In the golden age of MMOs, games such as MapleStory thrived. Most popular with younger audiences, the free-to-play, 2D, side-scrolling game from South Korea was a top contender in middle schools. Granted, that was many years ago, and the game has certainly passed its prime. However, publisher Nexon has returned, having taken MapleStory to another dimension, the third dimension.
Introducing MapleStory 2, now in 3D. The MMO is back for fans to socialize, customize, combat, and coordinate in a way that brings the tradition of MapleStory to a modern degree. Despite the loss of pixel art style graphics, they managed to maintain the feeling of the classic MapleStory, while still improving on the visual quality significantly.
No word on when the game will be publicly available, but you can sign up for the closed beta on their official website.
