    The point of the DS is to be mobile..Whats the point if you have to stay home/hotspot just to play it?

    no it isnt... check the interfase in the 2 other images and you will notice it doesnt look like that... and actually since the game says 1-3 players i doubt you can play like that.

    I really cannot believe that this is will be a fully playable MMORPG. I played RO for some time, and since my PC to that time wasnt able
    to handle a smooth graphic with more than 50 players on screen, i really cannot believe how the little DS cpu could handle that.

    Also a very high amount of RAM is needed for MMO games. The only thing i can imagine is something like a 4-16 player Online Multiplayer
    Mode through a Coop-story. MMO like on PC? Never!

    ragnarokDS being an mmorpg is just assumptions based on the original game being an mmorpg.
    anyway, what i think they'll do is using the existing content (character designs, equipment, maps, NPC's) but adapt them for single player use.
    and then add much more storyline/quest content.

    also, this game will probably be able to pull off great graphics.
    since characters use 2D sprites, they can focus all 3D processing on the scenery, which is in a style that would work out quite well on the DS.

    I'll wait for a Korean release.

    From the scans, it looks pretty nice. It's on my list of games to play now in the future.

    Maybe they'll include AI for the game? I mean, it's impossible to survive if you choose to be an Acolyte and no Swordsman or at least a Thief to support you

    Some time ago a doujin side-scroller called "Ragnarok Battle OFFline" was released and apparently was enough of a success to warrant two expansions.

    I loved that game, I think I played it much much more than the RO MMO, multiplayer is so much fun! They should make a DS game out of that one.
