It seems like eventually, there won’t be any classic MMORPGs left that don’t have an Android adaptation. Just like the successful Lineage 2 Revolution and the more recent Maplestory, Ragnarok Online Mobile, known as Ragnarok M: Eternal Love is the new remastered mobile version of the successful game
that’s currently only available in Korea and Japan. However, it was just announced that it will be coming out with an international version in the third quarter of 2018.
[Updated 10/22/2018] Until now, only the Japanese version of the game was available, but a new version was just published for southeast Asia that includes an English translation. As of October 20, the closed beta is available to played.
[Updated 10/31/2018] The international version of the game is now available.
The 100 million registered users have boosted it in many countries to the top spot in some of the main Asian marketplaces. In this case, on a visual level, it doesn’t have 2D sprites to represent characters in 3D settings, but instead, it uses a completely three-dimensional environment in the more modern style of Ragnarok 2, released in 2002. That said, the customization and social interaction is a factor that’s almost as important as completing the missions themselves.
The studio Gravity already has a lot of experience in licencing its products and releasing spin-offs for mobile platforms. Ragnarok: Spear of Odin is an isometric hack and slash set in the same universe, Ragnarok Rush offers turn-based combats in the same style as freemium RPGs on the platform, while Ragnarok Classic went back to the roots of the original title for PC on a visual level.
