Nexon’s online PC game MapleStory is getting an in-game spin-off, in the form of MapleStory Friend’s Story: First Spin-Off. It’s found within the main game itself. You can have a look at its anime trailer above.
The update places the NPC characters from within the MapleStory universe within an alternate world—a school fantasy life, to be precise. You’ll be able to zone into this new spin-off area and complete quests in the school setting.
There are “modern day” fixtures in this world of course, including buses, a proper school level, and naturally school uniforms. You’ll get your quests via mobile phone too, so it seems.
MapleStory is out now on PC.
