Maplestory 2







About the game:
Title: MapleStory 2
Status: Closed
Developer: Wizet
Publisher: Nexon

Maplestory 2 is the 3D sequel to Nexon’s hugely successful 2D MMO, Maplestory. Set before the original, Maplestory 2 offers players a fresh take on an old favorite with a cute, blocky graphic style that manages to capture some of the original MMO’s charm, while switching between isometric and the classic 2D view.

Using this new art-style, Maplestory 2 gives players the opportunity to explore a multitude of colorful environments, with plenty of chances to discover hidden areas and special events. Environemnts are somewhat destructible, with players able to cut down trees and knock over blocks. They may even use objects from the environment in combat. Speaking of combat, Maplestory 2 retains the original’s fast paced gameplay, with characters chaining together multiple abilities for great effect. Boss battles take up large areas of a map, which often times result in the boss destroying huge portions of their blocky surroundings.

Outside of combat, players can participate in a myriad of mini-games, including some built by other players. Using the in-game editor, players can even build special dungeons complete with a variety of monsters, traps, and triggered events to overcome.

Maplestory 2 features non-instanced housing, with players able to build their own houses block by block, while decorating it’s interior with special items. These items can range from chests to keep your extra gear, to mannequins which you can dress up with your favorite costume sets. Doing so gives players the ability to swap between these costumes while on the go.

Explosive Features:

  • Player-made dungeons
  • Unique Environment Designs
  • Mini-Games

  1. Game is genuinely loads of fun. Loads to do you can choose from eg. main storyline, trophy hunting, side quests, fishing to complete fish encyclopedia, design player house etc.
    A decent amount of content is unlocked at lv 50 such as higher difficulty dungeons and farming monsters for their pet version. Main storyline will take you to lv 50 and give you decent armour along the way, can be rushed just to hit high lv or taken slowly to get the story experience, not too difficult though.
    Lots of raids unlocked at various levels, each one has a cosmetic item that can be unlocked by grinding the raid, mounts and pets are abundant, events are really fun, trophy hunting will get you cool stuff like gestures, mounts, etc.
    Definitely give this game a try, loads to do

  2. I still love the MapleStory 1, the 2d cartoon graphics really unparalleled till now, as well as those BGMs. You can buy mesos from 5mmo by coupon “5mmocs”. it’s not a spam but the innermost feelings. MapleStory buried in my heart since v062.

    • Hi, I bought 5M from this site, but it’s not cheap enough. It still cost me 99usd. I wanna know when the meso price will be like in maplestory 1? Whatsoever it helps.

  3. This game would never be very popular on PC in NA, but i think it would be very successful on the mobile apps platform

  4. In case people haven’t checked yet but Maplestory 2 production manager is no longer on the open career option on the career page anymor it must have been filled up!

  5. the nexon career page still L>production manager in NA.
    probably will take about a year for GMS2. they still have to do website, cash shop, event, translation, others…
    (i just guessing)

      • its no so much ignorance as it is not knowing because a korean knows the difference between japanses and korean writing because they use relatively the same characters
        but they dont all know the difference between french and english because the same reason we cant tell we just dont see it often enough

          • not really, since some characters over here have accents and whatnot (Ç, é, á, é, í, ó, ú etc.) which honestly look different. for someone who hasn’t seen the two languages enough, they would probably get them mixed up. some Japanese probably don’t know the difference between languages like Chinese and Korean, and vise versa. my native language used to be Japanese, and i always mixed up Korean and Chinese. also it’s ‘before you* speak up’ sweetheart.

          • I’m chinese and I don’t have idea why anyone cannot differentiate Korean, Japanese and Chinese. They are obviously different. I know Chinese, English, and Japanese but I don’t know Korean, so maybe I’ll be waiting for English patch or English version to release.

        • its really easy. KOREAN uses alot of circles “한국어/조선말”

          CHINESE uses alot of boxes “汉语/漢語”
          Japanese uses alot of curves and slashes “かわいい”

          ofcourse they still have alot of simalarities but thats how i notice… what they emphasize on most in my opinion.

