Ragnarok Odyssey is being developed by Gamearts. The game features world elements from Ragnarok Online, including enemies that should be familiar to players of the online hit.
Some of the beasts in Ragnarok Odyssey are huge. One example is the Hrungnir, whose head alone is the height of a person. The game has a variety of creatures, including orcs, fire wielding beasts and chained demons.
You'll have a powerful arsenal to deal with these foes. In addition to high speed attacks and air-based attacks, you can team up with your fellow multiplayer combatants for team attacks.
Like all good Monster Hunter clones, Ragnarok Odyssey will offer four player simultaneous play. It's unclear if this is done local play or if Wi-Fi and 3G are also possible.
The game is quest-based. Clear a quest, and you earn rewards and gain access to new quests an areas where new monsters await.
Your player characters are of particular jobs, which give them unique abilities in battle. Famitsu lists six:
Uses dual swords and is strong at physical attacks.
Uses high speed attacks with its dual daggers.
Uses bows and arrows for long range attacks.
Has both physical attacks through its staff and magic attacks. Weak with defense, but its magic can attack over a range.
An attacker who's good with close attacks through his massive drill hammer. He's slow, but an order of magnitude more powerful than other characters.
Heals allies with healing magic. Uses a mace and shield for combat, and is also adept at countering.
