One of the most successful free MMORPGs ever and still running today, MapleStory, is going to get a sequel in 2014. The developer is N Square, the studio that marks a cooperation between Nexon and NCsoft and which is also developing the much anticipated Mabinogi 2: Arena.
We already knew about the development of MapleStory 2 for a few years now but this is the first time we have official news on it. This will be a 3D MMORPG in isometric view and will be set before the original MapleStory. Although it features many familiar monsters it will have a new gameplay and world.
The Korean beta test is scheduled for 2014 and the MapleStory 2 teaser site is live.
