The popular PC MMO Ragnarok Online makes its way to the Nintendo DS by way of XSEED. They announce today that Ragnarok Online DS is coming to the DS in winter 2009.
As of now, there are 3.14 million North American registered users on Ragnarok Online. I'd be willing to bet that quite a few of them would be willing to transition over to the DS game, which is said to bring the same gameplay and exploration that the PC title has.
”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.”
You'll be able to team up with two other players wirelessly to continue on the teamwork theme that the original game is built on. XSEED says that new players can enjoy the original storyline, now optomized for a handheld platform.
I'm interested. What about you?
