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. Players, using charming characters, interact through chatting, trading, and playing mini-games while surrounded by vibrant backgrounds. Groups of players can unite in parties or guilds to socialize, hunt monsters, or embark on quests.

MapleStory’s innovative cash shop offers players the option to use real currency to pay for game enhancements, from cosmetic items such as haircuts and clothing, to virtual pets that can be trained to sit, stand, and breathe fire. This feature is purely optional and players can try out items prior to purchase in a virtual dressing room. Players create truly unique identities in MapleStory through avatar customizations.

The new Neo City zone will give players access to a time portal, giving them the ability to travel to a time period of their choice, depending on the quest they complete.  Kerning Square will be a new shopping mall in Kerning City and will have many of the same features that real world shopping malls have. 

Neo City’s addition to the game will open up a time portal that allows players to travel into the future, to and from Leafre.  Players who venture to the Terra Forrest on a quest to reach the time portal may also encounter Andy, a time traveler extraordinaire with a story as interesting as his personality.  Neo City’s addition to the game will give players a new way to travel and open up new adventures.

Kerning City’s soon to be added Kerning Square shopping mall will be the tallest and largest in Maple World.  Like real world shopping malls, the mall will feature coffee shops, clothing stores, gift shops and many others.  Players will venture through the impressive mall as they take on the quests prompting them to explore this area.  Players can also enter a new dungeon where department store items come to life. 

Launched on May 11, 2005, MapleStory became a legend in online games with its amazing social features, rich art style and open world opportunities. Players have flocked to MapleStory with over 92 million worldwide users and over six million users in North America.

Maplers have traveled through the many lands of the game’s vast world, as well as unleashed the game’s traits of individuality and freedom beyond its game borders. Players have turned MapleStory into an online video mainstay through blogs, community fan sites and fan videos. Over 200,000 videos are available by searching MapleStory at YouTube.
