XSEED, Game Import Heroes

On February 2nd, Japan got its release of Ragnarok Odyssey.  It’s an action RPG based around Norse mythology that really shows off what a PS Vita can do. The game features character customization, loads of weapons,  6 different classes and loads of fun. This is a must for people who enjoy JRPG.  Unfortunately, the game developers, Gung Ho, never intended to translate it to English and release it to America.

Fortunately, we have a dedicated company named XSEED who purely focus on translating games that were never intended to leave Japan. Xseed was founded in 2004 by former members of Square Enix USA.  They translated games for many platforms such as

  • Ys Games 
  • The Last Story (Wii)
  • Unchained Blades (3DS)
  • Many More 
I personally think it is sad to see how many Japanese games never get exported, especially of the JRPG genre. Hopefully XSEED will continue to bring us games for years and will continue to grow to bring us a larger yearly library. So don’t forget to grab your copy of Ragnarok Odyssey for the PS Vita October 18 2012.

    it is not JRPG my friend…. It’s a fast pace action orientated game. Similar to monster hunter but with a faster pace. Unless you classify MH games as JRPG which they are not.

    @AnonymousNoob, Quoting the FIRST FOUR WORDS of the SECOND SENTENCE:
    “It’s an action RPG [...]“
