XSEED announces Ragnarok Odyssey Ace for 2014 release

Enhanced role-player expected to drop sometime early next year

Ragnarok Odyssey Ace is making the voyage across the Pacific early next year, XSEED has announced. The enhanced role-playing game from Lunar developer Game Arts and Puzzle & Dragons publisher GungHo Online brandishes an arsenal of fresh elements. 

One of the new additions is cross-platform play between the PlayStation 3 and Vita. While bthe game will retail for $39.99 on both platforms, first edition copies the portable variant will come tethered astride a bonus soundtrack disc, including a composition from beloved Final Fantasy songsmith Nobuo Uematsu.

Ragnarok Odyssey veterans will be able to transfer data over from the original game. That includes everything from downloadable content to character’s likeness. Curiously, apparel won’t make the transition between versions. Perhaps the folks at GungHo are a syndicate of cheeky nudists conspiring to liberate us from the shackles of clothing. 

XSEED will continue to support the title after release. The localization studio plans to provide additional content free of charge, such as the update that hit Japan this week, which features daily quests, online rankings and various bonuses. 

Ragarnok Odyssey Ace will also make the journey to Europe in 2014 sometime following the North American launch.
