Ragnarok mobile spin-off releasing soon on both iOS and Android
Ragnarok publisher Gravity Interactive is set to launch an all-new mobile game patterned after the original called Ragnarok Online: Valkyrie Uprising.
As one of its best mmorpg titles popularity-wise, Ragnarok was an obvious choice for the publisher to translate for the fast-growing mobile gamer market.
No set date for release announced, but its pre-registration is ongoing on the official Valkyrie Uprising website (http://warpportal.com/mobile/valkyrie/event.aspx).
Ragnarok Online: Valkyrie Uprising will be “an action-packed, adventure fantasy MMORPG for iOS and Android” and will be developed by NeoCyon. It will have story-driven quests, multiplayer functionality, and four classes ported over from the classic Ragnarok. The economy will also be fully player-driven like the original. Other key systems confirmed for the new mobile game include pet management, card collection, and an item enchanting.
“Gamers will have the chance to work with players from all over the world in the same game to play together, slay porings or working together on quests. Ragnarok Online: Valkyrie Uprising is incredibly fun and finally brings the classic gameplay to mobile,” Jay H Choi, Chief Operation Officer at Gravity Interactive.
Classic Ragnarok players have an extra incentive to register Valkyrie Uprising with their mobile devices. Beginning over the weekend, existing players of the original mmorpg can receive a special in-game item for a successful registration.
