MapleStory 2 is releasing globally, closed beta sign-up open now

I like my nostalgia blocky

The original 2D side-scrolling MapleStory made a big splash on the MMORPG scene back in 2003 in South Korea and would do the same with its North American release in 2005. That trend seems to continue with another long release cycle for MapleStory 2. Publisher Nexon America announced the game would be releasing globally, after nearly three years from its original South Korean launch in 2015, with a shiny new trailer over the weekend.

For those of you interested in getting in on the blocky action as soon as possible, the sign-up for the closed beta is open now for anyone living in the Americas, Europe, or Oceania and will be starting May 9. According to Nexon, MapleStory 2 takes place within the same universe as the original but also acts as a prequel. Also, despite the announcement of a global release, an official date has yet to be announced.

Although the class system appears to be nowhere near what it was in the original game, Nexon promises this game will be much more customizable than the original, from customizing your character's outfits, to even building your own home.

Personally, I remember only playing MapleStory for as long as I did because my friend's parents refused to drop the $15 a month for a World of Warcraft subscription and I felt bad for him.
