As Siliconera reported yesterday, Ragnarok Odyssey will be available in Hong Kong with English text on August 16.
A representative from Xseed confirmed that the Hong Kong version of Ragnarok Odyssey will use Xseed’s translation. However, the Hong Kong release will be different than the North American one. DLC packs like the Epic Weapons and Sograt Desert packs will be released as downloadable content instead of being on the cart. A representative from Xseed said, "we should be releasing the DLC" and "it will come as DLC. It won’t ship with the game like the version that’s coming out in Hong Kong"
The good news is all of the DLC that’s free in Japan will be free in North America too. Game Arts made a couple of content updates like adding extra quests, a Dokuro, and a hat where Forte sits on your characters head. There are a few paid content packs like a four hat pack (hanging cat, an apple with an arrow through it called "archer’s proof," rabbit ears, and goat horns) for 100 yen.
Unfortunately, we do not have a release date for Ragnarok Odyssey in North America, but we’ll keep bugging Xseed for more information about the title.
