On the busiest release day of the month. My pockets has just left me.

I'm happy this finally has a release date and the 30th will be a very busy day for me. What a wonderful time to be a gamer.

Oh man I was all ready to get it on the 16th, the original (already delayed) release date...

I don't understand why they have to keep pushing it back even just for a few weeks

Their has never been a confirmed US launch date. That was all speculation. I have been following this for some time now, and have found that date before. However no one ever knew if it was concrete or not. And now, we can see that it wasn't lol.

Anyways its about time the game has a date. Only a little over 2 weeks :D

@Spenok
Well there was no official announce date for US but it shouldn't have been so late when the Asian version was all translated and ready.

I know they tried to fit DLC content on disk but who the hell cares just release the damn game and let us download the dlc's like other regions instead of having to wait.

Anyway doesn't matter now but I just hope these translation companies would just get the game out faster instead of keep dragging it on.

Ragnarok Odyssey was developed by Game Arts, creators of the Grandia and Lunar series, together with GungHo Online Entertainment in Japan. GungHo Online Entertainment America will publish Ragnarok Odyssey in Europe later this year.

Glad to see Ragnarok Online characters in this specially the ninja.

Gamearts also developed Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
miyamoto  +   639d ago
oh that's great!

Back in the 1990's, Gamearts used to be Square & Enix's rival when it comes to great RPGs

Ragnarok Online by Gungho was as huge as Warcraft and Counterstrike in SE Asia back then

These guys know how to make great RPGs

Well, to be fair it wasn't developed by them solely. (I swear that word looks misspelled, but I guess you cant argue with dictionary.com lol)

Sora and some people within the Nintendo umbrella had input as well.

So, are we sure there is going to be an EU release? Where did you see that information?
miyamoto  +   639d ago
its in the official press release

http://www.joystiq.com/2012...

Ragnarok Odyssey hits the Vita on October 30 in the US, running $40 for the standard version, via retail or download. The Mercenary Edition, which includes a pack of 10 random Monster Cards, the soundtrack and a 96-page Mercenary Guide, slides in at $50.

Ragnarok Odyssey came out in Japan in February and has sold more than 100,000 units online and at retail there. Yeah, that's a lot of monsters.

100,000 Japanese gamers are a lot of peeps to play online with.

Yeh looking for that also. And if they will release the Mercenary edition over here. Might just decide to import the U.S. version though if nothing is announced soon.

I'm so glad to see an RPG coming to my Vita! Get in my Vita Ragnarok Odyssey!
Fullmetalevolust  +   639d ago
The wait is gruesome but the rewards will be sweet. I can't wait to play online and buddy up with other vita players to kill baddies and monsters! Most anticipated Vita title this year.

Why, why, why would they release this on the 30th... AC Liberation, and AC3 are releasing on that day. This puts me in a predicament :/
belac09  +   639d ago
also ZOE hd is out on the 30th.

October is vita month baby :D
KangarooSam  +   639d ago
Correction: October 30th is Vita day lol
Godchild1020  +   639d ago
No, October is Vita's month. There's a game releasing or have released every week for this month. While every game so far hasn't been for everyone, no one can say and mean there hasn't been one.

I bought a game every week for the last 3 weeks and the next 3 weeks coming. Not to mention the 20th of November.

Ragnarok Odyssey+Ass Creeds Liberation+dokuro+orgarhythm+S ilent hill:BoM+Smart As+Street FighterxTekken+Need For Speed:MW

Except there were no game releases for Vita last week. And Doctor Who and Sunflowers this week won't exactly win game of the year lol.

I do agree that it's the best month so far. I'll be picking up Ragnarok Odyssey, Assassin's Creed Liberation, and Need for Speed: Most Wanted. Not to mention PSASBR next month. It just seems like a dry spell until the 30th, is all.

Last week New Little King's Story on the 2nd of October. While it's not the Wii Version, nor did it get a box release, it was still a game that was released last week.

This week was Spy Hunter, I give it a 7 and it has replay value. Retro City Rampage is also another game to be released for the vita (among other consoles and others to come). A release non the less and it is Cross Buy.

Next week is Silent Hill and maybe some Downloadable titles.

On the 23rd you have Street Fighter X Tekken and zero escape virtue's last reward.

The last week is the best.

I'm getting my weeks confused, my bad. Point is, there aren't any real AAA games until the end of the month. Unless you consider SF and Zero Escape. But still, end of the month.

How long does this game last ? As in , how many hours to finish it ?
bakasora  +   639d ago
I played the asia-english version. I say don't get your hope too high..
3-4-5  +   638d ago
good to know. Was it enjoyable though?
