Ragnarok Odyssey Ace is making the journey west this winter for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. An enhanced version of Ragnarok Odyssey, which released exclusively for Vita last year, includes new features, content, an all-new epilogue, and cross-play between systems.
Grasshopper Manufacture parent company GungHo Online will be bringing the role-playing game to Europe, while XSEED will be handling the publishing duties in North America. Marvelous USA is planning to showcase the title at E3 in just a few weeks.
"When you go in, if you just are interested in a puzzle game and you're not really looking at story or philosophy or anything like that, there is a really good puzzle game," says designer Jonathan Blow in this developer video. "But if you want to read further than that, there's other layers."
In talking about developer independence, Blow explains that "I would definitely like to make our money back on this game and I would like to make a profit on it, but it's actually not the number-one priority on it. The number-one priority is to make the best possible game that we can make that brings the most beneficial experience to the players."
I'm not sure if I was snoozing at the keyboard or what happened, but The Witness looks far prettier in motion than I had previously realized. My goodness. I'm going to get so lost in this game's open world, but that's okay.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's Revolution map pack will be free to play on Xbox 360 this weekend, Activision's Dan Amrich announced, who only confirmed the promotion for Microsoft's console.
The promotion has the content playable as a free trial, according to Amrich, so it's not to be confused with the content being a limited time free download.
Revolution, released late this past January, added the multiplayer maps Hydro, Grind, Mirage and Downhill to the fray, along with Die Rise, a new Zombies map, which impressed our own Chris Carter.
We've reached out to Activision for comment on whether or not this will hit other platforms this weekend and how exactly the promotion will work.

That's right! Seth Killian is a playable character in Divekick, the unique fighting game slated to hit the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PC later this spring. S-Kill, as he's called in the game, is one of the harder characters to master as his jump is replaced with a teleporting move instead.
Seth and Adam Heart, the lead designer on Divekick, go way back in the fighting game community, and Seth got to check out Divekick when the initial concept was being created back in the day.
"He showed me a prototype of this game a long time ago," Seth told me. "I said 'Obviously this is silly, and you're having a good time with it, but I think you're really on to something here.' This is fun and it legitimately boils down a lot of what's awesome about fighting games.
This weekend until 2:00PM Eastern on Sunday you can play an awesome first-person medieval battle game Chivalry: Medieval Warfare for free. Head on over to the Steam page to download it and start playing. If you decide you like it, you can then buy the title for only $8.49 (£6.45 in the UK), which is a heck of deal.
Fraser really dug it in his review, and I am also a big fan. The story behind it is really cool too. It started as a bunch of guys working together online to make a Half-Life mod, and now they have a full-blown retail game. Very cool.
