The MOP Up: MapleStory goes to the arcade


If you’re playing MapleStory, chances are that you’re not too prim and proper to enjoy some goofy fun. So pop in a quarter and enjoy the Arcade Adventures update, which tosses old school-themed minigames into the mix! And make sure that you watch this trailer. Seriously.

“Dive into Retro World, where a whole host of old-school arcade-style games await with tons of prizes to boot,” Nexon said. “Explore a mysterious new dungeon in Detective Rave’s Case Notes. Help Peplock Holmes solve mysteries throughout Maple World by gathering clues, hunting monsters, and completing mini-games. And put your observational skills to the test in our multiplayer Spot the Difference game!”
