MapleStory fans, check out this paralyzing bit of cuteness in the form of the very first ever MapleStory spinoff. And I know there are, like, five of you in the comments including myself. Nexon is implementing the very first spinoff in-game in the near future, and it's called MapleStory Friend's Story: First Spin-Off. Imaginative!
The game transplants familiar NPCs from MapleStory into a school setting, where you'll be able to complete quests as a student of sorts. Quests are delivered via mobile phone, and you'll live out your MapleStory days as a student in this alternate universe.
It looks absolutely adorable, and these screenshots have me wanting to go back to the game for the first time in ages. No word on a Western release just yet, but I surmise it'll be hitting everywhere eventually.
