LMAO MapleStory 2 will be short lived in NA, Everyone hype it up for awhile people who left GMS will come back to try it out after maybe 90 days the hype will die out and people will return to GMS.
Go a head believe what YOU want the sad fact about why MapleStory population is declining for is because a lot of the people who played are now having to work ect...
Guys you should just give your hope up on MapleStory 2 Coming to NA , As a Kms2 Player i saw the lack of members in that game and looking around i saw that it was slowly dying off abit. We might not even get the game in our region due to the popularity. Yes you may say "If its dying off then why is the game still coming out with new updates and events" Well Why do you think GMS Is up even if its low on players ? <_< Trying to bring back the community tho its somewhat not working with the Korean. But hey, if we do get MS2, it wont be till after 2020 anyways so just kinda give up on it for now.
there would be no point in releasing a north american english version of maple story 2. the game would totally flop, it's play style has nothing in common with maplestory the original. i am attracted to maplestory due to it being a classic 2d side scroller that is updated to be current. if i wanted to play a 3d mmorpg it wouldn;t be maplestory 2 it would be like diablo 3 or something else entirely.
Wait................... what do you mean by that?
In the Korean market, Maplestory 2 isn't (or wasn't, I'm unsure of its popularity currently) doing as well as Maplestory. This is because of a number of factors, like poor advertising.
A similar issue occurred with the Wii U; Nintendo poorly advertised the system and many people thought it was an extension of the Wii, resulting in lower sales, despite quite a few of the games being quite good.
Overall there's no official release date that I've heard off, either officially from Nexon or from community reports. Only speculation based on supposed job offers related to MS2 appearing and disappearing from the Nexon website. So, we'll see what happens when it happens if it happens, nothing's confirmed or denied and it's mostly up in limbo for now.
Well, there are alot of weird things in this world. Like that Gangnam Style video. Why would that Korean MV receive over 100m views in 2 months, but MapleStory 2 videos are receiving 20k-30k views in 1 year on YouTube?
Because MS2 will never be MS ever. It's a completely different game in general, just with the maplestory license slapped onto it.
