The above is a look at gameplay from Pocket MapleStory.

    Is that a magical girl job or Mine(Akame ga Kill) is that you? It’s been so long since I last touch MapleStory. Whatever happened to the default classes, I wonder.

      A part of me dies everytime I have to play an iOS game and find out it has a virtual d-pad

  • Looks great and all, but IMO. It should’ve been a console handheld game. Because in the end you’ll end up paying more for your bandwidth on your cell then the actuall game itself…

      True that, especially with my measily 250 MB a month data plan. Would’ve been cool on Vita though.

      ….People who play mobile mmos and such do so over wifi mostly.

    This seems really cool and I know there trying to tap into the mobile market which is great but i just want some Maplestory action on my vita or 3ds.
