It’s been all but released at this point, but now it’s official. Later tonight, the MapleStory M worldwide launch will be live at 7pm PT, arriving to North America and 140 countries around the world.
MapleStory M is offering mobile gamers 150 levels’ worth of content, including new classes and an automatic battle and quest function for those who maybe don’t have a lot of time on their hands. Other features that fans of the MapleStory series have come to expect will also be in play, including plenty of character customization, dungeons, pets and mounts.
To celebrate the title’s global launch, a number of events are being held by the MapleStory M team. Players who login to the MMO in the next 14 days will get special in-game items until August 21st, which also happens to be the date those who pre-registered for the game will get their rewards. There will also be extra rewards on offer for those who stream MapleStory M; folks interested in that are advised to keep their eyes on the game’s Facebook page.
Those who are looking for more details can head over to the game’s website.
A game like MapleStory really does seem tailor-made for the platform of mobile gaming, so we suspect that this new pocket version of the popular MMORPG will do pretty well overall. Of course, we’d rather not take advantage of those auto-battle and auto-quest features, but that’s just us. No judgement if you do.
