    MapleStory DS (Korean:??? ??? DS, working title) is an upcoming Nintendo DS adaptation of the original MMORPG game for Windows called MapleStory. It is currently under development by Nexon in cooperation with Nintendo. The Korean release date is set for sometime in 2008. The game is also expected to be available overseas at a later date.

    The game was announced at E3 2006. On January 9, 2007, Nexon and the newly established Nintendo of Korea showcased MapleStory DS for the first time, releasing a trailer for the game. The game was first projected to be released in September 2007.

    MapleStory DS has been confirmed to not be an MMO. In an interview with the manager of international business development, Stephen Lee, Lee explained that the upcoming game is simply an action RPG game based on the PC version. Lee explained that there will be limited online features, but the game will focus on the single-player aspect.


    Ragnarok DS:

    Ragnarok Online DS is a game based on the MMORPG Ragnarok Online, and is scheduled to be released sometime in 2008.

    GungHo Online Entertainment, Inc., the company that hosts the Japanese server of Ragnarok Online, announced it will expand its business for video game consoles, and Ragnarok is the second of 3 games for Nintendo DS to be released by them, along with Aqua Zone DS and Flower Arrangement DS.

    The massively multiplayer features of the original will not be present in this version, though online facilities in some form will be available.

    Meh, I'm only interested in Ragnarok. So far it looks great [​IMG] . I hope it's an mmorpg but lag would be an issue though. They can probably make an enlarged ram pack or something for that.

    Maybe it's just me but there are only one Maply Story screenshot loaded?

    Hmm, any information on release date? I can't decide which one I'd pick. So I'll give both a go. If English version ever get released.

    I really doubt they would lag online... There were online games when we only had dial-up, let alone Wireless B. I want to try Ragnarok DS.

    I don't even know if Nintendo's Wi-Fi service would allow for a MMORPG.

    and other for play
    if you dont do this

    I'm glad there's still life to these ones after being announced for so long.
    However, the screens for Ragnarok DS look like mock-up still. The status bars/info are too small to be of use and it just looks like a PC screenshot cropped to fit.

    Maplestory DS: Out in Korea, not the real game, but demo.
    Just note that the first release of Maplestory DS will be in Korean. American version of course will have to wait, unless someone makes a language patch.
    There is NO Wifi, or multiplayer. Much like crappy Single player of the MMORPG, Maplestory. Top screen used for usual use, Bottom screen used for map. Stylus not required, most of the time you use the D-Pad and buttons(L,R,B,A, etc.)
    -Source: I was in Korea not long ago, visited local game store. Since i knew Korean, i understood most of the game play, But im going to be honest, the demo SUCKED.

    Ragnarok DS: Looks pretty fake too me since it started. I could be wrong.

    STOP WITH THE BULLSHIT, THEY WERE ALL PROVEN FAKE LONG AGO, STOP HOLDING ON TO YOUR MMO ON HANDHELDS IDEALS AND WAIT 'TIL 2010 WHEN NINTENDO PRETTY MUCH CLEARLY STATED THAT THEY WOULD MOVE TO ACCOMODATE MMOs ON HANDHELDS.

    In short, these will NEVER HAPPEN, and MSDS has been DROPPED by Nexon LONG AGO. Ragnarok DS is a mixture of rumors and the real ndsRO.

    MSDS has been proven that it's still being worked on from the April 2008 Nexon interview by Gamasutra.

    pretty damn obvious they wouldn't be mmo lol... they wouldn't be able to make it mmo even if they tried, i don't think any handheld would be capable of that
