Not too long ago an update was released that gave the adventurer classes new intros as well as new voices. Blah blah blah blah WHAT IS THISSSSSS. From what I've seen so far the intros for Ranger and Heavy Gunner both show characters that look very similar to the Resistance and Lilin. Does this mean MS2 is some kind of prequel or alternate universe?

    the MS 2 devs said from the very start that MS 2 was a prequel to MS.

    They said since the beginning that it takes place in a time way before the blackmage.

    Now that you mention it I can remember that now. That only makes me wonder the exact amount of time between the two and what happened to some of the previous locations or groups of people in 2.

    However, if it's the time before the black mage, which was supposedly hundreds of years before MS, how are these resistance people (who are supposed to be normal humans, not long-lived elves or half-elves or anything of the sort) in both games? Or are these their ancestors who just happen to have an uncanny resemblance to them?

    I heard the boss in maple story 2 is called the "Not so Black Mage" . Technically MS1 is MS2 since MS1 is the sequel isn't it?

    Maplestory 2 is a prequel and takes place before the events of Maplestory. That was why I had a big problem calling it "Maplestory 2", since a lot of people had the expectation that it was going to be a sequel and identical to Maplestory.

    Nexon has done this before; Vindictus is the prequel to Mabinogi, and in Korea, Vindictus is known as "Mabinogi Heroes".

    Because of the different artists working on the two games I wouldn't try to explicitly pin down the timeline based on Maplestory 2, however Maplestory 2 appears to take place several years prior to Maplestory, while the Black Mage is still sealed (I.E. before Big Bang).

    Actually... I hate to break it to you all, but... the people behind MS 2 have decided to go with, “MapleStory 2 is an alternate Universe.” plan. And before GMS 2 was released to us, apparently they were going to originally going to go with the plan of the Prequel for MapleStory. But decided to trash it for some unknown reason. There are some “original” content on YouTube and such, but you’ll need permission to translate them (Koreans dislike it when you don’t ask permission from them). That’s all the information I got from various sources.
