MapleStory 2

MapleStory, a popular 2D MMO, will be getting a sequel. MapleStory 2 will be developed by N Square and will bring the series into 3D for the first time. The game is set before the first game and will feature locations and monsters that will be familiar to fans of the series, however it will bring a new art style and new gameplay to the table. A beta for the game will be coming out some time next year says Nexon, MapleStory’s publisher, though information about it is scarce at this time.

The original 2D game was a runaway success with tens of millions of accounts and, reportedly, hundreds of millions of dollars in profits for Nixon. The game is a fun little game with somewhat simple graphics, however this has allowed it to age well compared to many other games. MapleStory is like any other MMORPG in the sense that the game has players fight monsters and perform quests in order to get in-game currency, experience points and items. Like many such games players will level up through quests and a lot of fun grinding. The game has multiple servers with players being able to have multiple characters and each world (server) is different, except for Maple Island, Victoria Island and Ossyria, which appear in all versions

The game offers the standard guild system and the ability to get married, however one of the more standout features is allowing players to be part of families, where more junior players are able to team up with more senior ones. This last feature likely attracts a lot of families, who want to game together. Overall the game has been described as being a great deal of fun, though the game has not been reviewed by any major gaming site.
