I don't know what's sadder...that the updated graphics packs could easily be reused in the current build, since it's just a gui, to vastly improve the game, and make it easier to draw in new players.

OR, that it's a mobile release of RO1, updated!

Any idea if this will function like say, Dragon Quest X, where the mobile version syncs with the normal servers?  Or will they be like FF11, and be entirely independent?

THAT looks what either renewal or RO2 should've been.
I wonder if this new graphics engine can be reworked to work with ROs old database/mechanics (aka client update).

I'm also very interested whether this is a RO port to mobile but we can still connect to the old servers or if this is for from the original RO independent servers.

There are some independent "Ragnarok" games or even just some fan-app on android already (like playing cards with RO images). With nothing related to Gravity in trailer, seems like another independent games...

In short, RO is gonna be better franchise when it's not on Gravity's hand. Not guaranteed for sure but many fanmade or official release that made "Ragnarok" series get more interesting/positive review when Gravity is not or only minority involved (Ragnarok Tactics/Odyssey)

Yeah, if only this is Renewal / RO2.

The graphic difference feels like an actual upgrade, while at the same time still feels RO-ish.

Haven't seen the video yet.

I assume RO's source code might be a hell of a mess from A to Z, passing thru the graphics code. So rewriting that whole part, adding not very capable programmers nor analysts nor money, might prove very very (very) hard to achieve. And from my POV this could be the reason the DX9 rewrite of the graphics engine is still not done.

Even rewriting such thing from zero, which is easier, faster and cheaper, would be difficult to do.

So, it begins:

It shows character selection screen, NPC interaction, UI, Job Change Quest and a bit of the attack system. It's on CBT though, started yesterday.

EDIT: Pretty good BGM remixes IMO  ;D
