MapleStory 2 struggles in Korea


All might not be so dandy for MapleStory’s sequel in Korea. MMO Culture is reporting that MapleStory 2 is struggling overseas even as it eyes a western release in the future. Nexon is pushing out an update that it’s calling the Restart patch with significant changes to the title.

The main thrust of Restart is to act on community concerns for the MMO. Big changes with the patch including a nerf to dungeon difficulty, a reduction in feature requirements, and more bonuses for all. Even if you don’t speak Korean (and you’re amazing, so you probably do), you can get a feel for some of the changes coming with this patch in a video after the break.

He’s saying their company is hoping to make more Sales on the game with the new Restart. Which to my opinion, it’s BAD to focus on Sales in a game if it isn’t fun. The game’s a Ghost town in Korea. They shouldn’t focus on sales, they should pinpoint what’s making people leave the game and fix or add in a reason for players to come back and join the game. NOT focus on Sales. Focus on the fun of the game, THEN focus on Sales. Build an audience first, maintain it, and THEN build the revenue afterwards.


I don’t speak Korean, but I like what I see in the video. If I can turn off some of those particle effects, I’ll be a happy camper. I really hope they release this soon.
