- MapleStory M, a remake of the original MapleStory for PC, is now available for pre-registration on the Play Store.
- The game soft launched earlier this week in several countries, so the official launch shouldn’t be too far off.
- At launch, MapleStory M will feature five classes, as well as an auto button like other modern mobile MMOs.
More than 15 years after it was first released, MapleStory is finally coming to mobile devices as MapleStory M. The game is a faithful remake of Nexon’s 2D MMO release, and pre-registration is available now on Google Play. Pre-registration will reward players with a number of exclusive rewards, as well as a notification when the game is released.
This generally signals that the game is due for release soon, although it’s been available in certain countries since the beginning of the week. The title has already soft launched in Canada, Australia, Philippines, Indonesia, and New Zealand, so if you’re in one of those countries you can download the game right away.
MapleStory is a free-to-play 2D platforming game where players kill monsters to collect weapons and items. Although its popularity has died down in recent years, Nexon continued to release updates to the game more than 10 years after its release. MapleStory M represents a continuation of the series, and will likely gain hundreds of thousands of players on nostalgia alone.
At release, MapleStory M will feature five classes: Dark Knight, Bow Master, Night Lord, Bishop, and Corsair. The visuals are virtually identical to the original release (MapleStory 2 still hasn’t seen a global release), and gameplay has been adapted to touch screen devices, with an auto button to speed things up like in other mobile MMOs.
