    MapleStory 2

    Nexon announced a sequel to MapleStory, but MapleStory 2 is trying to differentiate itself from the popular PC game. MapleStory 2 takes place in a different world that MapleStory with new monsters. Nexon says the two games are not connected to each other.

    Instead of being a 2D game, MapleStory 2 uses an isometric viewpoint. The game will be a different genre so MapleStory 2 stands on its own. Nexon will continue to support both MapleStory and MapleStory 2.

    User testing for MapleStory 2 is planned for mid-2014.

    Victoria Island details
    Here’s the Castle of Tria, the peaceful mushroom village Henesys, the barren lands of Perion, the fairies’ town Ellinia, and Kerning City, where money is the only thing that matters.

    In each of these areas, there are a variety of unique challengers awaiting adventurers.

    Henesys

    The first area with blue skies and clear rivers as the peaceful town of Victoria Island, Henesys. However, in the fiels are mushrooms and pigs who although look cute, harass and attack passers-by. Residents tremble in anxiety but put their trust in their Chief Manovich and the best archer in Henesys, the vigilante Oskhal, who is committed to the safety of the villagers.

    Perion

    Unlike Henesys, Perion has rugged terrain, sandstorms, and is known by adventurers for its rocky mountains. Despite the forces of nature at work, various monsters have adapted and survived in the hostile environment. The girl with the mysterious power of wolves, Tina, the most valiant warrior Heart of the Red Wolf and his son, Rolling Thunder, do not tolerate monsters and fight to protect their town.

    Ellinia

    This is the mysterious town of Ellinia. Nestled deep in a forest, outside Ellinia are monsters that were originally fairies. In particular, you can find Slimes here. Adventurers try to talk to the Great Magician Asimov for advice but he is only worried about fairies. And there’s a special fairy named Anos who has always been smart.

    Kerning City

    Kerning City is an amazing technologically advanced area. However, with their huge skycrapers’ shadows and factory chimneys spouting black smoke, there is also a dark side to the city. In these shadows, adventurers might find themselves in the alleyways of Kerning City. The people here try to make money in any way to get into the luxurious Goldus area. Forced to stand by and watch silently is Blackeye, who you might be able to trust.

    Unknown Areas

    Victoria Island’s story doesn’t end there. Together with the blue sea and white sandy beaches, Lith Harbor is overflowing with romance. No one knows what happens in deep dark caves where light does not reach. Severe snowstorms engulf the mountains in the north. Due to the selfishness of human civilization, science experiments have created an area where nature has been corrupted. How did we create this world with so many different appearances?

    (Yoo Mira, backgrounds part-leader): We put a lot of detail to express the area’s uniqueness into a single rectangular block but also kept the silhouette simple. Each block meant the objects were fairly small alone, but put together they completed a larger design.

    (Nam Seonghee, scenario writer): We absolutely want to continue the original work’s story in the future, but I think it would be better keep MapleStory 2 as a ‘story of the past’ instead of covering things from the original.

    Q. How far in the past is it?
    In the original, 3 Overseers created the world. This will be after that but still very distant from the original. Therefore, you can continue to play MapleStory and learn more about that world, while an episode from MapleStory 2 might connect a little to it.

    Q. Is the Black Mage in it?
    No. The Black Mage was the main enemy in the original. Creating a new story is sort of hard but we are working on it. In MapleStory 2, you’ll have to defend Lapenta from enemies to keep Maple World safe.

    I tried the mush royale. Its... really bad. Almost no points to killing. A lot of points for surviving til near the end.
