Ragnarok Online DS coming to English Users


XSEED has teamed up with developer GungHo Works to bring the Nintendo DS version of popular 2D online game Ragnarok Online to North America this winter. English speaking Ragnarok Online fans rejoice!

Losing the massively multiplayer aspects of the PC version but retaining a lot of the look and feel, Ragnarok Online DS is more of a traditional action RPG. The player takes on the role of the orphan Ares, who heads out to seek his fortune. He runs into a young girl with mysterious powers who has lost her memory, which pretty much covers all the standard RPG conventions. You still change job classes, gain levels, enhance your armor and weapons, and occasionally team with other players for wireless battles, but otherwise it sounds like a pretty standard RPG with Ragnarok trappings.

“We could not be more pleased to be involved in bringing such a well-known and beloved series on the PC to a handheld platform,” said Jun Iwasaki, President of XSEED Games. “Ragnarok Online DS stays true to the original while adding elements to optimize the experience on the Nintendo DS.”

Look for Ragnarok Online DS on the Nintendo DS this winter.