          • That was actually pretty helpful, thanks a bunch.
            Also regarding one’s inability to differ between languages
            I am Czech and people confuse Czech, Polish, Slovakian and other Slavic languages A LOT and i am not pissed about it so stop being so butthurt…..You don’t have to be Asian to feel the pain of being confused with different nationality. A person that doesn’t come in contact with at least one of these “alphabets” can hardly differ since they all look like strange signs to us.

  6. This reminds me a lot of old ms just seeing how it is going most likely nexon will make the same mistake and lead it to the same end as maplestory

  7. MP2 in my opinion, is totally different that any other MMORPG or blocky game, mainly because it combines this two things, something that no one have ever did, making it unique!
    (I am from Brazil, so do not mind if there are any mistakes)

  8. Played the original game for years but I will have to say it is a money based enterprise and not very customer service oriented. Original game was filled with hackers/scammers and dealing with in game problems such as wrongful banning (game has/had an auto banning feature) took nearly a year to received a response. Even then it was a generic reply of we are giving banned accounts a second chance etc. etc. instead of addressing the original email. In the end the overall problems with the game concerning customer service/hackers/scammer over shadowed the fun of playing this game.

  9. wow, this brings back memories. so long since I even saw anything maple story related. game is definitely an upgrade in terms of technology, but block landscape? I don’t know. It’d be nice if they can change the block sizes to be smaller to make things more rounded out where they need to be. after all, it wasn’t an 8-bit, but rather a 16-bit game. but to be completely honest, it’d be nice if they could make proper three dimensional detailed landscape rather than paste bulky blocks together. it’ll never be the same unless there’s more of the details for those epic skyships or trees.

  10. Lets just make clear that US, EU and other (categorized) fan/target market base for Nexon makes up almost 6%. In reality, this is getting a lot of positive feedback in Korea, and I doubt Nexon is getting any lazier… I mean, they have been running as a public company for about 7 years now (I think) and are still running hard. The massive majority of their customers are happy and/or satisfied, and probably didnt fully focus on US or EU, even though they did say they are going to do a global release.

  11. They said this game would come out in america sometime in the middle of summer, but I’m going to school right now and I still can’t play it.

  12. 65% Of The Comments Are Haters. 10% Are Unsure And The 25% Are People Ready To Back This Game Up. Which One Are You? Guess Which One I Am.

  13. who cares what it looks like to you. either way its still maple story and frankly if you gonna dis the game so much then dont play .-.

  14. Maplestory In 2D Is nice and fun, but now ( 2015 ) the number of players is low.

    liked it when almost every channel was full, but maplestory is easier now..

    • MS is easier but its not as much fun. I liked it when you had to fight for a field and you would eventually party up and befriend them. Now none of my friends are ever online.

  15. My original aran’s name from 2008^ but anyways, since they started coming up with new jobs constantly, the game has gone far downhill. I have some great memories on there, but once they started adding jobs after the resistance, it started dying as a game. I dont think ms 2 will bring in as much new attention as they think. They had a nice golden age, but I think the decline will continue, sadly 🙁

    • Imagine what it looks like now. There was a golden age but every game dies and MS is coming to its end. Even the Free Market is empty now and it actually makes me super sad.

  16. I remember playing this on the Wii when it was called “MySims Kingdom” and my little brother bought it. Good fun. LMAO.

  17. Really like the idea. I will for sure play this game if it’s FTP.
    J’aime beaucoup le concept je vais jouer assurément s’il est gratuit.
    When will it be available?

