Just to let you all know. Every other source I have checked (Gamestop, Newegg, Bestbuy etc.) is showing the release date of this game as 9/11/2012 . I do not believe Xseed has officially posted anything about this, as I have checked their forums, but be aware that this date is not solid and most likely will change. If I get an official response from Xseed saying when the date really is, I will be sure to post/link here.
http://www.siliconera.com/2012/08/02/cant-wait-for-ragnarok-odyssey-you-can-get-an-english-version-on-august-16/ siliconera has asked xseed about a release date for NA and they don't have a set release date for Ragnarok Odyssey yet so I doubt they will answer you. The only english version of Ragnarok being released so far will come out Aug 16 in China.
I don't understand the discrepancy between the posted dates. If an English version is available Aug 16th in China, why an October 16th release date? Seriously...... It must be a server issue for on-line play. The Vita has been plagued by false release dates from the start. Not to mention October is now a month for like 80 Vita releases.
Xseed still has not confirmed a release date at all, however, it does look like the other retailers have pushed out the release date to 10/16/2012. To be honest, there are so many games coming out in October already and IF this is actually released at the specified date, I will most likely be playing something else.
There actually IS an English version that was released today(Chinese + English version). I Ordered mine there and as some of you may already know; The PSVita is not region locked. I snagged mine over at www.play-asia.com .
This copy includes the DLC that has been released (Integrated into the physical card).
So for those who simply cannot wait, this version should work for you.
I don't know whether I'm tired of waiting for games like this and Tales of Innocence R and all the other amazing ones that have never shown up here in the US... or just getting used to it. Either way, I haven't even turned on my vita in about a month.
Does anybody know if the English version will have Japanese subtitles? And if not does anyone know if I would be able to play online with someone if I have the Japanes version and they have the English version(I doubt it)?
Yeah... even though it says it's going to be released on the 30th on the page for the item... from my pre-order that I placed months ago for it, the delivery estimate is the 16th of october lol I'm sure it's just a page glitch...
