Gamearts, one of the many game publishers who are looking to ride the boat of Sony’s next generation hand-held gaming console – PS Vita. Although, Gamearts has come up with a rather familiar and disputable game that they plan to release on the upcoming console. Ragnarok Odyssey, a multiplayer role playing game that allows up to four players connecting locally to play the game, explore the world, hunt enemies, quest and gameplay that takes its origins from one of the most popular MMORPG in history – Ragnarok Online.
It will feature a lot of elements from the popular online game such as monsters (like the lovable poring), basic gameplay, and job class from Ragnarok Online. The game is quest-based. Clear a quest, and you earn rewards and gain access to new quests an areas where new monsters await. The concept of the game has seen mixed reviews on how Gamearts plan to take the feel from the very successful and highly popular online game to a hand-held gaming console. However, if you are one that is still skeptical with the graphical abilities of PS Vita, then you might want to take a look at these amazing Ragnarok Odyssey screenshots taken on the PS Vita. From a Ragnarok gamer standpoint, I can see why Gravity gave the license to Gamearts for the Ragnarok title.
The game looks amazing and judging by how it appears graphically, it does have the potential to be a great game and something hand-held gamers can look out for. Also, it is not much of very different to the original game that it is based from – which is good. You are able to see the job classes intact, like that Assassin hitting the huge monster (probably ktullanux), the lovely poring on the side of that swordsman with the pike hitting an orc, the mage that has that round shield (buckler) and her mace, even the Kasa (Phoenix) and Thanatos (hopefully that is Thanatos) are still there as well.
The first graphical MMORPG was actually Neverwinter Nights which was released in 1991, you’re about ten years off the mark.
I stand corrected, but I could have sworn I got that line from the original Ragnarok Online CD I had years ago. Anyways, wouldn’t want to share fallacious info, so let me edit it.
Thanks for spotting that error of mine by the way – appreciate it.
I could see that working on the 3DS as well, but it is a pretty early Vita game so I’m sure there will be better looking titles to come.
