I was thinking about that but then it might not really work just cuz of Ragnorak.
so it like Ragnorak VS Trickster online and stuff...
but also on how it Pay 2 Play (I Think) instead of Free 2 Play.
but don't they OWN most of the game they publish o.o???
RO and Trickster are only similar in the sense that they're isometric games.
RO has a more serious art-style when it comes to the sprites that you actually see (the artwork and such though, like on the site and so forth is 100% anime-inspired), with more "hardcore" leaning gameplay. TO was very much a mixture of the whole casual and hardcore thing. If you spent a lot of time you got a ton accomplished, a lot of quests, or a lot of levels grinding, etc. But, if you only played a little bit here and there, you would still get a lot done, due to questing and such.
Ragnarok has been F2P for I think 5 years, or something. Some servers are still P2P (the Japanese one I know is), but as a whole the P2P model proved ineffective for profit versus a cash shop (F2P).
sssssooooooooo...in other words, we have a better chance of getting Trickster being Publish by smaller Company's then bigger ones???
I would say yes. Especially if they don't have any other games to fit the criteria. Let's look at some mentioned companies:
Gravity: Lacks a 2D, anime-inspired game. While RO is played in a 2D field, the graphics are mostly 3D and 2.5D. Trickster was entirely sprite-based in a 2D field. The gameplay, although similar to a point (point-and-click), is also vastly different in how they actually play. Trickster had very few complicated gameplay mechanics and leaned more toward a casual crowd. RO has a ton of complicated gameplay mechanics and leans more toward a more "hardcore" audience.
Nexon: MapleStory. Anime-inspired 2D game. While yes, the gameplay is significantly different between MapleStory and TO, part of TO's niche is already in Maple, so it would probably be hard for Nexon to market.
OGPlanet: Same as Nexon, just replace MapleStory with LaTale.
Aeria Games: It could work with them, I think. As far as I know most/all of their games are in a 3D style with quite a few following a more serious-inspired look as opposed to anime/cartoonish.
In a summary, a company grabbing TO would likely do so if it is unique and profitable to them.
I don't think Activision (the creators of Call of Duty) would be particularly interested in absorbing a dead military FPS franchise, for instance, seeing as it would just be more of the same with CoD.
