PS3 and PS Vita update to offer cross-platform play.

Ragnarok Odyssey Ace will launch for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in North America and Europe this winter, courtesy of XSEED Games and GungHo Online Entertainment.

The enhanced version of Ragnarok Odyssey offers new features and online cross-play between the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita versions.

New features include:

  • All-new ACE skill system which gives characters extra abilities and allowing them to better customize their gameplay experience.
  • All-new Halomonas Weapons, which allow players to upgrade weapon parameters, skills and even aesthetics after successfully completing certain quests within the game.
  • New gameplay content, with new enemies and an all-new epilogue featuring the Yggdrasil Tower, a new area that creates random dungeons of endless variation for players to battle through with their friends online or solo with the help of AI controlled Mercenary Helpers.

And here’s a quick rundown of the game:

Players begin Ragnarok Odyssey Ace by creating an entirely personalized character from a wide range of visual options. After applying physical features, players will then select their character’s play style from a stable of six diverse job classes, including the Sword Warrior, Mage, Assassin, Hunter, Cleric and powerful Hammersmith.

Upon entering the game’s open-world environment, players will be tasked with exploring a realm filled with heavy action, in which giants and humans remain in constant conflict with each other. The game sets a mood of epic adventure thanks to a striking musical score from returning Ragnarok Odyssey composer Kumi Tanioka with a guest track written by internationally-renowned RPG veteran Nobuo Uematsu.

Ragnarok Odyssey Ace was previously dated for August 29 in Japan.
