The Memory of Ragnarok OST

Diwa and Daren, good friends of mine, messaged me the other day about a promotion currently running in iRO. They're selling the modified soundtrack called "The memory of RAGNAROK". The BGMs from Prontera, Payon, and other maps, were upgraded into a complete song with Lyrics and better instruments. The CD package also contains a stub that you can use to claim a unique in-game headgear. It's a pretty good deal if you ask me.

Anyway, as soon as I found out I talked via MSN with Zee, who works for the business development department of Gravity. It's a good thing that Diwa and Daren pointed this out to me because Gravity only had less than 500 CDs left in their inventory! After a few rounds of negotiation, I was able to reserve the last remaining CDs that we can sell here in the Philippines! Whew. Talk about a close call. If I didn't contact Zee within the day the 400 CDs would have probably been shipped to Japan or America. Speaking of those countries, in America they're being sold for 20$ while in Japan it's going at 35$. We will definitely sell it at a more affordable price here in the Philippines because of the difference of economies.

The pRO Team will start preparing to launch this and we will try to get them incorporated in the Ragna Rally event. I want to sell the CD packages during our EB parties. The sad thing is that we only have 400 copies so this CD will definitely be a collector's item!

Anyway, if you want more information on how iRO is doing this, just visit their site here.

That's it for now, cheers!

Hello Salleh XD

You'll have to line up like everyone else once we finalize the deal with Gravity. Hopefully makakabenta na kami mid-late march.

Waaaah! Finally! Been waiting for this! Since nung nakita ko pa yung mini site nila sa iRO... gusto ko rin yung headgeara... /sob pero nasa provice ako ehh, baka hindi ako makabili... imagine only 400 copies left? :S

Carlo "Wauks" Ople said...

@Kiven: We can probably reserve a few copies for media, especially if they write about it XD

@Xinned:Anyway, don't worry, we will only be selling them at the Ragna Rally events. Just make sure to go to the EB nearest to where you live. The schedule and the mechanics for the Rally will be out soon.

Carlo "Wauks" Ople said...


Yup, most of the CDs will be sold at the Ragna Rally events. We will probably give away some of the CDs as prizes for in-game events.


We have an event scheduled there I think sometime this summer. I'll make sure to bring extra copies for the game guide so you can get a copy. Btw, we're already working on the next issue.

Cheers and thanks for the comments!

make a pinoy version? lolx XD
(mahirap ata yan...)

Carlo "Wauks" Ople said...

A pinoy version would cost too much >.<; Do you know some bands actually charge more than 150,000 PHP just to compose a song for a game?

Maybe we can make a pinoy OST but then again we won't have RPC this year. Hehehe.
