This winter, Ragnarok Online DS is coming to North America thanks to Xseed. The portable game is based on the Ragnarok Online universe and expands it with a stand alone adventure starring Ares, an orphan who turned into an adventurer as an adult. Ares and Sierra, a girl who lost her memories, set out to save the world.
New content for Ragnarok Online fans include extra classes like the Dark Knight and Shaman.
