It seems like a no-brainer to bring the sequel to the popular MapleStory westward. And yet we’ve been waiting for a while now to see any movement on the MapleStory 2 front. The good news? Movement spotted. Nexon America opened up the official MapleStory 2 website this past week and is now taking signups for the MMO’s beta test. There are some giveaways and promotions in the meantime, and when May 9th hits, the western closed beta will begin. Nexon isn’t making this title global, however, so be sure to check to see if your country or region is included. MapleStory 2 is a huge step up from its predecessor both in visuals and content. It offers pretty adorable 3-D cubed worlds, interesting classes, and player housing. “MapleStory 2 features powerful tools to let all of our players truly customize their own corner of Maple World, from character customization, designing special outfits, building your own dream house and so much more,” Nexon said.

With MapleFest underway, the worker bees at Nexon may have jumped the gun a little early, spoiling the announcement of the Maple Story 2 Global Closed Beta. The Website Is Live HERE with working links to a closed beta sign up (I have signed myself up with no issues). The website announces the Closed Beta signup phase starting today, April 14th and ending May 6th, with the Closed Beta event starting May 9th and ending May 16th. There’s been mixed reactions to MapleStory 2, and I’m not too sure if I’ll invest any serious time in to the game myself unless it brings something new to the table, but I’m interested to see what direction Nexon will go with it. What do you think? Leave a comment below, or join in the discussion on the MMOByte Discord Server. … [Read more...] about MapleStory 2 Landing Page Live And Closed Beta Date Announced
Update: It's official. MapleStory 2 English closed beta begins on May 9th, 2018! Sign up on the official website here! CBT is running from May 9th - May 16th. Signups are open until May 6th. MapleStory 2 is all but confirmed after various internet sleuths dug up Nexon's newest social media accounts. Nexon already set up a page for MapleStory 2 on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitch. An official announcement though is expected to come later today during MapleFest, which can be viewed on Twitch: I'm personally quite excited to play MapleStory 2 in English.

Nexon America posted a job for a Localization Coordinator this last week, which further strengthens my theory that MapleStory 2 is set to be announced for a Western release on April 14th, 2018 during the first ever MapleStory fest. We'll have to wait for official confirmation, but the evidence seems to be mounting that a MapleStory 2 announcement in the West is imminent. While waiting for official news, check out my favorite MapleStory 2 video: FacebookTwitterReddit Related … [Read more...] about Nexon America Posts New Job For “Localization Coordinator” More Evidence That MapleStory 2 Announcement Coming
While we did do a weekly news video just yesterday condensing most, if not all interesting MMORPG news within the week, it just so happens that a little bit more snuck out! Which is of course never a bad thing, so without further ado let’s get started. The first bit of news I’ve got that’s pretty awesome, especially for those of you who’ve played the MapleStory in the past but also for those of you that have been waiting for MapleStory 2 to finally come out in English. Now while I will point that it isn’t 100% confirmed it is likely and therefore worth mentioning. So it’s speculated that at the Maplestory Fest on the 14th of April the MapleStory team will be doing a live Q&A session where they’ll have an exclusive announcement. That is of course not the only reason many people believes its coming out but also because Nexon America is now hiring for new testers, all of this happening not long after the game launched in China, which is … [Read more...] about Is MapleStory 2 Finally Coming Out In English (NA) Soon?
