Throughout the world, the people of the major powers throughout the land
live in peace and prosperity, unaware that a great evil lurks on the
horizon. There is a clandestine group, under the guise of scholarly
research, plotting to resurrect a goddess whose time has long since
passed. To achieve this goal, they need two things; a vessel of flesh
and blood to house the spirit of the goddess, and the lives of every
living being offered up as a sacrifice.
It is against the backdrop of
this coming chaos that Ares, an orphan from a small, forgotten village,
sets out to seek his fortune as an adventurer. At the start of his
journey, he encounters a beautiful young girl with mysterious powers
named Sierra, who has not only lost her memories about herself, but also
of the world around her. Together, they embark on an adventure that will
ultimately decide the fate of the entire world.
• Flexible Character Development System - Characters
earn both Status and Skill Points each time they gain a level, and these
points can be allocated to customize their skills across a wide range of
different job classes such as Swordsman, Thief, and Merchant.
Upgradable Weapons and Armor - Characters’ armor and weapons can be
upgraded by a blacksmith, or by affixing effect cards dropped by
defeated monsters. Blacksmith upgrades will improve an item’s overall
stats, while effect cards boost specific features.
Optimized for Touch Screen - All attacks and commands are performed
using the Touch Screen. Slash with the stylus to attack with your sword,
and circle or tap the intended target to unleash magic spells.
Party-based Multiplayer - Players can take on the Mirage Tower with up
to 2 other friends via local wireless connection or Wi-Fi. With more
than 50 floors, randomly generated maps and completion conditions, and
the chance to obtain rare items, players can enjoy this feature long
after the main story has been completed.
• Job Classes - Job Classes
are broken down into Low Level Jobs and High Level Jobs with two special
jobs unique to Ragnarok DS. A High Level Job can only be achieved by
following the corresponding development path from its Low Level Job.
Upgrade Equipment - Customize your character with the single touch of
your stylus. Equip weapons, armor, and accessories you obtained simply
by tapping them with the stylus!
• Quests - There are two kinds of
quests for players to tackle in the world of Ragnarok DS; scenario
quests that are necessary to complete in order to advance the story, and
optional side quests that can be completed at the player’s leisure.
Scenario quests will become available as you progress through the main
storyline of the game. Players will be required to complete scenario
quests in order to continue through the game. To engage in a side quest,
players can either go to the tavern in each city, talk with various
NPCs, or advance in a specific job class. Many side quests have various
prerequisites before they become unlocked, and many of them won’t be
available until after the main story of the game has been completed.
