vita players can play together at will, with no extra steps required.) ACE also introduces a new special weapon type, known as Halomonas weapons, which grow in power as the characters do.
Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is available for pre-order on Amazon:
