Ragnarok Online DS retains an online component

ro.jpgGravity Games is scaling down the online part in Ragnarok Online DS, but you can still connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi for co-op play. Ragnarok Online DS has a 50 level randomized dungeon called the Tower of Mirages for parties to brave. The single player story puts players in charge of Ares (protagonist) and Sierra (heroine) with touch screen short cuts. For instance, activating Magnum Break is as simple as drawing a circle. That’s new and so are two job classes. Concept art for the Dark Knight and Shaman is over at Game|Watch.


Japan gets Ragnarok Online DS on December 18 and no release date for North America or Korea has been announced. While I wouldn’t expect a launch date for the USA yet, I’m surprised this hasn’t been simultaneously announced in South Korea where Ragnarok Online was created. They have localized Nintendo DS games there too.

    Glad to see that they’re making use of WFC.

    And those sprites look huge.

    I hope the huge sprites are just for demonstrating the game since it’s the first batch of information released. There’s a small camera zoom button at the bottom left, so there should be an option to play it zoomed out.

    I’m so going to love this game, played RO when it was released many years ago for several years. Hope they have a few character slots (really happy when I found out FFCC:Ring of Fates had 8) so I can try different builds and the many different classes in the game. =)

    Beta tested, and played retail of Rag online for a few years. Always thought it would be more fun if you could do a single player experience. It is the only MMO I have ever played that actually ruined a relationship I had with someone. Mwa ha ha.
