Gungho announces Ragnarok Online for DS, among other things

From what I gather from this poorly translated Famitsu article, Gungho Online Entertainment recently held a business meeting in Tokyo, wherein they announced 3 new games coming to Nintendo's dual-screen über-handheld. The most important of these announcements, in my humble opinion, is that a certain spritely, Korean MMO darling will make its way to the DS sometime next year.

If you were thinking Maple Story, then I'm glad to disappoint. Details are unbearably scant about Ragnarok Online DS, with absolutely mention of plot details or WiFi capabilities. Are DS users going to be able to play RO as an MMORPG, or will this be a traditional, single-player spin-off of the Ragunaroku-verse? Also, will anyone go to jail this time?

As if you haven't spruced your DS enough, also discussed was Aquazone: Saltwater Fishes, in which you raise and play with a digital aquarium of tropical fish. Why they haven't named it Fishez, I have no idea.

The last game in Gungho's DS trilogy is being spearheaded by celebrity florist Shogo Karyiazaki. While it took a while for my poor Western brain to grasp the concept of "celebrity florist," it appears that Karyiazaki-san is one of the richest and most sucessful businessmen in Japan. In the creatively-titled Flower Arrangement DS, players will ... arrange flowers.

Check the gallery for some screenshots and hit the jump for the most awkard press release I've ever seen. Ragnarok is one of the most popular MMOs ever created, especially everywhere east of, say, Austria, so I'm sure its going to move a lot of units. But will you guys be picking this one up?
