“5D,” by the way, refers to how the game completely changes between 2D and 3D views depending on your distance from the enemy.

Game streamers M.S.S. Project and pro gamer Fuudo, as well as the School of Ragnarok development team, will host the opening event on February 27. On the last day of the location test, each store will host a tournament.
