Ragnarok Odyssey Director On How Hunting Games Can Be More Popular In The West

Siliconera: "When Capcom brought Monster Hunter to PSP they started an ad-hoc hunting game craze in Asia, but this phenomenon hasn’t caught on in the West. What would make hunting games, like Ragnarok Odyssey, more popular here? We asked the game’s director, Kazuhiro Irie."

Sometimes it's just the lack of companies bringing such games over. :/ For one thing ad-hoc didn't catch on to well (namely ad-hoc party) because you had to be connected to the router; though you could do the 360 wifi "trick" which also helped to but most didn't know that. So mainly the main thing was that ad-hoc party just wasn't beneficial for a lot of people.

Given the way the Vita is now I think both RO and MH would be far more successful mainly because people won't have to jump through hoops.

Looking forward to this one. I will likely pick it up on the weekend its released.
Looking forward to the data when PSV games flow into the market place similarly how PSP games are introduced today.

i wish this would come out already in the US.. It was a launch title in japan so im sure its not perfect but i still think its fun.. How hard is it to release it here??? China got it with English

It wasn't a launch title in Japan. Vita came out in December in Japan, this game came out in February.

Xseed is a small company who probably isn't using the same translation that Hong Kong got. I could be wrong on that, but they usually do their own stuff. What's likely going on is the same thing that nailed Grand Knights History, some things with the online interface. Getting these games to work with servers in a different country isn't always as simple as it sounds. :)

Looking forward to the game.

Sorry.. Meant launch "window" title.. still, its taking a really long time to release & the newer games soon to follow will be in much btr condition due to more development time & comfort with mechanics.. I just dont want it to feel limited or dated after playing the other games coming out right before it.. Launch window titles should be localized within 3 months of release in my opinion

capcom is doing all of these things with Monster Hunter tri Ultimate(at least they seem to be)

Can't wait...>.<;;;
