You Piece Together The Story In Ragnarok For PSP By Playing Multiple Perspectives

By Spencer . April 25, 2011 . 9:32am

Ragnarok: The Imperial Princess of Light and Dark takes players into the world of Ragnarok reimagined as a strategy RPG. GungHo Games added another twist, players see the storyline in pieces. Using the A.I.Z. (that stands for alternate if zapping) system you can switch perspectives and play a different route.

Bit by bit, you put the true story together by playing different episodes with various viewpoints. Apollosoft, a studio formed by ex-Flight Plan staff, developed the strategic battle system in Ragnarok: The Imperial Princess of Light and Dark.

Did you notice any extra characters? Torene, Cynthia, Adelaide, and Yuri, four previously revealed characters, are up there along with a "mysterious girl" (that’s her name as of now) in a blue dress and Baphomet.


Ragnarok: The Imperial Princess of Light and Dark comes out this fall in Japan.

    the 2D artwork looks nice. The 3D artwork….does not

      I agree. Maybe it’s for the DS and everyone has been misinformed it’s for the PSP, because the graphics look pretty poor.

    • doomspeller10

      It’s a strategy RPG after all. Ragnarok has never been about awesome graphics anyway, it’s more about anime and old-school nostalgia (that’s why I don’t play Lineage II or WoW).

        Yeah well….the 2D sprites for Ragnorok DS look way better so moot point…

    • LeonAlabard

      I agree with you. The 2D graphics of Ragnarok Violet (for IOS/Android) are better than the 3D models of the game.

      But the artwork of this game is simply awesome.

    ;–; localize?

  • Uh, flight plan, they worked with the summon night games, it will be a nice strategy game then

  • Exkaiser

    In one of those screenshots, the Monk is performing Asura Strike.

    That move is my digs, man.

  • DanteJones

    The 2D artwork feels very familiar, though I can’t quite put my finger on it. Hmm..

    • Tomatika is doing the illustrations for this game who did Eternal Poison(Poison Pink in JP), another old Flight-Plan game.

      • DanteJones

        Ah! Eternal Poison, there we go, thanks. :)

  • PrinceHeir

    lol i remember my brother playing this when it was first release on PC.

    soo many people cutting classes just to play this game :P

  • Chow

    Reminds me of the Trinity Sight System from Suikoden III.

  • Oh my goooooooood! BAPHOMET!

    Quick! Use your Fly Wings, before he summons his slave Bapho Jrs! You can’t solo MVPs!

    • You can if you have the right equips and cards on them.

  • KyoyaHibari
