'MapleStory' Celebrates its Third Anniversary

by Rainier on May 8, 2008 @ 9:26 a.m. PDT

Filled with vibrant backgrounds and charming characters, MapleStory is an online adventure game that centers around the “Maple World,” allowing players to combat monsters and develop their characters’ skills and abilities in an immense platform-inspired persistent world.

To date Maplers have unleashed abundant guilds, created hilarious online video knockoffs of Nexon’s MapleStory commercials and invigorated the game’s forum with lively discussions. The anniversary events give the devoted community more ways to have fun in an already compelling and deep world of game play.

Among the many in-game events, users will be introduced to Showa, a major enhancement to the colossal Maple World. This new Yakuza-themed region features over 70 quests, areas and a challenging Boss fight. Additionally, Nexon will unveil the cake-themed monster, Big Puff Daddy, who pounds his way through several towns. GM events are planned throughout the month-long celebration, which features a Nexon Cash Shop sale just in time for summer. These anniversary events only add to the fun Maplers are already having in the Monster Carnival, fighting the Horntail or working the Maple Trading System, all added earlier this year.

The party extends beyond Maple World borders. Players who upload videos celebrating MapleStory’s anniversary could win one of five prizes, including a new computer worth $1,500.
