[JapanMS] Big Summer Update Announced, Plus World Merges!

May 27, 2013 10 comments

 
It finally happens! After several years of smaller worlds suffering from low populations, the servers of Keyaki, Puramu, Kunugi and Tsubaki are being merged in July! Any guilds or alliances that share the same names among the four worlds that are being merged will have their server names included next to their guild names. For instance, if there’s a guild in Keyaki named 天下一 as well as a guild in Kunugi named 天下一, they’ll be renamed to けやきの天下一 and くぬぎの天下一, or [けやき]天下一 and [くぬぎ]天下一, or something along those lines. The world alliance server will be named “Azusa.”
 
In addition, the big summer update has been announced for JapanMS! They call it
MapleStory Spark!”

Not much is known of it at the moment, whether it’s an original content update, or if it’s just Unlimited renamed, but if it’s the latter, it’s bound to have some JapanMS-original content, considering any time Nexon Japan renames updates from KMS, they include their own little twists, such as when Chaos was released, they made their own changes to the profession system, as well as the inclusions of Monster Familiar and Soul Weapons.
 
What we know of MapleStory Spark so far is this :
 

  • A new class will be implemented.
  • New high level content will be added.
  • New User Interface changes will be implemented.
  •  
     
    In miscellaneous news, from May 29th to July 3rd, the following will be closed from purchase or functionality for the targeted worlds :
     

  • New character creation.
  • Character slot expansions.
  • Storage slot expansions.
  • New guild and alliance creations.
  • World Transfers (You may not transfer into or out of the targeted worlds until they are merged.)
  •  
     
    Well, there you have it! It looks like the upcoming months will be interesting indeed. That’s all we really know at the moment, but if more information presents itself, I’ll be sure to be here to give you guys notice of it! Stay tuned!
