Don't lie, you've heard of MapleStory. The immensely popular 2D MMO took up many hours during its heyday, and it's still got quite the fanbase today. Now, Nexon has officially announced a sequel.

Developed by N Square, MapleStory 2 brings the series into 3D with a brand new artstyle. Taking place in a time period before the original game, players can expect to explore a world that feels familiar, but has its own unique style and tone. In addition to the new visuals, the sequel will take advantage of a new gameplay system.

Nexon has also unveiled plans for a beta sometime next year. Though the publisher hasn't gone into specifics, it has opened up the official site which will host new information as it comes.
