    What are you talking about? I love 30 minute introductions filled with talking.

    Well, I wouldn't say that's the reason... It's just that it's aimed at RO players, and RO isn't very popular in NA. I hope they're not expecting good sales from this one.

    It's actually quite popular worldwide. Even in NA I believe. Private servers and original servers have many players from NA playing on them. But what they don't see is that, possibly a lot of the NA players which play RO doesn't have a DS.

    Unrelated, I really liked that roguelike DOS game called valhalla or ragnarok. whenever I search for that game, i generally get results for ragnarok online....

    someone needs to make DOS games work on the ds, outside of ds2win...

    I love ragnaroc online and at last I could play it on my ds...

    (But I know japanese and I could read it...partially...)
    Now I must find a wi-fi connection for some online modes [​IMG]

    This game looks pretty nice.... I'm looking forward to it [​IMG] But I would prefer localization of some other quality titles like Inazuma Elven and the Tales of games....

    @dongdrian: Nice new name....

    Xseed can translate this but not Game Center CX 2?
    They should be able to do both >.<

    I played RO back in its free beta days.
    VEry very slow progression.
    Though the music was top notch.

    I've played a little bit of the Japanese one and it stays true to most of the RO things but actually gives it a bit of a story for once.
    Also it should have local and online play I think. Just not Online MMO play.
    Atleast I think anyway, I never got far enough to find out.

    The game should make some decent sales in the US I predict.
