MapleStory Unveils a New Character
Along with details about the upcoming holiday events, Nexon Europe has revealed a new character for MapleStory: The Forgotten Hero, a well-known hero that returns to the game after the sacrifice to seal away the Black Mage.
“His name may have been lost to the sands of time, but The Forgotten Hero has finally made his return” said Anett Jaschke, Community Manager. “I think MapleStory fans will really love uncovering the history of this mysterious new character.”
Armed with Pirate equipment and Knuckle weaponry, The Forgotten Hero has high Strength and HP. With abilities such as ‘Fox Trot’ he can teleport toward enemies in a heartbeat, while ‘Flash Fists’ allows him to swiftly deal high damage to the Black Mage’s minions.
Regarding holiday events, the game will host a plethora of them. We'll highlight two. From 3rd December, players will be able to participate in the St Nicolas Event. And from the 11th December, the Christmas Event will kick off. During the event Christmas Socks will be dropped by monsters. These can then be filled with equipment and items. 30 minutes later the sock will be stuffed full with a variety of Christmas gifts.