  18. I’ve heard that Maplestory 2 is officially released on July 7th. Is the Korean version being released on that day? What about their announcements of it being global? If anyone knows which version it is, could you possibly reply to this comment and inform me of it. T^T

    P.s- I sound sooo damn serious in this comment lolol. :p

  19. i watched it once and i was highly against it and thought it was the dumbest idea i have ever seen in a long time. however i kept re watching the video and the more i saw how the game was the more i began to like the idea. i have watched the video about 10-15 times now and my only 2 concerns are 1, there seems to be ALOT of random stuff in there and i hope they don’t focus to much on that and forget the actual game aspect of it, secondly (and more importantly) i’m unsure of how i will like (if i do like) the combat system, it seems like you would almost be better off trying to make the combat a gird based turn by turn game (however i know many many players would be turned off by this) so i’m unsure how the actual combat will be to play.

  20. i think it will be a great game , and i think its a new idea to let go the whole 2d games thing and start competing with such mega games such as world of war craft

  21. For all you people who gave a thumbs down just needs to shut up and and dont play or u can try to enjoy this free game. The choice is yours.

  22. I came on this site to read about a game but instead found myself shocked by the poor level of basic grammar and spelling of those who left comments.

    Is it something inherent in MS players (I have noticed the same on several other MS related forums/articles) or is this just the state of education today?

    • You’re making a fallacy; it does not stand to reason that poor grammar and spelling on an internet forum is correlated to a particular state of education or the nature of people playing ‘MS’. What you’re effectively committing is confirmation bias.

      I do not typically make use of these comment systems and as such, I will be likely to never reply should you wish to make any further, fallacious comments.

    • You my friend are letting your own ignorance shine through. The state of education has nothing to do with the it. Half of MS players are not from English speaking countries. Open your mind a little bit before you open your mouth.

    • @Concerned I’m totally with you on this one. I wouldn’t go as much as to say that the education is failing, which in some places it actually is, but rather that kids don’t really care. Even though, to be honest I learned all my grammar online from reading and playing games, which makes it a little rough and I make errors. Another thing, to the two guys who commented about what you said, you two don’t have to be rude about something so small. Please keep your mouth shut if you’re going to be that rude. If you wish to be technical with it, then instead of shutting your mouth, stop typing.

    • Most of the players on here are 13 and under. That’s who the game is targeted at. I’m not sure why you expect young children to speak and talk properly. Most don’t. Especially teens. They *know* how to use it they just choose the *cool* lingo.

    • i wouldnt call it a huge ripoff though, i agree its a bit like spiral knights but im pretty sure this has jump quests and acually has items and good farming, personally i just think spiral knights is boring since its basicly just farming and farming, no quests or anythnig

  23. >game is voxel-based
    >everyone’s 1st thought is minecraft, even though it was not the first voxel-based game
    >oh no, its 3d, not playing – according to most people
    >this sucks – has no explanation to back it up
    >gonna end up like habbo hotel

    gtfo people and get real opinions.

  24. Personally i got really into MS 1 because it was super simple and fun, it looks like they’re just trying to over complicate things like every other Mmo is doing….. plus it’ll probably die in a few years like MS 1 did….

    • That’s weird, Did this come from some strange alternate reality where MS isn’t still one of the top played MMOs?
      It’s still tremendously popular and that hasn’t really faltered.
      It has a massive fanbase.

    • tired of people saying or complaining about mmo developers considering the idea of a complex class, craft, or trait system, reality is most true gamers or mmo players notice I don’t say all I say most dislike the idea that mmorpgs are dumbing down there systems.

    • When did MS1 die? O.o MS has been around for a long time and has had a ton of players ever since. The game isn’t going to die for quite some time. Sad to say that the game will eventually die, but every game does so oh well.

      • I’m pretty sure what that person was trying to say is that how it use to be back in the days if you even played MS1 when it first came out( which I did ). Now it’s basically full of turds playing etc.

  25. This looks awesome! i never could get into maplestory with its 2d side scrolling game but now they are making a 3d mmo with a locked camera type thing i could get into this!

  26. The maker’s of maplestory are getting a little bit lazy for making this ^^” ya it looks cool but it looks like dragon nest (another nexon game) and the money they get from the 1st maple story they could of done alot better ….

