MapleStory 2 Launching in South Korea in 2014

MapleStory is on the way to a South Korea release in 2014.

MapleStory has been live in South Korea since 2003, isn't it about time it got a sequel? Nexon and developer Wizet seem to agree: MapleStory 2 is reportedly scheduled to be released in 2014.

MMO Culture reports MapleStory 2 to be a 'full 3D (quarter view)' game, which perhaps points to a similar camera style we see in games like Ragnarok Online. Considering MapleStory's 2D engine and visuals, this would be a not-very-surprising step up.

The game's official Korean website is up, but sorely lacking in information. There is a tiny teaser trailer to be seen in the clouds, if you can find it.

Whether or not MapleStory 2 will make a welcome addition to the modern MMO space is a big question mark for the time being, but it's been a long time coming with the original game having reached 10 years in service this year.

Are you excited to see a new MapleStory game? Let us know in the comments below!

Ogryns are good lads. Simple as. Anyway, I'm basically a human tornado and I love jank. Also simple as.

    Looks like the rumors turned out to be true! I really wonder what direction Nexon will take with the new game. Hopefully it won't be as "pay to win" as MapleStory is right now, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    I played the first one for just a bit, it never quite hit me right. But I'm glad to hear its still going strong.

    Thanks. High five!
