Ragnarok Odyssey Ace Reaches North America On April Fools’ Day

By Ishaan . February 19, 2014 . 10:00am

Ragnarok Odyssey Ace, the updated version of Ragnarok Odyssey, is headed to the PlayStation 3 and Vita on April 1st in North America, Xseed announced this morning.

 

The PS3 version of the game will be available at “participating retailers” and through the PlayStation Store, Xseed said, and will cost $39.99. Meanwhile, all launch units of the Vita version at retailers will come with a bonus soundtrack CD containing 25 tracks.

 

The Vita version of the game will cost $39.99 as well, although if you download it off the PlayStation Store, it’ll cost $34.99.

 

Ragnarok Odyssey Ace includes new content over the original game, such as the Tower of Yggdrassil, a dungeon that changes each time players enter it. Additionally, the game will now include an “ACE Skill” system that enables them to unlock new moves. Also on the list of features is the ability to hire AI mercenaries, of which there are a dozen to choose from. You can pick two to fight alongside you. Finally, Ace will also include new enemies, items and bosses.

 

If you own Ragnarok Odyssey already, you’ll be able to transfer your character’s name, face and job class (but not clothing) to the new game, as well as weapon cards and monster cards. Additionally, DLC acquired for the original game can be re-download into Ace for free.

 

Below are the PlayStation 3 screenshots of Ragnarok Odyssey Ace.

      Wasn’t it suppose to be released on March 18?

      • Dark Lord Ash

        As far as what gamestop goes it was originally for the 18 of this month. Then it got pushed for the 11 of next month. Now this. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little mad right now.

    • Tinye

      There was no supposed to, from my understanding, there was no release date announced until now. If you’re going off any retailers they always put up random dates

  • BizarreJelly

    Finally a date! A date forever shrouded in doubt but a date none the less. Been waiting for this a while, was gonna get the Vita original then they announced this.

  • Flandre Scarlet

    So the Amazon date was a placeholder? Good to know, that’ll stagger my releases a bit better.

  • ShinTekk

    I feel a bad premonition about the release date being on April’s Fools, but what the heck, it’s Xseed and they’re not the kinds to troll the gamers… I hope…

  • Go2hell66

    its been a looooooooooooooooooooong wait

  • Kornelious

    April Fools day huh…….Well this could go wrong in so many ways, lol
    (At least that gives me more $ to get some other stuff :) )

  • DemonShadowX

    Nice! Maybe I’ll pick it up depending on how my wallet has survived it’s abuse from February and March.

    • ninjabart122

      So many games within the span of a few months that i can’t even hope to spend a sizable amount of time on each one, let alone have enough left to get all the games.

  • tubers

    I’m getting this for nostalgia and with a slight hope of an actual console sequel.. probably not day one tho.

    • Ferrick

      isn’t RO:ACE on ps3 as well ?

  • http://danierc-polloconpapas.tumblr.com/ Eduardo Rocha

    Oh, so 02/18/14 was just a place-holder?:C

    • http://so-very.me/ Jenny

      so is 3/11

      • http://danierc-polloconpapas.tumblr.com/ Eduardo Rocha

        That’s sa :c I was looking for to going on the 25th and pick up Tales of Symphonia and Ragnarok.

  • Kaitsu

    Of course they’d change it to April 1st. :C
    We’ve been fooled before, it was the day to be fooled. But, I’m glad it’s coming out.

  • Land of Green Pasture

    meanwhile in Europe…..
    a day passed

  • KyoyaHibari

    Alright, gives me more time to prepare :D

  • Xerain

    So any word on JP Voice acting DLC? Need to decide if I’m getting the US version or the Asia version.

    • serpentear

      Is there any significant difference between us and asian version?

      • Dark Lord Ash

        Just the voice overs, they’re in japanese. Everything else is in English..

        • serpentear

          Huh…neat. thanks!

      • 8ettieP46e .

        US version does NOT come with the DLC from the previous version. You can only get it if you bought it previously or will buy it.

    • fireguardiancoty

      US obviously

  • Kazekage Gaara

    =_= hmmm……

  • xXDGFXx

    I could seriously go for a lance/spear weapon in this game… or a gun… Screw it, just give me the original Ragnarok experience T-T

  • Crevox

    Would play, but can’t warrant paying for the game again

  • Earthjolly

    SO what is this game. Someone please :)

    • TrueDefault

      It’s similar to Monster Hunter/Toukiden with faster gameplay I guess.

  • Rinkawa Erion

    It’s nice you guys got a release date. While Here on the R3 ver, we have no idea when or whether we’ll be getting the 1.10 (and above) update at all…

  • 8ettieP46e .

    I dont know if this is true for the JP or Asia version, since the wiki says their ACE version comes with the previous DLC. But the US version does not come with the previous DLC. You can DL the DLC only if you had previously bought it before.

  • Aqua King

    I don’t understand. This has been delayed twice now? Why announce it to release 02/18/14?
