  • Three different heroes, Duel Blade, Angerlic Buster and Demon Slayer each with different skills and fighting styles
  • Fun rivalry with the Dungeon and Guild system to compete with friends online
  • Personalization of characters and items
  • Bright and colorful graphics reminiscent of the original PC game

Pocket MapleStory is currently available in select regions through Google Play with plans for a global release after the testing phase.

“Pocket MapleStory has enormous global appeal and recognition as a beloved game for fans of the original MapleStory PC online game and MMORPG titles, generally,” said Myoung Il Kim, the Director of Pocket MapleStory, NEXON Korea. “The continued rollout in new countries will give even more fans access to an unforgettable mobile experience they can take with them wherever they go.”
