Nexon have released a cinematic trailer for MapleStory 2, which they announced in November. Naturally, there’s no gameplay to see here, but you can watch the trailer below.



MapleStory 2 is planned for release in mid-2014. The game will take place in a different world from the original MapleStory, and will use an isometric camera view.

    Good old times, will never be the same… Cuz we changed…

  • Pockystix

    well. . . that’s something

    I wonder how it’ll play

  • Suicunesol

    Trailer looks nice. Too bad the real game will not look or play anything like that.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Noooo really?

      • fyi1191

        Really really. It’s like heaven and earth.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          I didn’t know people would think that a game that was originally 2d would suddenly have cg sprites that always move like their in a movie

    • RichyGaming

      lol I was about to say that.

  • Kaetsu

    I’m curious to know what they mean by isometric view. Will it play more like Diablo or Diagaea?

    • PreyMantis

      It’s going to be an RTS.
      Hint: Korean-made game.

  • Anthony Birken

    After the original maple’s drastic changes, I will never see maple in the same light again.

    • MrRobbyM

      Yeah, it’s a shame. Original MS was such an incredible feeling, even if it was too grindy. SOME of the improvements over the years were useful but they went overboard with the dependency on NX items and a lot of the quests were downright stupid. Shame.

  • Kotorin

    Wub wub

    • Pockystix

      that nearly killed me. I really hope the game doesn’t have dubstep as a part of it’s OST. . .

  • Learii

    is will be 3rd person gameplay I bet

  • Masa

    best chibi fight i’ve ever seen lol. :)

  • InfectedAI

    Pretty cool cinematic. I’d watch a movie styled like this.

  • Pretty awesome fight =)

  • LBattle0819

    Well….. that was adorable

  • Raze

    I don’t really like chibi

    But this one is cool

  • harmonyworld

    actual gameplay would be nice

  • chroma816

    I’m glad they’re still using the same art-style.

    That trailer looked really good too – but we know the game isn’t gonna look like that.

    In any case, I’m intrigued. I’ll definitely look into MS2 as long as MS1 isn’t left in the dust by Nexon.

    • MrRobbyM

      I’m pretty sure I’ve read somewhere that they’re treating it as a separate game and will continue to support MS1.

      • chroma816

        That’s great! I actually still enjoy MS1 but wouldn’t mind playing MS2 as well.

  • Donatetimo

    hope maplestory 2 is less miracle cube dependent.

  • Kari

    dubstep …we meet again

  • Kaitsu

    Nexon NA =/= Nexon KR

    And from what I’ve heard, this game is going to have an overview and plays completely different from the first game. And by overview, I mean 2.5D.

    • Dippers Cheeks ♪

      Nexon NA and Nexon KR may be two different beasts, but they are still powered by money grabbing jews who will do anything to drain as much money as possible from you, KR likes to spoil its audience to keep them from leaving and it becomes much clearer when a game gets an update no one likes. NA just plain doesnt care. In the end Nexon overall isint very good.

  • fairysun

    Hmm, I wondered what class is she?
    She is agile, can fight well in close range, has strength to match the knight-type, can throw weapon, use magic, and summon monster.

  • Sergio Briceño

    It looks like more developers are taking cues from WoW. It doesn’t matter how bland your gameplay or story turns out to be as long as you have a kickass opening cinematic, it seems.

    • J_Joestar

      always hated that approach, friends keep sending me cinematic trailers to games that look awesome and end up very “meh” once you get to the actual game.

  • Joshen McEwen

    Forget the game they need to be working on some kind of Maple Story anime series.

    • J_Joestar

      didn’t they have an anime already?

  • NimbusStev

    Wow, that was really well done.
