MapleStory 2 announced, beta begins in 2014

MMO nostalgia hits hard

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.
