MapleStory’s 17th Anniversary Event Sends You to Blooming Forest

MapleStory, the original free-to-play, side-scrolling 2D MMORPG from Nexon, has announced that the latest update in celebration of the game’s 17th Anniversary, Blooming Forest, is now live. The update brings an overabundance of nature to the forest of Arcana and the spirits are inviting Maplers to come to spend some time amongst the flowers, trees, rocks – and even the weeds!

The MapleStory story is one of longevity in a time when games come to market in a flash – and are gone just as fast. Launched globally in 2005, the unique 2D side-scrolling MMORPG with an aggressively cute game style, earned MapleStory legions of fans, known as Maplers, and a player base that longs for a hit of nostalgia. Now, in its seventeenth year, MapleStory continues to grow to offer new, exciting challenges and rewarding adventures to Maplers of all ages.

And, to celebrate MapleStory’s 17th Anniversary, the spirits have brought special events to the Blooming Forest! Maplers can earn Blooming Coins from various activities during the events, which can then be used at the Blooming Communal Coin Shop and the Blooming Personal Coin Shop for value enhancement and cosmetic items.

There are many ways for Maplers to spend quality time in the Arcana forest by participating in themed events and missions, including:

  • Blossoming Flowers (April 27th to June 14th, 2022): Help the Blooming Flowers in Blooming Forest by giving them sunshine and obtaining rewards and Blooming Skill Points each time they bloom! Blooming Skill Points can be used to enhance Maplers passive stats.
