The Next Vita Game From The Ragnarok Odyssey Studio, Dokuro, Set For July

By Spencer . April 26, 2012 . 10:05pm

dokuro1Game Arts, the developer behind Ragnarok Odyssey, is working on their second PlayStation Vita title. Dokuro is quite different since it’s described as a gimmick action game where you help a princess escape.


The hero in the game isn’t your typical hero either. He’s a grunt who has a change of heart when he sees the princess crying. As a skeleton he can double jump. Tap the screen and you can change into a dashing hero who can carry the princess.


Dokuro will go on sale on July 5 and it’s less than your typical Vita title. The game will cost 2,400 yen ($29) in stores or 1,800 yen ($22) as a PlayStation Network download.

    from enemy grunt to protagonist?

    thats quite a change of heart.

  • brian yep

    Does this make anyone else think of Escape Plan?
    Could be just because they’re both on PSV.

    • Shadow_Raskolnik

      Ico was the first thing that came to my mind.

  • XiaomuArisu

    From Zero to Hero!

  • SuperSailorV

    Nearly any Vita title now is a day one purchase…

    The premise and art style pique my interest, though, so I’ll probably pick it up for that and not for the sake of weakening the blow of this software drought.

    Ok so now can we get Ragnarok Odyssey over here?

  • Some company needs to man up and localize all this stuff~.

  • thebanditking

    Looks awesome, such a shame that now I have to not only beg for localization but a physical release as well…..this is going to get old REAL fast. 

    • Göran Isacson

       Mark my words, it’s already gotten old. I just don’t think there’s any use in holding out for a physical release, the biggest chance you have is if they release it in some sort of combination-pack. This game just looks too small in scope to get a physical disk: exactly the kind of game low-cost, low-risk digital downloads were made for.

  •  So we can’t even import this one because it has no physical. One account restriction be damned!

    What I found most interesting on this article is the fact that the advertisements bit below it point to Dokuro-chan, lol.
