LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MapleStory, Nexon’s original free-to-play, side scrolling 2D MMORPG with an aggressively cute game style, announces the first of its two-part summer update, “Destiny: Remastered,” lands in-game on June 15, filled to the brim with special events, a revamp of all of Explorer jobs, plus a gift package for pre-registering before June 13!
Summer just wouldn’t be summer in MapleStory without some special, in-game events! It’s time for the season of music and majesty, as new friend Stella comes to experience Maple World first hand. There are a wealth of rewards to collect during the musical summer nights of Starlight Symphony, plus the return of Tera Burning Plus and Burning World. On top of all that, pre-register a character (must be level 61 or above) before 11am PDT on June 13 to get a special Destiny gift package featuring Lil Symphony pets, Angelic Alphabet Damage Skin, a heap of Melody Coins to get a head start in Starlight Symphony, and a Magician of the Sacred Forest outfit!
