Ragnarok Online Is Coming To The Nintendo DS
XSeed games has just announced that the epic, mythological Norse battle to end all battles will be coming to the Nintendo DS in the winter of 2009. With more than 3.11 million North American gamers currently getting in their level-grinding fun with the PC version of Ragnarok, XSeed figured that the game could do just as well on the Nintendo DS.
”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.”
In development by GungHo Studios, Ragnarok Online DS offers gamers the same great gameplay features from the original PC version, yet refined for portable play. Players can customize their character, upgrade their weapons and retrieve effect cards to add special attributes to their weapons. There will be several character classes to choose from and multiplayer options that support up two additional friends to wirelessly tag along and help you storm towers. And let’s not forget that all of this is set against an epic storyline, which is the very thing that made the franchise popular in the first place.
In case you forgot, Ragnarok Online DS is due out this winter. You can learn more by visiting the Official XSeed Website. For more gaming news, info and updates, be sure to stay tuned in with Blend Games.
