Ragnarok Online Returns to Portables

April 20, 2011   ·   0 Comments




Ragnarok Online, the anime-influenced PC MMORPG that’s been chugging along worldwide since its initial debut in 2002, is making a second return to portable systems thanks to GungHo Online Entertainment, the game’s Japanese service provider.

Ragnarok: Hikari to Yami no Koujo, a 100-percent original game, is currently under development for the PSP in Japan. The makers: Apollosoft and Chime, a pair of independent firms mostly composed of ex-staff from Summon Night creators Flight Plan. (Their first game, Blue Roses, was released by NIS for the PSP last year in Japan, but failed to make it over to America.)

The last time GungHo brought Ragnarok to consoles, it was in the form of Ragnarok DS, a single-player version of the online experience released in the States by XSEED in early 2010. This new Ragnarok, however, isn’t based on the MMO at all — it’s a strategy RPG that takes place in the same universe as the main game, and judging by early screens, it appears to be a pretty standard isometric-view SRPG.
