With its global launch on July 24, 2018, MapleStory M delivers the nostalgic world of the venerable side-scrolling MMORPG MapleStory to mobile devices. It offers the same limitless customizability, compelling narratives, and dramatic boss raids that fans have come to expect from the illustrious brand.
Grab BLACKPINK-themed packages in MapleStory during the collaboration
As a sneak peeks at the collaborative project, Nexon has released two episodes of the collaboration videos. The first episode of the collaborative films showcases each BLACKPINK member’s preferred dress styles and gameplay experiences from MapleStory. In episode two, the members of BLACKPINK split into the BLACK team (Jisoo, Jennie) and the PINK team (Rose, Lisa), and they used the songs from their hit albums as inspiration to create collaborative products with the game’s art design department.
The two-episode videos in which the members of BLACKPINK discuss their gaming adventures and offer suggestions for design elements have drawn a lot of interest from gamers. MapleStory has launched two BLACK Packages, two PINK Packages, and a BLINK Beauty item (Face/Hair) as part of this cooperation. The JISOO and JENNIE-designed BLACK Packages will have a stylish and charismatic theme drawn from the hit songs “Pink Venom” and “Shut Down.”
The ROSÉ and LISA-created PINK Packages will have a cheerful, giddy, and vibrant idea that was motivated by the well-known songs “As If It’s Your Last,” “Boombayah,” “Ice Cream,” and “DDU-DU DDU-DU.” The official MapleStory and MapleStory M communities in North America, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, and Korea have more information and specifics about the MapleStory and BLACKPINK” partnership update.