    • Not really seeing as a completely different company is working with Nexon to make this game, the other company that works with Nexon on maplestory has no say whatsoever in maplestory 2. Maplestory 1 is and will not pay for this new game. What your saying is like blizzard taking the money from WoW to make Starcraft or Diablo 3 better. Its not gonna happen cause to seperate teams are working on the games.

    • How does this game look even remotely similar to dragon’s nest. O.o Dragon’s nest is a fast paced action mmorpg while MS2 seems to be more slow paced and doesn’t even operate even close to the way DN does. Did you hit your head when you were born? I was tempted to say as a child, but I figured you would have to still be one if you are dumb enough to say one of the most obviously wrong things in the entire world.

  27. Shame on you Nexon. This just looks like they put Maple Story and Minecraft together. Yes it looks smoother than Minecraft but all it is, is just the characters aren’t 8-bit pixel characters. This is a great upset.

        • still its pretty much minecraft with anime charictors and i hate that so much and i think i like ms as a 2d game. however 2.5d would be pretty kewl.

          • Explain how this is “pretty much minecraft” Just because it has a blocky terrian automatically means it minecraft? You’re so stupid. Have you even seen any of the gameplay? The latest CBT streams on twitch? Besides the graphics the game is far more advance than MS1 will ever be. Do your research and stop calling every game that has blocks in it minecraft. Do you call your geometry homework minecraft too since it has cubes and other shapes in it as well?

          • Your opinion is very important …..
            Yeah keep dreaming. You belong to the minority group who thinks this is like minecraft. Sucks to be you since nobody except your weird little group will listen to you.

          • Interesting. Personally the AI reminds me of WoW and that’s a biiiig turnoff. I have never liked WoW in the least. I hope it’s different than what it seems…

    • just because there are block does not mean that mine craft is there every game has block ever hear of a pixel. I swear every time there is a block its mine craft and mine craft that mine craft was not even the first to do the whole blocks thing they just did it right. ( I do like mine craft) do not take offence to this comment all mine craft lovers)

    • Shame on you for thinking this is minecraft. Ever heard of ROBLOX? Ever heard of Giga Miner? What about Build Destroy Rebuild? All “block” type games. But they are in no shape or form. Minecraft. You, my friend, are a great upset to society.

    • To the guy who said “YOUR SOOO STUPID”, for someone calling others stupid you should probably learn how to use grammar properly. It’s “you’re” moron. Hate to be a grammar nazi, but please don’t call someone stupid when you don’t know this. Another thing I want to say is why is it minecraft just because it has some blocks. It doesn’t even look remotely like minecraft, and the gameplay couldn’t be further from minecraft. I understand that those saying this are all little kids, but seriously, use your head a little. My god damn 5 year old cousin could tell the difference from this and minecraft. That is just sad.

    • I actually.. SOMEWHAT agree. It’s not directly related to the infamous Minecraft though. It could’ve been an idea they thought of and had no clue of the resemblance to ‘Blocky’ games, because, honestly, cubes are very popular…

    • They only made it blocky to keep the tile sets simple and clean. I mean the content they have probably took a LONG time to make and program, terrain was the least of their problems. The blocky-ness of it also serves a purpose, if you give the community a simple building tool they will the best things of your wildest dreams. Essentially, the blocks allow us players to build more easier and made the cutesy art style of the game work. MS1 also used blocks in their tile sets as well (I heard that one from a Youtube video though). If you think about it a lot of other games used blocks too but they aren’t getting any **** thrown at them. It’s like those times your friends are talking in class, you just joined in the conversation and your the one called out. All in all, blocks don’t belong to Minecraft, they probably belong to the cavemen; basically everyone.

      • *EDIT*
        “If you give the community a simple building tool they will “MAKE” the craziest and greatest things you’ve ever seen.”

        I think that’s a better way to word it.

  28. Yes hurrah! , i am super excited for maple story 2. I’ve been a long time player of maplestory and this is for sure going to bring a new spring of life to it.

  29. super excited, but i feel like im gonna be one of those scrubs who falls off the edge of the map…
    altho the idea also kinda reminds me of Super Mario 3D land meets minecraft
