Ragnarok Online was the very first massively multiplayer online game I ever played. That was over a decade ago, and since then the Ragnarok franchise has taken a stab at various spin-off titles for handheld devices, including the recently released Ragnarok Odyssey. While I’m still just a noobling in the actual game, I’ve definitely had enough time to admire the beautiful Mercenary Edition.
For a mere $10 more than the standard version, the Mercenary Edition should be any Ragnarok fan or collector’s go-to purchase. The quality and value of this bundle sets the standard for affordable collector’s editions, especially compared to something like the pedestrian, overpriced Halo 4 Limited Edition.
Including the retail case as well as the larger, special edition box should also be standard, as it allows you to store the former with the rest of your collection. The latter can be displayed separately.
