MapleStory M is Nexon's latest effort to bring the Maplestory Mesos MMORPG into Android. It's since been removed, but that does not imply Nexon has given up on bringing the franchise to mobile. In October of 2016 MapleStory M premiered in Korea, but there was no word regarding a English release. Well, it seems like we know for certain that an English version is coming stateside as a public beta is on the Play Store right now.

Now, 1 thing you may wish to keep in mind is that the recent English listing of MapleStory M will just be accessible on the Play Store before January 30th. So if you want to jump in the MMORPG gameplay, you should do so post haste, since the clock is counting down. Additionally, it is worth pointing out that the game's servers will be wiped after this beta is finished, so any progress that you make in the sport will be lost when it is officially released. Fortunately any in-app buys that will undoubtedly be in the last release are not active for the beta, so there's no way to eliminate any money whilst analyzing out the title.

If you're not familiar with MapleStory, it's a highly popular Korean 2D MMORPG that has been accessible on PC since 2003. Yes it is super grindy, and yes it is very pay-to-win, but that's never seemed to stop any of its fans. As for what sets MapleStory M apart from its PC predecessor, nicely, not too much, and that's a fantastic thing. Sure, there are a few quality of life enhancements for simpler touchscreen controls. One of those is the addition of an auto questing button at the top left of the screen, just like you'd expect to see in the majority of mobile MMOs out there. Of course, any auto features are optional, so you are free to perform how you like, which is great for those of us who plan on playing manually.

Oh, and if you were counting on any type of controller service, the beta has no such attribute. Maybe this will be added in afterwards, but that's probably a stretch because the game was available in Korea for a bit more than a year now, as much as I know it doesn't have control support either.

All in all, I must say I was amazed to watch MapleStory M show up on the Play Store having an English version. I am even more excited because it's indeed a lot closer if not nearly exactly the same as the PC version. Sure the super grindy MS2 Mesos gameplay won't be for everyone, and there is no doubt that Nexon will probably be nickel and diming its fans once the game's IAPs are live in the final product. But despite all of the regular complaints, there is something very endearing about the game that is difficult to simply shrug off.
