MapleStory : Sengoku Era!
Nexon Japan updated the teaser site sometime after 7pm JST today. It seems the big summer update will come in three parts.
Sengoku Part One – The Dawn (暁)
July 11th, 2012
On July 11th, JapanMS will receive a new map. There’s no information on exactly what it is, but it’s apparently big enough to be a stand-alone content, so that makes me very excited about it. Next, there will be a “new system” added to the game. The teaser site calls it “戦国大合戦,” or “The Great Battle of Sengoku!” There’s no real information about what this is exactly. You know for sure that I will be updating this post the instant I get more information.
Update : You can find more information about the first update of the Sengoku Era here : Sengoku Part One – “The Dawn”
Sengoku Part Two – A Blade of Gales (疾風の刃)
July 25th, 2012
The ‘Samurai’ class will be a time-limited class. It will be available between July 25th until sometime in October. The Samurai’s name is “Hayato” and it will be released on July 25th as a stand-alone content update. It seems it will use its own weapon, based on the sprites presented to us on the website.
At the moment, anything further about the class itself is speculation, until Nexon Japan confirms otherwise.
Sengoku Part Three – A Fan of Purple Calamity (紫妖の扇)
August 16th, 2012
The ‘Diviner’ class will be a time-limited class. It will be available between August 16th until sometime in October. The Diviner’s name is “Kanna” and it will be released on August 16th along with the “Ranmaru Expedition.” It seems it will use its own weapon, based on the sprites presented to us on the website.
No information is currently present on what exactly the “Ranmaru Expedition” is. I assume it’s some sort of boss – likely the one presented at the end of the trailer. No confirmation is present at this time. I speculate that the Ranmaru Expedition might have Oda Nobunaga as a boss.
The Great Diviner of that time, Abe no Seimei, had a premonition that, at some point, an entity would appear, wielding the power of the 6th Sky Demon King, and threaten the entire land of Japan.
Time had passed in the world of Sengoku. Just as predicted, a man by the name of Oda Nobunaga appeared, calling himself the 6th Sky Demon King. With an overwelming military force, the world of Sengoku was seized into hegemony in the blink of an eye. In order to be reborn into the 6th Sky Demon King, Nobunaga went to Honnoji to perform the ritual of the Demon King’s Decendant.
However, Abe no Seimei had a premonition that foretold that 5 skilled people would rise to oppose Nobunaga.
From then on, they would be called the “Children of Five Stars,” and they would be burdened to carry the fate of opposing the threat of Oda Nubunaga over the entire nation of Japan. A mark would be printed somewhere on each their bodies to show proof of their heavenly bodies.
A skilled swordman by the name of “Hayato” and a diviner by the name of “Kanna” joined with the military forces for the sake of preventing the ritual of the Demon King’s Decendant. They were the “Children of Five Stars” who would carry the stars of fate in their bodies and carry out their duty of defeating Oda Nobunaga.
That’s it for now! I will update this post as I get more information. For now, I’m going to go hide while I eat and look for more details!
On one last note : soggy noodles are disgusting.
