Ragnarok DS Readies for North American Launch, Preorder Details Inside

Pre-Sale Program Kicks off with Exclusive In-Game Items Available for Ragnarok Online PC Players that Pre-Order and Purchase the Nintendo DS Version.

Torrance, Calif., (December 10, 2009) - XSEED Games today announced that it is preparing for the upcoming Ragnarok DS title release with an early pre-sale program that supports the game’s popular MMORPG PC counterpart, Ragnarok Online PC (iro.ragnarokonline.com).  By pre-ordering Ragnarok DS from participating retailers nationwide, Ragnarok Online PC players will be able to redeem an exclusive set of accessories to customize their online avatar, in addition to another set of exclusive items included within each retail copy of Ragnarok DS. Formerly sharing the same name, the new Nintendo DSTM game will provide players with a unique RPG experience when it officially launches in North America as Ragnarok DS in February 2010.

By pre-ordering Ragnarok DS from a participating retailer, players will receive the “Ragnarok Online Prepared for Adventure Pack” containing the following exclusive items when picking up a copy of the game:

-          Audumra’s benefit: increased experience points and damage from monsters

-          Odin Mask: additional damage against certain monsters

-          Hermode Cap: increased attack speed

-          Bijofnil’s wing decoration: chance of increasing minimum and maximum weapon attack

Additionally, included within each retail copy of Ragnarok DS will be the “Ragnarok Online Setting out on my Journey Pack” containing the following additional exclusive items:

-          Shaman earring: increases intelligence

-          Shaman ring: increases maximum HP and SP recovery

-          Shaman’s hair decoration: increased resistance to attacks

Ragnarok DS brings the same addictive gameplay of customization and exploration that has more than three million North American registered users for the PC version to Nintendo DS.

In addition to having their characters’ base levels increase, each character earns both Status and Skill Points each time they gain a level. These points can then be used by the player to customize their characters to best suit their playing style, choosing from a number of different basic job classes such as Swordsman, Thief, and Merchant, as they progress towards more advanced job classes such as Knight, Assassin, and Blacksmith.

Staying true to the community and teamwork that the original is based on, Ragnarok DS allows players to team up with two other friends wirelessly via ad-hoc or over an internet connection to take on the Tower of Mirages, which has more than 50 floors, randomly generated maps and completion conditions, and the chance to obtain rare items. Ragnarok DS offers current players of Ragnarok Online PC a chance to enjoy the same world and addictive gameplay on a portable platform, while people new to the series will enjoy the original epic storyline within an experience optimized for a handheld.

Pre-orders to reserve the “Ragnarok Online Prepared for Adventure Pack” can be made at Amazon.com, EB Games, GameStop, Game Crazy, and other participating retailers.  In addition, Gravity Interactive will be offering Ragnarok DS packages which include Kafra points.  Look for Ragnarok DS exclusively on Nintendo DS in February 2010.
