MapleStory 2 unveils North American website, closed beta starts next month

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.

It looks … like Skysaga? Is that the reason it was canceled?

Unluckily yes…let’s hope that they do not turn the p2w crap too high like the first game :v

I am going to stream this because it looks so cute. I never could get into MapleStory, it was too simplistic, but MapleStory 2 has a full suite of MMORPG features, much more than a murder simulator. It will probably turn into a dating sym in the west though.

The reason I never played MapleStory is because it’s side-scrolling and I can’t imagine an MMO being side-scrolling. I still can’t and I can’t bring myself to try the first one, but will definitely try the second one.

Was wondering if this would ever make it to the west. Neato, wasn’t actually expecting this.

I tried Maplestory (the original 2D one) recently and finely i can enjoy the game, they changed the interface and made it easy to understand and use, before i could not even use my abilities to fight.

For MapleStory 2 i wish to see MJ stream it :-) i’ll watch other streamers too.
