MapleStory: The Girl's Fate Will Be Released in Japan

Posted by Andy Green

No news on a Western release just yet

Earlier this year we reported on a new MapleStory title that emerged on the 3DS exclusively to South Korea.

MapleStory: The Girl's Fate was published by Nexon in the region but that exclusivity has now been broken as SEGA has partnered with the South Korean publisher to take the game to Japan at some point in 2014.

The MapleStory franchise has grown considerably in recent years. It's typically a 2D free-to-play massively multiplayer online RPG that encourages you to interact with other players, trade items with them and band together to form monster hunting parties.

Interestingly, MapleStory: The Girl’s Fate is actually a single player experience and doesn't feature any MMO elements at all. You play as a young girl who has a mysterious spirit trapped inside her and must venture through various levels to be rid of it.

There's still no news on a Western release yet, but at least MapleStory: The Girl's Fate is on the move. MapleStory DS unfortunately didn't make it outside of Japan and South Korea, hopefully the fate of the 3DS title will be different.

Have you played a MapleStory game in the past? Would you like this one come to the West? Let us know by leaving a comment.

I love Maplestory. Hope this comes in the US very soon. Too bad there is no MMO elements. :(

It was only a matter of time, although I never played any game of the series before, it would still be nice if it came to the west!

I hate MapleStory, that game is bland, boring, and repetitive.
I don't wish this game on my worst enemy.

USA Please. I wish the MMORPG elements were there. I guess the closest we get to an online RPG is Phantasy Star Zero and that's a DS game and pretty darn good one at that. Would be neat if Sega would do Phantasy Star Online for 3DS

I like elements of MapleStory and played it in the past. This sounds like it could be a lot more exciting than the original MMORPG.
