Ragnarok DS To Surely Have One of the Best Soundtracks of 2010

Regular readers of OSV should know by now that I’m obsessed with Ragnarok Online and the game’s soundtrack composed by Korean sound studio soundTeMP (it was our soundtrack of the month at one point). It should come as no surprise then that I’m incredibly excited about Ragnarok DS (they’ve apparently dropped the “online” bit since it was announced) that’s being released by XSEED this month. What we haven’t heard about until now, however, is how the game will sound.

We checked in with XSEED to see if soundTeMP would be providing new music for the DS release, and while we were told that all the game’s music would come from the PC version, at least we know that they’ll be pulling music from one of the best soundtracks of all time. In the new trailer that XSEED recently released, we heard MIDI-fied versions of both “Theme of Juno” and “Streamside.” While I’m a bit disappointed that the sound quality is being reduced to fit the audio onto the DS cartridge, the MIDI versions do have a unique retro charm about them, so we’ll have to wait until next month to see what the final result is.

Are you looking forward to Ragnarok DS? Do you think developer GungHo should have sacrificed some other aspect of the game in order to preserve soundTeMP’s amazing soundtrack?
