Maplestory 2 gets Chinese publisher, shows off Rune Blader class

    
7

MapleStory 2 looks to be quite the different beast than MapleStory, most notably with its 3-D cube-dominated visual style. Hey, what can you say? Gamers are cray-cray about cubes these days. Another area in which it is veering off from its predecessor is that MapleStory 2 will be run by the a different Chinese publisher, Tencent Games (MapleStory is handled by Shanda Games).

The sequel also welcomed a new class to the game today in Korea, the Rune Blader. This sword-using class harnesses many of the classic video game elements (fire! ice! heart! …er, dark magic!) to cut through the opposition. You can check out the Rune Blader’s brief trailer after the break.

Karl_Hungus Yep — genderlocked, male only.  Requires snowy weather for their yellowy runes to be melted onto the ground.

Karl_Hungus There was another game (I think?) using the word for a class too and I had the same reaction.

Anyways, afk, gotta drain the blader…

I totally read that as “Rune Bladder.” Now -that- would be interesting.
